Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) Workshops:

Moving to a New Culture: Enhancing Medication Safety:

With support from Health Canada, ISMP Canada is able to offer Basic and/or Intermediate Failure Mode and Effects Analysis workshops to organizations across Canada.

Organizations interested in minimizing the risk of adverse or unintended events often conduct an FMEA. FMEA is a team-based systematic and proactive approach for identifying ways that a process or design can fail, why it might fail, and how it can be made safer. In the context of healthcare, FMEA first strives to eliminate potential failures before they occur and then to keep the failure from reaching the patient.
