FDA and the Institute for Safe Medication Practices launch campaign to reduce medical errors

The campaign, a joint effort between the FDA and the ISMP (a nonprofit organization), will target the reduction of errors due to unclear medical abbreviations (including symbols, dosage shorthand).

There's no mention of plans for evaluating its success or the degree of dissemination of the educational materials; it will be interesting to see what types of outcomes are noted in updates to the project description.
