CHA Medication Safety Face to Face Insight Forum 2020


CHA's Medication Safety Special Interest Group has been meeting face to face once a year for more than 15 years. This highly expert group of paediatric pharmacists, nurses and physicians generously share their knowledge and expertise with one another, with the collective aim of reducing harms to children in regards to prescribing, dispensing, administration and much more.
