Drug Information Updates is a comprehensive portal for the latest in drug news and medication information. In Drug News, we share the most up-to-date drug approvals and labeling changes, as well as expanded indications, recalls, and approvals of generic formulations. We stay on top of drug updates from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and continually review news from the industry reported by Facts & Comparisons® and pharmaceutical companies.
In Medication Errors, our goal is to let you know what errors are being reported to the Institute for Safe Medication Practices and provide key recommendations to help avoid these errors. By sharing information, we can all work to improve our practice and improve patient safety.
