TALLman Lettering

Developed with support from Health Canada

Medication incidents are a leading cause of preventable adverse events. Drug name confusion, particularly because of look-alike/sound-alike (LASA) name attributes, can be a contributing factor to medication related adverse events.

TALLman lettering is a method of applying upper-case lettering to sections of LASA drug names as a differentiation strategy.
