Join the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) for a 15 minute power up session to gain a greater understanding of the Yellow Card Scheme for collecting and monitoring information on suspected safety concerns or incidents involving medicines and medical devices.
The Yellow Card Scheme is the UK system for collecting and monitoring information on suspected safety concerns or incidents involving medicines and medical devices. The Scheme relies on reporting from patients and healthcare professionals who suspect a link between a patients’ symptoms, or an incident, and a medicinal product.
To make reporting as simple as possible we have worked with EMIS Health to launch an integrated Yellow Card reporting form directly into EMIS Web to make it quick for healthcare professionals to report suspicions. This integration was launched earlier this year to the whole of England with plans to extend this across the whole UK.
Join this session to learn more about the work that we do and how you can contribute to the monitoring of medicine and medical device safety.
