ISMP is conducting a brief survey to get a general sense of the current level of implementation of the 2018-2019 Targeted Medication Safety Best Practices for Hospitals. We are also interested in knowing about any barriers to implementation.
We would greatly appreciate your participation in this survey regardless of whether you have or have not implemented any or all of the best practices.

Survey ends July 19, 2019.
