FDA’s Division of Drug Information in the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) is excited to present a series of educational webinars targeting the needs of all health care professionals and students, including physicians, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, and pharmacy technicians. Interact with FDA staff from a variety of divisions and learn more about the FDA and drug regulation!
On Tuesday, June 30, 2020, CDER's Office of Communication, Division of Drug Information (DDI) hosted a webinar titled: FDA Drug Topics: Role of FDA and ISMP in Preventing Medication Errors. This webinar described the role of the Division of Medication Error Prevention and Analysis (DMEPA) in preventing and addressing medication errors through pre-market and post-market activities. DMEPA also collaborates with external stakeholders, such as the nonprofit Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP), a federally authorized patient safety organization (PSO). The webinar illustrated how information from the ISMP National Medication Errors Reporting Program is shared with FDA in a way that benefits overall drug safety. Actions taken to address recent medication error reports were explored, as well as the role of pharmacists in identifying, preventing and mitigating medication errors.
