Formatted Abstract/Summary
Background: A workshop on medication systems and processes for doctors new to Queensland public hospitals was delivered by multidisciplinary clinicians to enhance skills and awareness of safe prescribing practices.

Aims: To ascertain whether tailoring delivery of a workshop based on results of certainty based assessment (CBA) has any impact on confidence levels in safe prescribing.

Conclusion: CBA is useful in gaining insight to participants’ knowledge and application. Using this information during the workshop to tailor discussions had a favourable effect on participant learning outcomes.
