Medication Safety Series
Medication errors and the safe use of medications continue to be a high priority in healthcare. Colleagues, families and patients need practitioners to be better and safer at using the lifesaving therapies that research has given them in the form of medications. In partnership with the College’s Center for Medication Safety Advancement (CMSA), we have developed a Medication Safety Series which is a comprehensive, didactic and practice-based program that covers medication safety concepts and tools that meet the standards of the pharmacy, medical, and nursing governing bodies as well as the needs of practitioners. With an evidenced based, inter-professional approach, this program reinforces the advocacy, responsibility, and leadership role healthcare practitioners play in the medication administration process as a component of patient care.
This Medication Safety Essentials program will guide the learner throughout every major process in the medication safety system. Each module will not only educate the learner in a specific topic, but will also introduce tools and methods to improve safety in their own practice. This program can be purchased as individual modules, as a series of modules or as a bundle of all three (1.0, 2.0 and 3.0) for a 10% discount.
