Abstract

The NHS Injectable Medicines Guide (IMG) is used by nurses in >100 hospitals to guide the preparation & administration of IV medicines. Surveys suggest users find it too detailed & confusing. This may make it difficult to find relevant, unambiguous information & could lead to serious medication errors. We aimed to identify & resolve problems in two typical IMG guides via user testing.
