Do you want to register for the Medication Safety Face to Face Meeting to be held in the Fig Room at the Zoo in Adelaide on the 29th & 29th July?
The CHA Medication Safety face to face meeting is a real opportunity to share information and experiences with supportive peers who are equally committed to medication safety for children.  Find further information here

On February 9, 2016 the Queensland Government - Medicines Regulation Division released a Patient Safety Alert regarding the use of IV Hypotonic Solution for paediatric patients.

NSW Health has produced some IV fluid standards to try to avert this sort of issue. The second version of the Standards for Paediatric IV Fluids were released fairly recently. Find a copy of these standards here

CHA is undertaking a major Collaborative involving hospitals around the country. Information on our CLABSI Collaborative has been released, access it here.

Child's Rights Videos

In 2014, NSW Kids and Families developed videos for children and young people to help them understand their rights when receiving healthcare in hospitals and other settings.  CHA thanks NSW Kids & Families for making these videos publicly available and encourages all Australian health services to share these videos with patients and their families
