Pharmacy OneSource Launches SPEAK Initiative to Promote Medication Safety Awareness
Date:12/2/2008

SPEAK to collect and disseminate pharmacy experience and knowledge.

Bellevue, Wash. (PRWEB) December 2, 2008 -- Pharmacy OneSource, Inc. today announced the launch of a new initiative to focus public and industry attention on medication safety awareness. The official kick-off of SPEAK will occur during the American Society of Health-system Pharmacists (ASHP) 2008 Midyear Clinical Meeting, to be held December 7-11 in Orlando, Florida.

"SPEAK" stands for "Sharing Pharmacy Experience and Knowledge." Healthcare professionals can visit the official website, speak.rph.com, and submit actions they or their organizations have taken that successfully prevented or reduced the risk of medication errors. These error reduction actions will be posted at speak.rph.com and shared with Pharmacy OneSource, which also may present them in future newsletters.

At the ASHP 2008 Midyear Clinical Meeting, attendees visiting the Pharmacy OneSource booth will receive a free custom-designed SPEAK medication safety awareness pin. For each pin distributed, Pharmacy OneSource will donate one dollar to the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP).

"It is vitally important to share the actions that the healthcare community is implementing to help prevent medication errors," says Allen Vaida, PharmD, FASHP, Executive Vice President of ISMP. "SPEAK will give healthcare professionals a chance to highlight how they have incorporated error reduction recommendations from ISMP to prevent errors and improve medication use processes."

"Pharmacy OneSource is passionately committed to enabling swift and safe healthcare worldwide," said Keith Streckenbach, Chief Strategy Officer of Pharmacy OneSource. "We hold the belief that shared experience is one of the most effective ways to rapidly and widely improve medication safety, which is why we are supporting SPEAK and ISMP."
