An annual tradition at the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy, the Feurt symposium is sponsored by the Seldon D. Feurt Endowment, which celebrates a previous dean, Dr. Seldon Feurt. Members of the Tennessee Board of Pharmacy and Tennessee Pharmacists Association, in cooperation with the University, started the Seldon D. Feurt Memorial Fund to honor Dr. Feurt and provide private funding for scholarships, fellowships, research grants, and other needs of the College.
This year’s symposium focus is patient safety. The FDA receives more than 100,000 reports related to medication errors annually, and an estimated 7000 to 9000 deaths each year are attributed to these errors. Medication errors can occur at any point in the complex medication-use process and continue to occur despite prevention strategies. To err is human. Creating a culture of patient safety involves advocating for patients, learning from past errors, and identifying practices professionals can employ to prevent and mitigate errors.
