Yet sadly, research shows most drug diversion in hospitals goes undetected, and a majority of hospitals are not confident in the effectiveness of their drug diversion prevention program.
Join Tom Knight, Deborah Koivula (Statewide Peer Assistance for Nurses at the New York State Nurses Association), Kristin Waite-Labott (Founder of the Wisconsin Peer Alliance for Nurses and author of An Unlikely Addict), and nurses as they share personal experiences and struggles with drug diversion.
We will also review the AJHP study recently published of NIH-funded research that shows machine learning and advanced analytics can detect drug diversion earlier. When combined with peer support, detecting diversion earlier can help co-workers struggling with substance abuse disorder so they can get the help they need before hurting themselves or a patient.
