Expert Committee: Safe Medication Use Expert Committee
In accordance with the 2005–2010 Rules and Procedures of the Council of Experts, the Safe Medication Use Expert Committee intends to revise the General Chapter <1066> Physical Environments that Promote Safe Medication Use. The revisions to this General Chapter will be conveyed through a Revision Bulletin that will be posted on USP’s website May 28, 2010, with an official date of October 1, 2010. The Expert Committee is using the Revision Bulletin pathway because the general chapter printed in USP 33 Reissue did not reflect the final version approved by the Expert Committee.
The revised USP General Chapter <1066> Physical Environments that Promote Safe Medication Use is available at the link below and will be incorporated into USP 34–NF 29.
Should you have any questions, please contact Shawn C. Becker, M.S., R.N., Director, Healthcare Quality Standards and Liaison to the Safe Medication Use Expert Committee (301-816-8216 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
