About this event

On November 28, 2012, the Centre hosted a one-day workshop, titled Towards successful migration to computerized physician order entry for chemotherapy, funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).

A total of 29 end users, policy/decision makers and researchers from various backgrounds (nursing, medicine, pharmacy, and human factors) and from across Canada and the US spent one-day at the Centre identifying, discussing, and prioritizing knowledge gaps in computerized physician/provider order entry (CPOE) adoption and usage in systemic therapy, in particular those related to the usability of CPOE systems. The workshop resulted in a list of priority areas for further research to advance the design, development, and adoption of CPOE systems in systemic therapy. A collaborative partnership of researchers, end-users, and policy makers was also developed to exchange and disseminate findings from future research on this topic.
