MSO/OR Pharmacist Wanted for ISMP Presentation

ISMP is conducting a symposium at the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting in Anaheim this coming December on medication safety in the perioperative (OR) setting. We are seeking a medication safety officer or operating room pharmacist who has improved medication safety in the perioperative setting to speak with us on what they did to improve medication safety at their hospital. If you have done this and are interested in participating, or can refer us to someone who has done this, please email drich@ismp.org before August 15th.  Thank you. 

IMPORTANT: We have moved!

In June 2014, the Medication Safety Officers Society (MSOS) moved our website www.medsafetyofficer.org (as well as your existing MSOS user account) to a new web platform. In addition, we stopped using the Google Groups listserv and started using the discussion forum on the new website. Although the old Google Groups listserv is available for archive purposes, you will not be able to post (or respond to posts) on the old listserv. 

MSOS Events at Medication Safety Collaborative were a Success

The ASHP Medication Safety Collaborative from June 1-4 in Las Vegas, NV which MSOS was a collaborating partner, was a resounding success. Even more of a success was the MSOS member meeting, with over 60 in attendance, where we discussed our new website and listserv, coming out very shortly. We also discussed membership demographics, results of the credential survey, and got input on educational programs. The MSOS reception at Maggiano’s the following night, with 30 people in attendance, was also a successful social event for MSOS members.
