Feedback for Implementation of Continuous Quality Assurance for Medication Safety

Muskoka Algonquin Health Care  ·  April 28, 2017

This initiative is welcomed by Muskoka Algonquin Health Care. There are a few minor comments to be considered: • The document is written as centric to pharmacists and pharmacy practice, and I am not sure that is the most useful, as the medication use circuit involves many different health professionals. • Reporting needs to be easy (downloads from electronic reports) rather than double reporting once to the internal system and then once to the external system will be essential to the success of the program. • Reporting to an independent third party, such as ISMP is important. • Standardized definitions of incidents are important – will it include near miss? Will it include incidents which did not reach the patient.
