High risk medicines: national campaign and one-day conference

How can harm with high risk medicines be prevented? This area is part of the Patient Safety First campaign and a one-day conference on 7 July (see here) will provide an update on ‘Improving Patient Safety and Reducing Harm from High Risk Medicines’. A range of speakers will discuss topics such as managing high-risk medicines at and after hospital discharge, and involving patients, together with an update on the campaign, and case studies on anticoagulants, insulin, opiates and injectable medicines.
