On 5 December, we held an event at the RCPCH with patients and families which focused on improving medication safety. We heard from fantastic speakers, including parent champions from WellChild and Mother’s Instinct who talked about the challenges families face in ensuring medication safety, both at home and in healthcare settings. Our keynote speaker, Kath Evans, discussed ways to make partnerships with patients and families in medicines safety ‘always’ events.
