About the Canadian Medication Incident Reporting and Prevention System (CMIRPS)


Bookmark and Share

ISMP Canada, the Canadian Institute for Health Information and Health Canada worked closely to develop the Canadian Medication Incident Reporting and Prevention System (CMIRPS). These parties are working with the Canadian Patient Safety Institute to coordinate CMIRPS with other patient safety initiatives.

CMIRPS is a voluntary, confidential program that collects, analyzes, and distributes information on medication incidents. The knowledge gained through analyzing reports submitted to CMIRPS is used to make medication use safer.

Sharing information and learning from medication incidents helps to improve patient safety and quality of care across Canada. Until recently, CMIRPS collected information mainly from individual healthcare practitioners and hospitals. SafeMedicationUse.ca provides a convenient way for consumers to report medication incidents and to get information about using medication safely.
