Paediatric nurses activities may be challenging since paediatric patients may be more prone to intravenous (IV) medication administration errors (MAEs) and continuous training is pertinent.
A questionnaire was developed, validated and distributed to nurses working in paediatric wards. Nurses were asked using a 5-point Likert scale.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
