Help prevent medication errors by identifying misinformation and improving nursing knowledge with the use of this new tool.
AORN now offers an Adult Medication Safety Assessment that can be used as an on-boarding tool to establish a baseline level of knowledge on medications and also knowledge of Perioperative Standards and Recommended Practices.
Knowledge of perioperative medications and safe practices is critical for positive patient outcomes. This online independent study assessment will help identify knowledge gaps related to perioperative medications. Educators, managers, orientation coordinators, and staffing agencies for travel nurses will find this a helpful tool for on-boarding newly hired, experienced RNs. It can also be used by individual nurses as a self assessment to identify knowledge gaps.
