50 minutes
Watch Now

Health systems face numerous challenges in improving inpatient glycemic management. Insulin continues to be recommended as the primary treatment for hyperglycemia in the hospital, and is involved in 16.3% of medication error reports for high-alert medications. Pharmacists, the medication experts, are well-positioned to improve the safe and effective use of insulin in the hospital. Hear key strategies that pharmacists have used to drive change and improve insulin safety across the health system.

Key takeaways include:

  • Deeply understand the importance of process improvement and how a lack of standardization can lead to adverse glycemic events.
  • Ways in which the successful implementation and integration of technology can be vital to optimizing insulin safety and patient care.
  • How safety guardrails built into Glucommander can prevent hypoglycemia and reduce time to target with IV insulin therapy.
