About the Medication Safety Officers Society

The mission of the Medication Safety Officers Society (MSOS) is to advance and encourage excellence in medication safety by providing communication, leadership, direction, and education for its members. MSOS offers an open forum for information sharing and collaboration.

MSOS was founded in 2013 by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) to continue the mission of the now dissolved American Society of Medication Safety Officers. MSOS has an expanded reach that includes medication safety officers, medication safety coordinators, and others interested in safe medication use on both a national and international scale. With a multidisciplinary membership of over 2,000, MSOS is an important resource supporting the work of the entire healthcare team to improve safe medication use. Membership in MSOS is currently free to all individuals who work in healthcare or a healthcare-related field.
