Press release -

The skills of offering the right medical treatment have to be developed by medical professionals and mistakes are not always noted systematically.

A new guide issued by the MSAH on safe medical treatment aims to give social and healthcare units a practical tool for use in planning medical treatment.

The guide, which is in Finnish and Swedish, is intended to help standardise the principles of pharmacotherapy, clarify the division of responsibility and define minimum standards for all units that provide medical treatment.
