The Irish Medication Safety Network (IMSN) convened a working group to develop medication incident reporting guidelines. The IMSN guidelines were drafted using the framework developed by the WHO and by building on the systems already in place in Irish hospitals. These guidelines include guidance for completing a Medication Incident Report and descriptions of incident categories, a sample Medication Incident Report (MIR) template, and general recommendations to assist a hospital that intends to update its current MIR form or to implement a new MIR form.

In May 2014 we published updated and revised versions of these documents which can be found at these links:
