    What a wonderful illustration of the importance of collaboration in QI work. Even when redesigning a process that affects a relatively small number of patients, it's astounding how many stakeholders are involved. This truly reflects organizational commitment to medication safety across WCH - despite being an ambulatory centre. An analysis of the various steps revealed just how many opportunities there are for error in what appears to be a straightforward process. This could potentially serve as a blueprint of sorts for future medication process redesign related to diagnostic testing or minor procedures. It was a pleasure to help this amazing team pull together the poster, but all credit for this great QI work goes to the numerous folks involved.

    Great work! It seems like you have really created a safe, standardized, implementable process for dobutamine administration. I would be curious to know how this is done at other centres, as they may have a lot to learn from you!
