ISMP has just released the first in a series of “video newsletters” being produced in partnership with the Temple University School of Pharmacy. The videos, which will be in a news format with short interviews, are designed to provide insight on key medication safety issues from nationally recognized experts. They will provide a summary of top content from the biweekly ISMP Medication Safety Alert! newsletter.

The first video, now available online, focuses on:

  • *IV Push Medication Use
  • *Eliminating Ratio Expressions
  • *ISMP’s Targeted Medication Safety Best Practices

We wish to thanks all those who came to the MSOS Networking Meeting and Reception at the 2016 ASHP Medication Safety Collaborative in Baltimore MD this past week. We had over 40 people attend both functions. We had some lively discussion on the new ISMP White Paper on the Value of the Medication Safety Officer, and on what is the definition of "harm" when classifying medication errors. We look forward to seeing you next year in Minneapolis. 

The mission of the Medication Safety Officers Society (MSOS) is to advance and encourage excellence in safe medication use by providing communication, leadership, direction, and education among its members.
