Thursday, February 23 | 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM WEBINAR
The Gillese Inquiry set clear recommendations for important measures all long-term care homes should take to enhance medication safety. Learn about new resources under development by the non-profit Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) Canada that respond to those recommendations. Ensure your home stays “in the know” about leading protocols and helpful tools that can help you to evaluate, benchmark and improve your safety program. Join us!
- Hear details of ISMP Canada’s planned update of its Medication Safety Self-Assessment for Long-Term Care (MSSA-LTC), to reflect the Inquiry’s recommendations and include pro-active evaluation for potential and preventable “never events,” in which a resident suffers serious harm or death.
- Find out about a separate, three-year joint project ISMP Canada is undertaking with Ontario’s Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to further address the Gillese Inquiry’s recommendations around strengthening medication safety in LTC.
- Get information about an opportunity to validate the updated MSSA-LTC tool.
