The PSIP project (Patient Safety through intelligent procedures in medication), which is also funded under the patient safety priority of the EC, focuses on the systematic production of epidemiological knowledge on ADE and to ameliorate the entire medication cycle in hospitals. The workshop 'Human Factors and IT Tools for Patient Medication Safety' will offer the opportunity to compare ongoing research actions, at international and European level by the EC, focused on patient safety. Its objective is to present methods, results and to discuss the following topics: Identification of ADE and medication errors in hospital settings; the role of human and organisational factors on ADE and medication errors, and the ICT solutions which are available to prevent or correct ADEs and medications errors. On behalf of the DebugIT consortium, Dr. Karl Stroetmann will present the intermediate results of the DebugIT project with regard to its clinical architecture and data-integration approach. The conference proceedings will be published by IOS Press.
