Proactive Risk Assessments

Members of the ISMP consulting staff bring decades of experience in medication risk identification and thus can provide objective recommendations for safety improvement of the medication process to your organization.

Comprehensive Proactive Risk Assessment
As the most widely requested consulting process, the comprehensive assessment is designed for healthcare organizations interested in a broad, objective, and confidential evaluation of the safety of their present medication use processes. Employing ISMP’s conceptual model the Key Elements of the Medication Use Process, experienced members of the ISMP team utilize their extensive understanding of medication systems to conduct a complete assessment of the organization. Using an educational approach, the team collects information about current medication practices through direct observation and interviews with individuals and designated committees. Team members will identify those areas that present risk exposure and provide high-leverage, organization-specific error prevention strategies. An exit summary and written report provide a complete analysis of current medication risk exposure along with the recommendations and tools necessary for improvement.

Comprehensive Proactive Risk Assessments are performed by experienced ISMP professionals, including pharmacists, nurses, and physicians. Team members are selected based on the type of organization and the specific populations served.
