Making medicines and medical devices safer

E-learning modules

Access e-learning modules about the importance of reporting suspected adverse drug reactions, commonly referred to as side effects

E-learning module for doctors

We have created a new free e-learning module for doctors to learn about the importance of reporting suspected adverse drug reactions (ADRs).

The European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME), part of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS), has given the module the highest order of accreditation. Doctors are awarded 1 EACCME credit (1 hour CPD) on completion of the 45 minute ADR e-learning module.

Adverse Drug Reactions: reporting makes medicines safer

E-learning modules for pharmacists

The Centre for Postgraduate Pharmacy Education (CPPE) has developed a series of 3 e-learning programmes with the Wales Centre for Pharmacy Professional Education and MHRA. The programme has been endorsed by the Drug Safety Research Unit.

The e-learning modules should help pharmacists understand how to identify, report and prevent ADRS.
