Medication safety self-assessment tools

Medication safety self-assessment tools are specifically designed to help hospitals take an active and system-based approach to medication safety.

These tools, supported by the NSW Clinical Excellence Commission, help hospitals to:

  • Verify their services against the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards
  • Drive change by identifying and measuring areas for improvement
  • Self-assess medication safety practices within their health service
  • Identify improvement opportunities
  • Compare their services with the aggregate experience of similar services.
