Read Frequently Asked Questions

Medication errors can occur for many reasons at the time of prescribing, dispensing, storing, preparation or administration of a medicine. It is estimated that among hospitalized patients 18.7% to 56% of adverse events are caused by medication errors. This training program will analyze the European Medicines Agency’s (EMA) recently published good practice guide on medication errors to improve the reporting, evaluation and prevention of medication errors by regulatory authorities and pharmaceutical industry throughout the EU.

Why Should You Attend:

In the European Union (EU), national competent authorities and EMA play a key role in identifying and reducing the risk of medication errors before and after the authorization of a medicine. For all medicines the presentation, labelling and leaflet are designed to prevent medication errors. However, in some cases, additional measures are needed to ensure that the medicine is used correctly, for example by introducing educational programs for healthcare professionals and patients. EMA will now systematically communicate on any additional measure decided upon at EU level to prevent medication errors. The new webpage will offer a reference point to patients and healthcare professionals for key advice on how to prevent medication errors in order to ensure the safe use of medicines.

This webinar will assist attendees in understanding the shift caused by the new requirements and in evaluating the possible impact on pharmacovigilance/signal detection procedures and the need for corrective actions.
