Education to support mandatory serious ADR and MDI reporting (Vanessa's Law)
The Protecting Canadians from Unsafe Drugs Act, also known as Vanessa's Law, will strengthen Health Canada's ability to collect information on drugs and medical devices, and allow it to take quick and appropriate action when a serious health risk is identified.
The Law includes a requirement for mandatory reporting of serious adverse drug reactions (ADR) and medical device incidents (MDI) by hospitals.
An educational approach has been designed to provide core content (in 4 PowerPoint modules) about ADR and MDI reporting that can be used by healthcare leadership, healthcare providers, patients and families, and educators. The modules are intended to be building blocks (either as an individual slide or an entire module) for you to integrate into your own learning or to incorporate into orientation, continuing education and other education activities.
Thank you for taking the time to complete this questionnaire. The purpose of this questionnaire is to evaluate the usefulness and your intent to use the education content contained in the modules. Your responses will used to develop the final on-going evaluation and monitoring plan which will be delivered to Health Canada. All responses will be kept confidential.
