Promoting Patient Safety – Medications without Harm

Kampala, 15-18 May 2018, EPN Forum 2018. "We are pleased to announce that the EPN Forum 2018 will be hosted by the Joint Medical Stores (JMS) in Kampala, Uganda from 15 to 18 May 2018. The biennial EPN Forum is an opportunity for EPN members to meet in one place, learn, share knowledge, exchange experiences and best practices from their home countries. Members also develop ideas and make critical decisions in relation to the activities of the Network with experts, friends and partners.

The theme for the EPN Forum 2018 is ‘Promoting Patient Safety – Medication without Harm’. The Forum taps into the third WHO Global Patient Safety Challenge. The goal of the challenge is to propose solutions that address the many obstacles the world faces to ensure the safety of medication practices. Medication harm to patients is an ongoing problem in many countries and not unique to lower and middle income countries (LMICs). Faith-based health facilities should take up the challenge to improve their patient’s safety through learning and knowledge sharing. The first step is attending the EPN Forum 2018."
