POSSUM project on the go

13 May 2014

We've begun another great tablet-based project in the health and medical research space. POSSUM stands for Precise Observational System for the Safe Use of Medications.

The POSSUM study aims to:

  • adapt and test an observational method for measuring medication administration errors suitable for use in Australian hospitals.
  • compare the type, rates and severity of medication administration error rates before and after various interventions.
  • assess whether interruptions and multi tasking impact on medication administration errors rates.

(POSSUM) is being developed for the Centre for Health Systems and Safety Research, Faculty of Medicine, UNSW.
