June 30, 2020
This webinar will describe the role of the Division of Medication Error Prevention and Analysis (DMEPA) in preventing and addressing medication errors through pre-market and post-market activities. DMEPA also collaborates with external stakeholders, such as the nonprofit Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP), a federally authorized patient safety organization (PSO). The webinar will illustrate how information from the ISMP National Medication Errors Reporting Program is shared with FDA in a way that benefits overall drug safety. Actions taken to address recent medication error reports will be explored, as well as the role of pharmacists in identifying, preventing and mitigating medication errors.
