Dispensing errors occur in the process of dispensing a prescription medicine to a patient at the pharmacy. Since 1978 it has been mandatory to keep records of dispensing errors at Swedish pharmacies. A computerized quality system for recording and systematically analyzing errors was introduced in 2004.
In Sweden,.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
