Adverse Reaction and Medical Devise Problem Reporting: Health Canada

26-Jul-2017

Practitioners can report adverse reactions to medications and commercial products such as sunscreens as an example by visiting the Health Canada web page:

https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/drugs-health-products/medeffect-canada/adverse-reaction-reporting.html#a1

This will assist in evaluation and investigations into suspected events and its related products. A recent example has been the reported reactions to the Banana Boat sunscreen products, which is being investigated by Health Canada. Reporting such cases assists in compiling a composite information set.

Your assistance in this regard is appreciated.
