The Medication Safety Officers Society (MSOS) is pleased to announce a new educational benefit just for MSOS members – MSOS Member Briefings.  Starting in March, the MSOS will provide free quarterly 1 hour webinars for MSOS members. Participants will hear short medication safety-related presentations from invited speakers on different topics and MSOS members focusing on what they have done at their organization to address a specific medication safety issue. These calls will also include a brief ISMP update on safety issues, and an opportunity to ask questions of the speakers.

Moderated by E. Robert Feroli, these webinars will not include CE credit, but are specifically designed to share ideas and experiences to enhance the knowledge of MSOS members on a variety of current medication safety topics. MSOS members will receive an email approximately a month prior to each call to register for the MSOS Member Briefings; the first of which is scheduled to be held on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at 1 pm EST. Attendance is limited for these programs, so be sure to sign up early. Stay tuned and check your email for MSOS News to register for these in this worthwhile sessions.

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.
