Workbook

The Medication Safety Self Assessment® for Australian Hospitals (2015) workbook provides the information required to begin assessing your hospital’s medication safety systems. The workbook can be downloaded in full or in part below.

Online Database

An online database is available to assist users with the recording and analysis of their hospital’s self-assessment results. This database allows hospitals to:
  • Enter and retain a record of your hospital’s scores online.
  • Display results in graphical form to easily identify areas for improvement.
  • Track progress over time.
  • Automatically calculate weighted aggregate scores for each key element and core characteristic.
  • Compare themselves against other hospitals (in a de-identified way) according to demographic variables selected.
