The MSOS Guidelines Committee reviewed a number of suggested new guidelines it received in our last survey in April 2015.   We then consolidated them into a set of 19 medication safety guidelines to recommend to ISMP for future development. We are now requesting that MSOS members complete the following survey by no later than July 20, 2015 to help the Guidelines Committee by ranking the priority of the need for these proposed guidelines. This information will be used to submit a finalized and prioritized list to ISMP.

MSOS has been asked by individuals for help in justification of creating a medication safety officer position in their hospitals. To help with this, we are asking our MSOS members whose formal primary role (full or part-time) is that of a “Medication Safety Officer” in an acute care hospital, to complete a very short TWO (2) question survey by no later than Tuesday, July 7, 2015. The survey can be found at the following link: https://surveys.ismp.org/s3/MSOS-Hospital-Bed-Size-Survey.

ISMP is repeating, for the final time, a short survey to get a general sense of progress in the implementation of the 2014-15 Targeted Medication Safety Best Practices for Hospitals, before the 2016-2017 Best Practices are identified and released. We would appreciate your participation as a MSOS member regardless of whether you have or have not implemented any or all of the practices. You can take the survey by visiting: www.surveymonkey.com/r/TMSBP2015. The survey will be open until July 8, 2015.

We would like to thank all of those who attended the MSOS Membership Meeting and Reception at the 2015 ASHP Medication Safety Collaborative in Denver, CO this past week. We had a great attendance and there was a lot of discussion. At the meeting:
• Medication safety issues were brought up by members and attendees discussed solutions that work at their hospitals.
• Many attendees were surprised to learn that to receive an email of posts and replies from our discussion board (Forum), members have to subscribe to the Forum – it is not automatic.

In an effort to learn more about the medication safety-related educational needs of MSOS members, the newly established MSOS Education Committee is seeking your input for upcoming educational program topics. In addition, the committee would also like to know more about your preferred format for receiving the education.

Please consider providing feedback by completing the educational needs survey, which can be found at: https://surveys.ismp.org/s3/MSOS-Educational-Needs-Survey.

The mission of the Medication Safety Officers Society (MSOS) is to advance and encourage excellence in safe medication use by providing communication, leadership, direction, and education among its members.
