SummaryMedication errors are a major public health burden and error prevention is a shared responsibility between patients, healthcare professionals, regulators and pharmaceutical industry at all levels of healthcare delivery. This information day is an opportunity for pharmaceutical industry and regulatory agencies to exchange experience on the new European Union (EU) good practice guide on medication errors published by the European regulatory network in 2015. The objective is to raise awareness of EU pharmacovigilance obligations for medication errors and to discuss operational aspects and good practice recommendations with regard to medication error reporting, evaluation and prevention, with insight into the current regulatory thinking on how to tackle medication errors within health care delivery systems for the benefit of patient safety.
