Reporting an adverse reaction
Spontaneous reports of suspected adverse reactions (ADRs) are an important source of information for the pharmacovigilance activities, as they allow to detect potential safety signals associated with the use of the medicines available on the national territory.
The reporting form for healthcare professionals is a simple and practical tool to report adverse events relating to any drug. Reports are entered into the RNF allowing the instant monitoring of adverse reactions.
Pharmacovigilance involves the whole community at different levels: patients, prescribers, healthcare professionals, pharmaceutical Companies, scientific and medical institutions and Academia, and the report on the occurred ADRs can be provided not only by the healthcare professionals, but also by citizens through the completion of the proper citizen’s reporting form.
