MSOS and ISMP are again collaborating sponsors of the ASHP Medication Safety Collaborative (MSC) at the ASHP 2017 Summer Meetings & Exhibition in Minneapolis, MN on June 3-7, 2017. 

The Medication Safety Collaborative (MSC) is for interprofessional teams of clinicians and administrators who focus on quality and patient safety. The content focuses on innovative practices and solutions to optimize safety and quality outcomes. A faculty of distinguished interprofessional patient-safety experts will lead engaging and interactive sessions where attendees can earn more than 19 hours of CPE, CME, or Nursing CE, and also work collaboratively to envision a safer healthcare system and engage with their peers. Learn more about the education and events offered at the Collaborative, and register at www.medicationsafetycollaborative.org.

Mark your calendar for the next MSOS Member Briefings on June 15, 2017 from 1-2 pm EDT.  

The first MSOS Member Briefings webinar on March 15th was a huge success based on the feedback we received from the over 140 members who participated. A handout of the slides can be found at: www.ismp.org/docs/MSOS-Briefings-Slides.pdf.  Future MSOS Member Briefings webinars will allow participants to download a copy of the slides directly from the webinar software.  

If you have a medication safety project at your organization that you would like to share with the group by giving a presentation on the MSOS Member Briefings, please contact Darryl Rich at drich@ismp.org.
