The Health Quality & Safety Commission recently held two national medication safety workshops. The first, for the National Medication Chart, brought DHBs together to review implementation progress and lessons learned, and plan for future developments of the chart.
The second workshop, on medication reconciliation, also reviewed progress to date and looked at tools and approaches for spreading medicine reconciliation to more patients, more services and expanding from admission to other transition points, ie, transfer and discharge.
