The day will provide updates on national initiatives to improve medication safety and the sharing of local strategies utilised to prevent harm to patients.  A focus will be the NHS response to the WHO patient Safety Global Challenge “Medication without Harm”.  The day will provide training on Quality Improvement methodology tools and attendees will work together in workshops to discuss and formulate plans to use these tools back at their host organisations. 

There will be a focus on high risk medications and strategies to prevent harm.  A presentation on a Serious Medication Incident will provide attendees with an opportunity to reflect on both the processes involved in investigating a medication incident and the lessons learned.  Specialist Clinical Pharmacists will give focused presentations on reducing the risk of harm with high risk medicines such as antibiotics and anticoagulants.
