RMI Pharmacy Department Conducts Successful Patient Safety Workshop

RMI's Pharmacy Department, in collaboration with PharmEvo Private Limited, held a successful Patient Safety Workshop titled "Learning from Errors" on Thursday, September 14, 2023. The workshop was led by Dr. Umaimah Muzammil, General Manager of PharmEvo, who shared her expertise to enhance participants' understanding of patient safety.

The workshop brought together 30 healthcare professionals from diverse fields, including pharmacists, nurses, doctors, and administrators. The goal of the workshop was to help participants understand the causes of medication errors, implement safety measures, and identify local policies for enhanced patient care, aligned with World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines.

The workshop was a great success, and it is a testament to the dedication and commitment of the RMI Pharmacy Department and PharmEvo. The participants were very engaged and asked many thoughtful questions. They also expressed their appreciation for the opportunity to learn more about patient safety. The participants now have a better understanding of the risks associated with medication errors and the steps that can be taken to prevent them. They are also better equipped to identify and report errors when they do occur.

RMI is committed to providing safe and quality care to its patients. This workshop is just one example of many initiatives that the hospital is taking to improve patient safety. We are grateful to Dr. Umaimah Muzammil and PharmEvo for their partnership in making this workshop a success.
