Advancing safe medication use

The Institute for Safe Medication Practices Canada is an independent national not-for-profit organization committed to the advancement of medication safety in all healthcare settings.


ISMP Canada Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update


As we follow the guidance from Public Health and governments at local, provincial and national levels we are working to support the safety of our staff as well as continuing our work to support the safety of the broader health care system and public safety.


We acknowledge and commend the efforts of all leaders, health care providers and organizations, including all supporting staff, as they care for patients and families during the coronavirus pandemic. Our thoughts are with all of you at this difficult time.


ISMP Canada will continue to provide resources, consultations, and educational programs through e-mail, phone, and online learning platforms to ensure that we stay connected to advance medication safety learning and knowledge translation as needed.


We welcome your questions or concerns as we strive to identify, understand and respond to your medication safety needs during the pandemic. We will post responses to our website so others can benefit. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
