Move past the clipboards, and come take a seat at the table. You, the CRNA, are integral to leading changes in medication practices and improving patient outcomes. Regulators are now actively discussing the causes of perioperative medication errors (ME), and implementing guidelines to improve care. It is time for nurse anesthetists to appreciate the causes and impact of ME, and become leaders in medication practice improvement. Without a seat at the table, we cannot ensure that new regulation effectively promotes patient safety and optimizes anesthesia practice.
