Adverse drug reaction (ADR) is a term used to describe harm that can be caused by using medication at the correct dosage. An ADR can occur after a single dose or prolonged use of medication. Adverse events occur commonly, and the Pharmacist is well placed to intervene and assist the patient by performing MURs.
This module is composed of 11 assessment questions based on typical clinical scenarios associated with adverse effects of common drugs. Complete the questions and reflect on your performance and the scenarios.
Once you complete the module - and achieve the minimum pass rate of 60% - you'll be awarded with a downloadable 1 hour CPD Certificate, which you can print or upload to your CPD Portfolio.
On successful completion of this module, you will have an improved understanding of:
Potential adverse events associated with commonly used drugs
When to refer to primary/secondary care
Potential ADRs when performing MURs
