5 Moments for Medication Safety: Starting, Taking, Adding, Reviewing, Stopping

The WHO Global Patient Safety Challenge: Medication without Harm was formally launched in 2017 and continues to strive toward the goal of reducing and eliminating medication related harm. 

Doctors, pharmaceutical companies, pharmacies, patients, and caregivers all work together to be more aware and take action to eliminate risk factors.  More ideas and information are available on the WHO website: https://www.who.int/initiatives/medication-without-harm.
