|dc.description.abstract||A multidisciplinary workshop was held in order to identify strategies likely to produce a reduction in adverse drug events, by targeting hospital systems involved in drug prescribing, dispensing and administration. Strategies identified at the workshop included: (i) improving the education and practice development of medical and nursing staff, concerning drug therapy and safe prescribing principles; (ii) introducing and using information technology and electronic prescribing processes; (iii) implementing the Australian Pharmaceutical Advisory Council (APAC) national guidelines to achieve the continuum of quality use of medicines between hospitals and the community; (iv) enhancing the importance of medication history taking as a routine part of the admission process; (v) instituting individual patient supply as the standard method of drug distribution in hospitals; and (vi) stimulating the hospital-based clinical pharmacy workforce.||-|
