Medication Management Safety and Quality Metrics Webinar

January 8, 2020

This webinar will introduce a set of primary metrics that we recommend are tracked by all hospitals with a standardized numerator and denominator, with the goal of being able to benchmark across multiple institutions.  Presenters will also introduce a set of secondary metrics that we recommend are periodically reviewed by all hospitals, but are not necessarily measured in a standardized way and discuss the importance of hospitals tracking metrics that reflect the medication use process.

Target Audience

  • Pharmacists
