Help Transition to Standard Concentrations for Compounded Oral Liquids

You'll see a push to standardize concentrations for compounded ORAL liquids...to help prevent med errors during transitions of care.

Dosing errors occur when patients get switched from one concentration to another but volumes aren't adjusted...especially when they go in or out of the hospital.

For example, baclofen is often compounded as 1, 5, or 10 mg/mL...which can cause up to a ten-fold error if only a dose volume is known.
