Patient Safety Learning Opportunity

Over the last few decades, through safety protocols that involve practitioner testing of proposed brand names, progress has been made to bring safety to the drug naming process. Along with technological improvements like electronic prescribing and bar code scanning, success has also been realized with reducing the potential for drug name-related errors. Still, several challenges remain.

This program is free and will take participants down the naming pathway; the road to development of a new drug brand name. Not widely known by most health care providers, participants will hear first-hand from several experts including a global pharmaceutical company, medication safety company, and the Food and Drug Administration, about the role each plays in the drug name development process.
