On Wednesday, March 13th, MEPSHP hosted their meeting at Hamilton Kitchen and Bar in Allentown, PA. We started with a non-branded promotional presentation on Individualizing Factor Therapy by Takeda Pharmaceutical Company. The speaker, April Morris, did a wonderful job in discussing how to individualize factor therapy in patients that have hemophilia. Our promotional presentation was followed by our educational speaker, Dr. Barbrakaryne N. Nchinda Fobi. Barbrakaryne is an ISMP International Medication Safety Management Fellow working under Dr. Christina Michalek. We learned about how to improve medication safety on a global scale, and how the way drugs are labeled and packaged can contribute to medication error. We also learned how ISMP is working both nationally and globally on standard practices to prevent medication error. The educational CE was very informative, and I am exciting about future presentations from ISMP.



Stay tuned for a possible meeting in April, and the Annual Night of the Residents Meeting in May. Looking forward to growing our membership in MEPSHP.
