Public

Description:

This stimulating new course offering is a collaborative initiative between Purdue University's College of Pharmacy and School of Nursing, and the Indiana Hospital Association's (IHA) Coalition for Care. The program builds upon the initial Medication Safety series, which laid a framework for medication safety concepts and tools to aid in the creation of a culture of safety, focusing on systems redesign as well as outcomes for meeting patient needs. This new course will, again, provide online training in seven individual one-hour modules covering additional concepts of Medication Safety Essentials.
