About 250 000 Australians are hospitalised every year for medicine-related reasons, including adverse drug reactions. Over half of these hospitalisations are thought to be preventable (DHA 2019).

Ensuring the safe use of medicines is a crucial component of patient safety. Therefore, any known or new adverse drug reactions (ADRs) should always be documented, monitored and communicated appropriately to prevent re-exposure (SA DoH 2018).

Although some ADRs are unpredictable, many can be avoided (SA DoH 2018).

What are Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs)?

ADRs are unwanted or harmful reactions to medicines that were taken under normal conditions of use. These reactions are related to the medicines themselves rather than other factors (PEP n.d.).
