Once again, MSOS is a collaborating partner (along with ISMP) in the 2015 ASHP Medication Safety Collaborative, this year at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver CO from June 6-10, 2015. This unique track is dedicated to medication safety, and is a “must” for all medication safety officers and those interested in medication safety. In fact, it is a meeting for the entire patient safety team. 

Similar to last year, MSOS will be having a membership business meeting on Sunday, June 7th from 12:30 to 1:30pm, in Room 110 of the Colorado Convention Center and a MSOS membership reception on Monday, June 8th from 5:30 pm to 6:30pm at Maggiano's Italian Restaurant (bar area) at 500 16th St., #150 (Denver Pavillions - a few blocks from the convention center). Free cocktails and hors d'oeuveres will be served., so mark your calendar and plan on being there.
