Introducing ISMP's New Targeted Best Practices for 2018-2019


Join ISMP for a complimentary webinar as we seek to inspire and mobilize practitioners from around the US in the national adoption of specific consensus-based safe practices selected to reduce or eliminate the repetitive medication safety issues that continue to cause fatal and harmful errors to patients.

During this FREE webinar, learn about ISMP’s three new Targeted Medication Safety Best Practices for Hospitals and why they were selected for national action. This call to action includes new targets on the use of injectable promethazine, fentaNYL patches, and the use of external error information for advancing safety. Our speaker will also provide an update on the national progress with implementation of ISMP’s eleven Targeted Medication Safety Best Practices from 2016-2017; giving participants the opportunity to weigh in on their current level of adoption. Don’t miss this opportunity to join this important call and align your safety practices.
