A recently released ISMP white paper, The Case for Medication Safety Officers (MSO), stresses the need for a MSO to be included as an integral part of the healthcare team. The white paper provides detailed information for hospital leadership on the value of creating a dedicated position directly responsible for and empowered to lead medication safety strategy and implementation. It also describes key roles MSOs can play in optimizing safety, and comparable positions in other safety industries that can serve as models. To access the white paper online, visit ISMP’s website at: https://www.ismp.org/resources/white-paper-case-medication-safety-officers-mso
