Prevent Serious Reportable Events with Evidence-Based Information
EBSCO Health’s point-of-care databases including Nursing Reference Center™ Plus and DynaMed Plus®, ensure the highest-quality evidence is driving decision-making, resulting in fewer errors and prevention of Serious Reportable Events (SREs). SREs are inexcusable adverse outcomes that are largely preventable and should never happen in a health care setting. The term Serious Reportable Events refers to a list of 29 adverse events classified by the National Quality Forum (NQF) as ‘Serious Reportable Events in Healthcare', and the NQF’s National Quality Strategy goals include:
- Reducing preventable hospital admissions and readmissions
- Reducing the incident of adverse health care associated conditions
- Reducing harm from inappropriate or unnecessary care
Nursing Reference Center Plus can help nurses prevent serious avoidable events with evidence-based resources including disease and conditions overviews that map to the nursing workflow, nursing skills and procedures, nursing competency checklists, point-of-care information and much more.
DynaMed Plus provides the best available evidence at the point-of-care and helps physicians make informed clinical decisions resulting in fewer errors. Updated daily, DynaMed Plus editors monitor the content of over 500 medical journals on a daily basis through Systematic Literature Surveillance.
