Physicians & Pharmacists

The Institute of Medicine Report To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System (National Academy Press, 2000) outlines the significant costs of preventable medical errors. Physicians and pharmacists play central roles in the team effort to use medications wisely. In this section, the University of Arizona CERT provides tools to assist with prescribing and dispensing of medications. We also provide links to other useful sites that give additional information on therapeutics. The goal of these efforts is to provide access to information that will help improve patient safety.
