Course Information for Medication Safety Essentials 3.0
Medication errors and the safe use of medications continue to be a high priority in healthcare. With an evidenced based, inter-professional approach, this program reinforces the advocacy, responsibility and leadership role healthcare practitioners have in the medication administration process as a component of patient care. The MSE 3.0 course was developed to build a participant’s competency in medication safety following the completion of the prerequisite MSE 1.0 and 2.0 didactic webinars. You will find MSE 3.0 was developed utilizing a much different format than its predecessors – practice-based via case studies and associated PowerPoint presentations.
This course will require completion of a written evaluation and recommendations for improvement and development of a 15 to 20 slide presentation regarding two medication safety cases. Case write ups and power point presentations will be evaluated based on a rubric provided to the learner. A score of 80% or higher must be achieved on the first case/power point presentation before completing the second case and associated power point presentation. Formative feedback from the first case submission should be incorporated by the learner into the written recommendations and presentation of the second case. Each case will be graded within 14 days of submission.

Goals for this Course
The goal of this activity is to provide the learner with foundational didactic knowledge of medication safety essentials as they relate to the medication use process, through 15 hours of pre-requisite material, and to provide a forum for using that foundation in the form of a thoughtful response to a medication error in a case based simulation. Specifically, the pre-requisite material will include didactic CE on a basic and advanced level, and the practice-based activity includes a written response and implementation recommendations to two medication error cases and a prepared presentation evaluation of each case.
To complete and receive credit for MSE 3.0, the participant must:
1. View descriptions of the seven case studies.
2. Review the power point presentation instructional slide deck, along with the rubric, to ensure clear understanding of expectations.
