About

Reporting adverse events is important to ensure that therapeutic products including medicines, vaccines and medical devices continue to be safe. This ultimately ensures you have the most up to date safety information available when you are treating patients.

By reporting adverse events to the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) patient safety issues can be addressed. The TGA relies on all health professionals to be vigilant and share this important responsibility.

In partnership with the TGA, NPS MedicineWise has developed two modules to update prescribers and other health professionals on what constitutes a reportable adverse event with medicines, vaccines and medical devices, and what steps you need to take to report.

  • Module 2: Reporting adverse events with medical device
