Adverse Drug Reactions - Part II

Course Number: 537


In considering ADRs in the differential diagnosis of a patient’s problem, the practitioner must acknowledge that there are no “absolutely safe” medications and be familiar with relevant literature about ADRs. It is equally important to recognize that some ADRs occur sporadically and detection based on clinical experience or reports in the literature are lacking. Improved reporting of ADRs can save lives, reduce morbidity, and decrease the cost of healthcare.
