Dear ,
Please complete the Independant Medical Education delegate survey for Medication Errors Symposium (Eswatini)

SwaziPharm is proud to fund the conference registration costs for 4x General Practitioners, 3x Pharmacists and 3x Registered Nurses from Eswatini to the Medication Errors Symposium in Eswatini, on 7 August 2019. 

Medication errors are relatively understudied in Southern Africa and the Kingdom of Eswatini is no exception. The scale and nature of medication errors differs from country as well as regions. Globally, it has been estimated that costs associated with medication errors have reached US$ 42 billion annually. The goals of healthcare bodies like WHO and CDC are to develop programs around medication safety meant at improving and strengthening systems for reducing medication errors and avoid medication-related harm which lead to adverse effects of human fatality.

The one-day symposium will address a wide array of pertinent discussions including an understanding of the scale of medication errors as a risk in healthcare and the methods being used to prevent errors considering the Global Patient Safety Challenge project. Join healthcare experts, regulatory authorities and pharmaceutical companies as the symposium develop policies, strategies and build frameworks for reducing mediation-related harm in medical and healthcare settings.

Don't miss out and apply NOW!
