Medicines, Be Safe, Be Confident Seminar

Overview

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (ACSQHC) has identified a range of areas as priorities, which have been included in the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards (NSQHS Standards). These Standards are being implemented across public and private healthcare organisations and are used in accreditation. It is important that all nurses become familiar with these Standards, how they relate to minimising risk, and how they affect everyday practice. This seminar provides access to current information where the medication aspect of the Standard can be fully understood and discussed.

Need for Program

Nurses need access to formal education that practically explains how they relate to evidenced-based knowledge of medication safety that is aligned with the NSQHS Standards to their everyday practice. This seminar provides a safe and interactive environment to openly discuss medication safety.
