    • Overview

      In 2011, Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simons published a book entitled, “The Invisible Gorilla”.  The book was an analysis of an experiment in the human psyche in which a man in a gorilla costume walked onto a full basketball court, waved his arms in the air, and then walked off the court.  Despite being an unusual outlier for anyone attentive to the game, over 40% of participants in the study never saw the gorilla!  How does this this phenomenon of the human mind apply to our busy pharmacy counters?  This session seeks to evaluate medication error from the lens of what researchers already know about human behavior.  The role of ‘root cause analysis’ within an appropriate ‘continuous quality improvement’ program is carefully examined.  Specific strategies for reducing medication error are introduced, along with opportunities for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to engage in patient safety initiatives. This session has been approved by the state of Florida as a ‘medication safety’ offering for Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians.
