Global launch of safeMedicate® & a review of the safeMedicate® masterclass presented at HPSN World 2013
The global launch of safeMedicate® (formerly eDose in the USA and Canada) took place at the CAE Healthcare 2013 HPSN World Conference (San Francisco, California, USA, 30th June – 2nd July 2013).
The software has been known by the name safeMedicate® in the UK for some time and strategic partners Authentic World Ltd and CAE Healthcare made the decision to adopt this name to present a consistent brand globally and avoid any confusion over names. We feel the name safeMedicate® also better describes the program and supports our raison d’etre which is to increase patient safety by reducing medication error.
Authentic World Ltd and CAE Healthcare presented a safeMedicate® masterclass at the 2013 HPSN World conference.
The podium and exhibition masterclass presentations focused on seminal advances in the design features of the safeMedicate® medication dosage calculation learning and assessment environments. Approximately 1000 delegates attended the three-day event and gained first hand experience of the new safeMedicate® environment planned for release in autumn / fall 2014:
- A mobile learning and assessment platform.
- An NCLEX® (and similar examination) type question preparation and assessment program.
- An authentic injectable medicine dimensional analysis learning and assessment program.
The illustration below shows how the new safeMedicate® authentic learning and assessment environment is designed to support the preparation of nurses and other healthcare professionals for the dosage calculation problem-solving competence and qualification requirements of:
- The real concrete world of clinical practice.
- Examinations including NCLEX®.
