MSC offers four days of interactive education and invaluable networking that will equip and inspire attendees to immediately implement their newfound knowledge into their practices. Join together with interprofessional teams of clinicians and administrators who focus on quality and patient safety. At the 2016 Medication Safety Collaborative, participants will not only obtain more than 18 hours of CE in their respective fields (CME, CPE, Nursing CE), but will also work collaboratively to envision a safer healthcare system and engage with their peers to discover solutions. Most importantly, they will gain key insights and knowledge that they can then apply to their practices.  Encourage your patient safety colleagues to attend!
