Medication Safety Workshop

CoM Pharmacy Department

The Medication Safety Workshop is being organised as part of activities under the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Medication Management Project (QMMP).  It is organised in response to an identified need to enhance and implement a Patient Safety Culture in the Malawi health care system. Preliminary findings from the QMMP project and other recent research will be used to illustrate the medication safety issues in our local setting and initiatives being undertaken by the  Pharmacy Department of the College of Medicine in collaboration with other institutions. It is hoped that the workshop will provide a platform for participants to discuss  patient safety issues in a Malawian context and also gain several skills that participants may apply in their daily practice. It is hoped that the workshop will facilitate an improvement in  patient safety at all stages in the medication use pathway.
