Looking forward to Roundtable on Patient Safety in Washington D.C.
Really looking forward to heading to Washington D.C. again, the week after next, representing the Emily Jerry Foundation. I feel very humbled and privileged to have been invited to participate in the Roundtable on Patient Safety and Hospital Compounding on October 11th. We will all be working together to find comprehensive ways to save lives from preventable medication errors and put a stop to tragedies, like what happened, not only with my daughter Emily, but also with so many others, before they actually happen.
The Roundtable on Patient Safety and Hospital Compounding aims to bring together key stakeholders to review the last five years in hospital medication safety advances and clinical practices; consider where further refinements can benefit patients and providers; and to develop consensus recommendations that advance the next critical phase of best practices and research recommendations.
