The Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP)

The Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) is a nonprofit organization solely devoted to preventing medication errors. ISMP is known and respected as the gold standard for medication safety information. ISMP’s advocacy work alone has resulted in numerous necessary changes in clinical practice, public policy, and drug labeling and packaging. Throughout its 30-year history, ISMP has helped make a difference in the lives of millions of patients and the healthcare professionals who care for them.
ISMP publishes the Long-Term Care Advise-ERR, a medication safety newsletter designed specifically to meet the needs of administrators, nursing directors, and nurses who transcribe medication orders, administer medications, monitor the effects of medications on residents, and/or supervise those who carry out these important tasks. The newsletter is available free of charge to employees of long term care facilities. Free CEUs are also available for nurses twice a year.
