Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our survey on the level of implementation of the two new 2020-2021 Targeted Medication Safety Best Practices (TMSBPs) for Hospitals was put on hold. As crisis mode begins to diminish, we would appreciate your participation in this survey regardless of whether you have implemented the Best Practices.. The survey is available at: www.ismp.org/ext/350 and will be open through July 17, 2020. Since we are only conducting the survey on the two new Best Practices, it should only take you about 5 minutes to complete. You can view all the TMSBPs by going to: www.ismp.org/node/160
