In this hospital, the nurses face intravenous (iv) admixture problems in preparing and delivering iv injection and/or infusion to patients due to their limited background knowledge of drug stability and incompatibility. The nurses lack comprehension in maintaining the physical and chemical stability of the drugs. When stability is disrupted, incompatibility may occur. The incompatibility will diminish the effectiveness and the safety of drugs. Six small classes are conducted at the hospital, with 184 total attendants. There are three sessions: i. drug stability, ii. iv injection or infusion delivery, iii. case study (preparing and delivering several iv injections and/or infusions). The effectiveness of iv admixture training was evaluated through questionnaires and formative test (pre-test and post-test sessions). A process evaluation is based on both a 5-point Likert scale questionnaires and pencil and paper test distributed for each session. The nurses awareness of iv drug incompability, as an impact of the training, is showed through a percentage of pharmaceutical queries before and after training.
