Designing and evaluating interventions to reduce medication errors: Challenges and opportunities

Lecture held by professor Bryony Dean Franklin, Professor of Medication Safety, UCL School of Pharmacy

Professor Bryony Dean Franklin has been involved with medication safety research for nearly twenty years, and has published widely on methods for studying errors, and the frequency and causes of prescribing, dispensing and medication administration errors. She has a particular research interest in the evaluation of various technologies designed to reduce errors. In this lecture Professor Franklin will highlight the research in this area and focus on evidence based approaches to improving medication safety in various clinical settings. 

Her current posts combine research, education and training, and clinical practice as a hospital pharmacist.  Professor Franklin is Director of the Centre for Medication Safety and Service Quality (CMSSQ), a joint research unit between Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, where she is also Executive Lead Pharmacist for Research.  Professor Franklin is also visiting Professor at Imperial College, associate editor for the journal BMJ Quality and Safety, and on the editorial board for BMC Safety in Health.
