Pharmacovigilance

Reporting side effects

Pharmacovigilance has been defined by the World Health Organization as "science and activities related to discovery, evaluation, understanding and prevention of drug-related adverse events or any other drug-related problem".

WHAT IS AN ADVERSE EVENT

Any unfavorable and unwanted event that occurs in a patient who has been given a medicinal product.

HOW TO REPORT ADVERSE EVENTS

Reporting adverse events of medicinal products is important because it allows continuous monitoring of their benefit / risk balance. Healthcare personnel are required to report any adverse events associated with the use of medicinal products at the National Health Authority.
