FDA and the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) Work to Prevent Medication Errors

FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) has formalized a long standing relationship with the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP), a non-profit organization based in Horsham, Pa. ISMP‘s mission is to educate the health care community and consumers. Medication errors are preventable mistakes that can happen in labeling, packaging, prescribing, dispensing, and communications when the medication is ordered.
