Special Issue "Medications Safety Issues"
A special issue of Pharmacy (ISSN 2226-4787).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2020).
Interests: medication safety, evidence-based health care, implementation science
Medication safety plays an essential role in all healthcare organizations; focusing on improvement in this area is paramount to wider quality and safety programs. Many interventions to address medication errors have been described in the literature, including use of computer-assisted management, computerized physician pre-scribing systems, barcoding and robotics, as well as clinician training and education, system changes and guideline implementation. These interventions have had varied results in terms of improving patient safety and reducing adverse events in both the hospital and primary care setting.
We invite you to share your approaches and successes in addressing medication safety. We hope this Special Issue will inspire researchers to share their own practices, adopt new approaches and innovate to make improvements.
