Start of a new HALMED’s campaign on promoting the importance of package leaflet reading and reporting of ADRs
The Agency for Medicinal Products and Medical Devices (HALMED) has started a public education campaign aimed at promoting the importance of package leaflet reading and ADR reporting among patients and end consumers. The aim of the campaign is to inform citizens that, alongside the information provided by a qualified healthcare professional, additional information may be obtained through package leaflet reading and to motivate them to get actively involved in the medication and monitoring of safe use of medicines by reporting ADRs. This approach will further contribute to the improvement of the safe use of medicines and more efficient health care for patients and overall public health.
The campaign will intensively be carried out at the national level from the beginning of September to the end of October this year through billboard, press ads, radio spots, on-line banners, posters in doctors’ waiting rooms and information leaflets on ADRs reporting that will be available in pharmacies throughout the country.
