Course Description

A medication safety incident is defined as an unexpected or unintended incident which could have, or which did lead to any harm to one or more patients. Medication safety incidents can occur at any stage of the process involved in the delivery of medicines to patients. These stages could range from prescribing medications (which includes transcribing or the physicians ordering medicines), dispensing, preparation, administration and monitoring of the medications. Similarly, in the ambulatory settings, the patients who are the ultimate users of drugs can also make errors at any stage of medicine use. The outcomes of the errors may range from mild inconvenience to the patient to even fatal toxic reactions. Therefore, methods need to be employed to detect the occurrence of such errors.
