Report an Adverse Event
Adverse events are side effects, near misses and harmful occurrences associated with the use of a medicine, vaccine or medical device. Adverse events present a significant concern for patients when it comes to medication adherence. Rx Connect Specialty Pharmacist(s) counsels each and every patient on the potential side effects, the likelihood of their occurrence and the action to take if they do occur. When a medicine becomes available in Canada, the information about its safety and efficacy is usually available only from clinical trials. Post-market monitoring of the safety of medicines and vaccines contributes to a better understanding of their possible adverse effects, when they are used outside the controlled conditions of clinical trials. Rx Connect Specialty Pharmacy has developed a secure portal for all patients to report adverse events relative to medications and devices. The data collected is used to analyze and identify previously unrecognized safety problems, an increased frequency or severity of adverse events, or patient groups that are particularly sensitive to adverse events.CLICK TO REPORT
