Use of CDS tools in pediatrics to be enshrined in law


A few days ago, the Swiss National Council unanimously voted in favour of legislating the use of "Clinical Decision Support" tools in pediatric clinics and in public pharmacies. This follows last year's recommendation by the Federal Council and the Council of States to approve the motion of Councillor Stöckli. Politicians are thus sending a clear signal and setting the target: Drug safety for children must be increased in Switzerland.
