Medication Safety Workshop

Thursdy, September 21, 2017

Registration: 8:30 AM Program: 9:00 – 4:00 PM

The Falls Event Center

21 Front Street, Manchester, NH

Cost:  $30 **

The Foundation for Healthy Communities has planned this Adverse Drug Event Workshop to be an interactive, inspiring and informational session to foster learning and discussion of the many ways to reduce patient harm associated with medication therapy involving anti-diabetics, anti-coagulants and opioids.  Participants will learn not only techniques for uncovering and measuring the real incidence of patient harm from these medications but also  successfully implemented interventions that have made a difference for patients.

Additionally, we will focus on engaging physicians, pharmacists, pharmacy students, patients and their families as essential allies in eliminating harm from these critically important medications.


Keynote Speaker:  Steven Tremain, MD


Dr. Tremain is the former Chief Medical Officer and Chief Medical Information Officer at Contra Costa Regional Medical Center in Martinez, California.  In this role, he served as executive sponsor for improvement teams that were awarded mentor status by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement in the areas of medication reconciliation, rapid response teams and ventilator associated pneumonia.  His recent work as Physician Advisor with Cynosure Health has focused on supporting more than 30 Hospital Engagement Networks working with the American Hospital Association Health Research and Educational Trust (HRET) on the Partnership for Patients.  Dr. Tremain is the national clinical lead for HRET initiatives to reduce adverse drug events, C. difficile infections and VTEs. 

His inspirational and informative presentations nationwide have addressed not only the reduction of adverse drug events, CDIs and VTEs but also the promotion of a culture of safety, highly reliable healthcare processes, improving patient safety through standard work, human factors and checklists. 

Dr. Tremain is board certified in Family Medicine and is a Certified Physician Executive.  He earned his MD degree for the UCLA School of Medicine.
