Today, Health Standards Organization (HSO) launched two public reviews; one on the Medication Management Standard, and another on the Medication Management for Community-Based Organizations Standard. The public reviews are open from April 16 to June 15, 2018.

These standards have been developed by an HSO’s Technical Committee on Medication Management, which is made up of clinicians, experts, policy-makers, patients and their families.

Both standards will work to encourage safer practice and safer service delivery in medication management. They have been developed to better reflect current issues affecting patient safety involving medications.

HSO is asking those who have an interest in the standards or those who have used services related to the standards to provide their views on the proposed changes. Both standards are evidence-based. They have been developed through a rigorous Technical Committee process and will be applied globally.
