A Special Message for Pharmacists

 

Dear Pharmacy Colleague,

We all face challenges in quality and safety that directly impact our work as Pharmacists: 

  • How we prevent, manage and disclose medication errors
  • How we protect against drug diversion
  • How we achieve regulatory compliance
  • How we mitigate risk of adverse drug events
  • How we ensure accurate and complete medication reconciliation
  • How we define and exercise protocols for high-risk drugs
  • How we counsel patients
  • How we promote a culture of safety
  • How we practice Collaborative Drug Therapy Management (CDTM)
  • How we minimize medication errors during transitions of care
  • How we foster antibiotic stewardship
  • How we integrate students and Residents into our practice
  • How we mentor Pharmacists and Certified Technicians
  • How we not only support, but help define, broader quality and safety initiatives

In 2017, the Healthcare Quality and Safety conference offers state-of-the-art approaches to these challenges. 

We have also added accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE). Credits will automatically populate in the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) Continuing Pharmacy Education (CPE) Monitor online system.

We invite you to join us for this exciting and timely program and look forward to meeting you.
