Education Opportunities

Island Health's medication safety strategy seeks to bring an interdisciplinary, collaborative approach to embedding safe medication practices into our everyday work at Island Health. The Medication Safety Implementation Committee is partnering with expert colleagues in a range of program areas, including Pharmacy, Professional Practice, Clinical Practice, Care Delivery Model Redesign and Information Management/Information Technology(IMIT), to initiate a new approach to the business of keeping our patients safe. 

Part of these changes will include the development of new technology, and with that, the need to spread medication safety knowledge, awareness and resources throughout our organization. In order to keep you up-to-date on medication safety best practices, the medication safety team will be offering ongoing opportunities for education, participation and advice.
