Abstract

Imagine you're a nurse working in the emergency department (ED) of a small hospital who wants to reduce medication errors in your department. You decide to implement a "no interruption zone" for medication preparation. Is this quality improvement (QI) or research? Because of my work as a research consultant, I was recently asked this very question.
