What is Pharmacovigilance?
Is the science of collecting, monitoring, investigating and evaluating information about the effects of medication, biological products and medicine plants, aiming to identify information on new adverse reactions, to know their frequency and to prevent damage to patients.
What is an Adverse Drug Reaction?
It is a response to a drug that is harmful and unintended that occurs with the doses normally used in humans.
What information is required to report an Adverse Event?
The initial report is very important, and allows us to act immediately.
With just four basic data elements you can make a report:
- Informant Identification.
- Patient Identification.
- Adverse event.
Even if this basic information is not complete, you can still make your report.
If you want to report an unexpected adverse reaction that occurred to someone treated with an ASOFARMA product, please write us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
