MEDHF AT DIA CMC WORKSHOP 2018
We will present at the DIA CMC Workshop 2018 on Wednesday, 20. June 2018 in the afternoon session 4B: Medical Errors Due to Product Design and Development.
The session will include talks on different perspectives on medication errors. The speakers are:
- Martin Hug, PhD (Professor, Director of Pharmacy, University Medical Center Freiburg)
- Diana van Riet-Nales, PharmD, PhD (Senior Assessor; Member of EMA Quality Working Party, Medicines Evaluation Board (MEB), Netherlands)
- Isabel Menz (Managing Director Germany, medHF)
Following the talks, Sven Stegemann, PhD will lead a panel discussion on the subject.
Medication errors may result in patient harm or death. Risk is known to increase when the product design is insufficiently tailored to patient needs e.g. children, (older) patients. Demographic changes strengthen the importance to identify and mitigate risk in science, regulation and drug development.
