This module is an introduction to error reduction and prevention strategies by making the abnormal conditions apparent. Detecting risks before any harm occurs to residents is essential to improving medication safety.  

The module demonstrates the benefits of error-detection strategies through two simple online activities. 

Error reduction by making abnormal conditions obvious is one of the tools of a Quality Improvement system in healthcare, industry, hospitality, and in many other sectors, and this module is one of the Quality Improvement modules offered by ISMP Canada.
