About The Event

The third WHO Global Patient Safety Challenge is Medication Without Harm. It aims to reduce severe avoidable medication-related harm by 50% globally in the next 5 years. But, how will healthcare organizations know whether their improvement efforts have been effective in contributing toward this goal? Many healthcare organizations  struggle to undertake routine medication safety measurement and surveillance, if at all. Most organizations still rely on voluntarily reported incident reporting to monitor the state of medication safety despite its well known limitations. 

In this presentation, presenter will provide a brief overview of contemporary medication safety measurement and monitoring research. Using an organizational case study from Waitemata District Health Board as an illustrative example, we will consider how medication safety can be practically, sustainably and routinely measured for the purpose of monitoring progress and informing further improvement.  

Key Takeaways: 

1) Get insights on a how medication safety is being measured at Waitemata District Health Board

2) Obtain ways to make better use of existing and routinely collected data 

3) Learn how the development process is more important than the output
