Houston Medication Safety Symposium

Friday, April 13, 2018

8:30 am - 3:30 pm

Want to talk about healthcare medication-related morbidity and mortality? It is a significant health concern due to unsafe medication use practices, which includes the prescribing of inappropriate medications to patients’ misuse of prescribed medications. As reducing medication errors and improving medication safety are national priorities, the Houston Medication Safety Symposium will discuss the latest advances in medication safety in the elderly and opioid prescribing and misuse to improve the quality of pharmaceutical care. In addition to plenary session presentations by nationally recognized experts in medication safety, the symposium will feature podium and poster presentations, continuing education credit for practicing physicians, nurses and dentists, and opportunities for networking with fellow health care professionals and researchers.
