Pharmacists have a significant role to play in promoting safe medication use and preventing patient illness caused by medication error.
The Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) issues regular safety bulletins to keep you informed of unsafe products and situations.
These bulletins feature high-risk medication error–induced patient injuries and offer practical recommendations for their prevention.
Link directly to the ISMP Canada Safety Bulletins page for both current and back issues of the bulletins, as well as direct links to safety newsletters and alerts for consumers issued by SafeMedicationUse.ca.
You can also sign up to receive the ISMP Canada Safety Bulletins, as well as the Safe Medication Use newsletters and alerts, when they are issued
