ISMP Canada Safety Bulletins are designed to disseminate timely, targeted information to reduce the risk of medication incidents. The purpose of the bulletins is to confidentially share the information received about medication incidents which have occurred and to suggest medication system improvement strategies for enhancing patient safety. The bulletins will also share alerts and warnings specific to the Canadian market place.
Background Information on the CMIRPS
In the fall of 2000, an invitational workshop was co-hosted by the Canadian Society of
Hospital Pharmacists (CSHP) and Health Canada’s Bureau of Licensed Product Assessment (BLPA)
to address a number of key questions related to medication incident reporting and prevention. The
workshop led to the creation of a national coalition of stakeholders – the Canadian
Coalition on Medication Incident Reporting and Prevention (CCMIRP). This coalition
led the creation of a business plan for the development and implementation of a national
medication incident reporting and prevention system.
