Abstract: A poster presentation regarding risk assessment of prescribing errors on medical prescriptions in Malta and Germany. Introduction: The medication use process consists of four main stages, namely, the diagnosis, prescribing, dispensing and patient adherence. Medication errors can occur at any of these stages. Errors on a medical practitioner’s prescription may lead to erroneous dispensing by the pharmacist. A risk assessment of errors on medical prescriptions in Malta and Germany was undertaken. Aims: The study developed a comparative research method with the aim of 1) identifying and analysing the current status of processes that may lead to prescribing errors and, 2) assessing the risk of prescribing errors from a medical practitioner perspective.
