Canadian Medication Safety Coalition
The Canadian Medication Safety Coalition brings together industry, leading patient safety and health information organizations, and patient partners to collaboratively develop bold initiatives to reduce medication-related harm. The Coalition is governed by a Steering Committee that is co-chaired by Healthcare Excellence Canada (HEC) and ISMP Canada.
The objectives of the Coalition are to:
- Promote awareness of preventable medication harm;
- Support greater public engagement in preventing medication harm
- Increase government commitment to medication safety at the provincial, territorial and federal levels
- Increase uptake of evidence into action (e.g., implementing interventions to address the WHO’s themes of high-risk situations, transitions in care, and/or polypharmacy).
