This conference will focus on reducing medication errors and improving patient care with a focus on a zero tolerance approach. The day will begin with national developments in reducing medication errors, and harm from medication errors including the implementation of the national medication safety thermometer and the importance of patient involvement in reducing medication errors.

A focus area of the conference is on developing a zero tolerance approach to medication errors - a strategy that has worked effectively for reducing infection rates, and pressure ulcer rates across the NHS. This area of the programme will look at zero tolerance prescribing, learning from medication error near misses and collaborating to improve the quality of junior doctor prescribing.
