The International Medication Safety Network (IMSN) is pleased to launch an international error reporting portal for the international healthcare community, to learn from these experiences and be in position to prevent future errors and possible patient harm.
IMSN encourages sharing incidents of medication errors, near misses and hazardous conditions for global learning and action to reduce the risk of patient harm and death. Some jurisdictions also have in-country reporting systems to aggregate and learn from this information nationally. IMSN strongly encourages reporters to continue reporting to the existing local or national reporting and learning systems.
This portal will enable any healthcare provider worldwide, including physicians, pharmacists, nurses, and other healthcare workers including those in the regulatory and the medical products industry to share their report for international review. Where applicable, reports will be investigated and reported on the IMSN website by the International Medication Safety Management Fellows at the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) in the United States under the supervision of medication safety expert members of the IMSN. The content of your report will be handled confidentially. Your name and location will never be shared in public reports.
Upon submission of the form below, a confirmation of receipt will be sent. ISMP Fellows may contact you for additional context of your report following submission. The information provided will always remain confidential and may be used in collaboration with international regulators and other patient safety organizations to improve worldwide patient safety. In addition, important information about reported incidents may appear on this website for learning purposes.
Please include your full name, email address, and country to process the report. We encourage you to attach any photos or documents that help to describe the event. Thank you.
