Safe Prescribing app

Medication errors occur commonly in Australian hospitals and around the world [ANZHP 2009; 6: 18, IJQHC 2003; 15: i49; WHO 2003].

Many factors contribute to these errors, including lack of knowledge [MJA 2008; 188: 276].

The Westmead Hospital Pharmacy, Safe Use of Medicines Committee and Department of Anaesthesia have produced a free iOS app to provide simple, practical information about three high-risk medication classes, for use by prescribers within the hospital. It is in the process of submission to the Apple App Store.
