Medication Safety Showcase

To mark World Patient Safety Day 2022, we are showcasing medication safety initiatives from health services around Australia.

World Patient Safety Day is an initiative of the World Health Organization (WHO) that calls for global solidarity and action to improve patient safety.

The theme for 2022 is Medication Safety – ‘Medication without harm’, across three flagship areas: Polypharmacy, High-risk medicines, and Transitions of care. 

The Commission supports WHO in their efforts to increase safe use of medicines.

Project Showcase

We extend our thanks to the 13 health services from across Australia that submitted posters showcasing their hospital Quality Improvement achievements in medication safety.

View details and summaries of each of these projects below.
