Safety through reporting - share the responsibility

Safety through reporting

These interactive online learning modules have been designed to support health professionals to report adverse events associated with therapeutic products and contribute to the TGA’s ongoing safety monitoring activities.

Key features of this suite of learning include a detailed explanation of the importance of reporting adverse events in an increasingly active health system, how to build reporting into practice and what happens to reports once they are submitted to the TGA.

The modules have been designed to build on health professionals’ current knowledge and experience while promoting a deeper understanding of why patients and the TGA rely on health professionals to report adverse events.

This program was developed in partnership with the TGA.
