MedSafetyWeek – 6 to 12 November 2023 – Who can report?

This week is #MedSafetyWeek! The goal this year is to get patients and healthcare professionals to report suspected side effects of medicines. Whether you’re a patient, pharmacist, doctor, nurse, or other healthcare professional, you can help make medicines safer by reporting side effects to CARM (Centre for Adverse Reactions Monitoring) at https://pophealth.my.site.com/carmreportnz/s/. Providing high-quality patient information is another avenue to enhance medicine safety – check out My Medicines https://www.mymedicines.nz/cdhb for plain language, evidence-based patient information leaflets.
