Education/training/modules related to medicines and/or medication safety in NSW
21 October 2021
NSW TAG created this spreadsheet for members’ use after requesting information from My Health Learning (MHL) for a list of modules mapped to NSQHS Standard 4 and which modules were mandatory. NSW TAG also scanned all MHL modules to identify any other modules that had medicines related information but were not mapped to Std 4. The data is current as at 10th June 2021.
This Excel spreadsheet is designed for sites to use locally. The beginning of the spreadsheet has been left blank so that sites can add any relevant local in-house training to assist the provision of evidence of training for accreditation.

Medication Safety Self Assessment
These self assessments are risk assessment tools specifically designed to help hospitals take a proactive and system-based approach to medication safety.
They will assist hospitals in meeting their obligations for accreditation and can drive change by identifying, and measuring, areas for improvement. The tools allow self assessment of the medication safety practices within a hospital, identifcation of improvement opportunities and comparison with the aggregate experience of demographically similar hospitals.
