Medication Safety Improvement Group

Workshop: 10-11th June 2020 Virtual Webinar



Further information will be provided to members soon.

UPDATE: In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, to protect our health workforce and acknowledge the service demands during these unprecedented times, components of this Medication Safety Improvement Group will be delivered virtually. Whilst this is an opportunity to explore and experiment with alternate delivery, we anticipate returning to the workshop model in the near future.


Advances in medicines have significantly improved life expectancy, quality of life and delaying the onset of diseases. The challenges of delivering safe and cost-effective medication, education to staff, patients and carers is critical in ensuring patient safety in the hospital and community.
In 2018, the AIHW reported $3 billion was spent on medicines in public hospitals in 2015-16. However, there is an incomplete picture of medicines dispensed in hospitals. The Medications improvement group is now in its 6th year and provides hospital and health leaders to learn how to achieve medications best practice.
The 2020 Medication Safety Improvement Group aims to improve the provision of high-quality and safe practice through tailored data analysis leveraging the adoption of electronic medication records and data.

Our exclusive reports highlight key insights for your facility and our unique workshops create collaboration and innovation sharing of best practice across Australia and New Zealand members.

After our Medication Safety workshop, you will have analysed your data, highlighted an opportunity, leveraged best practice and have an implementation plan ready to present to the workshop the following year.

The Medication Safety Workshop is an exciting and unique event to:

  1. Learn how to analyse the Medication report data
  2. Identify your organisations opportunities to improve
  3. Celebrate where your teams are exemplars
  4. Listen to leading experts in Medication Safety
  5. Share your innovations to the membership across Australia and New Zealand.

The goals of the group are to:

Bring together a Multi-Disciplinary group of Pharmacists, Physicians, Nurses, Health information Managers and Data Analysts to identify “best practice” for safe and effective medicines use in Australasian hospitals.

Reduce adverse hospital events and complications that are attributed to medications

Identify “exemplar performers” in relation to medication safety practices

Share innovations in practices with an aim to improve patient and staff experience in relation to the dispensing and management of medication.
