IMPORTANT: We have moved!

In June 2014, the Medication Safety Officers Society (MSOS) moved our website (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.
