Description

Summary

The purpose of the proposed research is to create and disseminate consensus-based recommendations for perioperative medication safety that are tailored to country income level, using the World Bank's four country income groups: high, upper-middle, lower-middle, and low income. The specific aims of the research are to: 1) Develop consensus-based perioperative medication safety recommendations, 2) Prioritize the recommendations by their level of clinical importance for implementation in high, upper-middle, lower-middle and low income countries, and disseminate the recommendations; and 3) Evaluate the initial adoption of the recommendations in each country income group.

Official Title

Global PRoMiSe (Perioperative Recommendations for Medication Safety): A Consensus-Based, Generalizable Approach

Details

The overall objective of the proposed research is to create and disseminate consensus-based recommendations for perioperative medication safety that are tailored to country income level, using the World Bank's four country income groups: high, upper-middle, lower-middle, and low income. The proposed project will include the entire medication use process (ordering, dispensing, preparing, administering, documenting and monitoring). The specific aims of the research are to:

  1. Develop consensus-based perioperative medication safety recommendations. Approach: This study will use the extensively studied RAND-UCLA Delphi Method to achieve consensus, with an expert panel consisting of anesthesiologists, surgeons, nurses and medication safety experts from each of the World Bank's four country income groups.
  2. Prioritize the recommendations by their level of clinical importance for implementation in high, upper-middle, lower-middle and low income countries, and disseminate the recommendations. Approach: The expert panel members will rank each recommendation by its importance as a next step in improving medication safety in each country income group. A Condorcet ranking method will be used to combine individual rankings into a single list of recommendations ranked by the importance of implementation for each country income group. The investigators will then execute a comprehensive dissemination strategy.
  3. Evaluate the initial adoption of the recommendations in each country income group. Approach: The investigators will conduct qualitative, one-on-one, semi-structured interviews of the expert panel members, to evaluate their perceptions of initial adoption of the recommendations in each country income group. A grounded theory approach will be used to identify common themes.
