ADR tips of the month

The “ADR Tip of the Month” is an educational tool on adverse drug reaction topics that is sent to participants on a monthly basis to build support and awareness of the Adverse Drug Reaction study, facilitating case ascertainment, and impacting new information relating to the study or broader ADR surveillance topics.

Health Canada may use this format to complement the ADR study by providing relevant, timely drug information.
