ISMP Medication Safety Self Assessments® are available for various healthcare settings and can be used to assess your practices and processes related to medication use. They are designed to be completed by an interdisciplinary team, including both frontline staff and management.
Medication Safety Self Assessments are valuable tools to help you:
- Proactively assess your medication use processes
- Identify safety risks
- Drive critical, honest discussion around current safety practices
- Create an action plan for improvement
- Track your progress as you implement recommended system-based strategies
Additionally, some assessments allow you to tap into ISMP’s aggregate analysis of de-identified results from facilities around the world and compare your experiences to the experiences of demographically similar institutions.
