ISMP Newsroom

Safe medication practices depend on communication within the healthcare community, including patients and their families. ISMP is at the forefront of medication error reporting and guidance on safe medication practices, and is often cited in the media as a reputable resource for current information and emerging trends. In 2020, ISMP formally affiliated with ECRI to create one of the largest quality and safety entities in the world. ISMP's Newsroom includes ISMP and ECRI news releases, as well as ISMP blog posts, statements, and other communications.
