Strengthening Medication Safety in Long-Term Care

The Ministry of Long-Term Care (MLTC) in Ontario is partnering with ISMP Canada for 3 years to support long-term care homes in strengthening medication safety.

This initiative will help address recommendations from the Gillese Inquiry, including strengthening medication management to deter and detect intentional and unintentional harm in homes.

ISMP Canada is providing tools and support to long-term care Homes in 4 key areas.
