The Medication Safety Research Network of Indiana (Rx-SafeNet) is a state-wide community pharmacy practice-based research network (PBRN) administered by the Purdue University College of Pharmacy. Rx-SafeNet is registered as an Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Affiliate PBRN.
Mission: To improve medication safety and advance community pharmacy practice in Indiana through the conduct and dissemination of collaborative, patient-centered, practice-based research.
Rx-SafeNet is a collaborative network of community pharmacies throughout the state of Indiana that works to identify project ideas for the improvement of medication safety and development of community pharmacy best practices. Currently, there are 180 pharmacy locations in the Network. The network serves as a collaboration platform for community pharmacies and researchers with a shared interest in improving medication safety and advancing community pharmacy in Indiana. Our ultimate goal is to integrate project findings from the data we gather and analyze into daily pharmacy practice to enhance medication safety and improve patient outcomes.
We are currently inviting community pharmacies to become a part of Rx-SafeNet. Learn more about how to join.
