TGA survey to help analyse adverse events
The Therapeutic Goods Administration is undertaking an online survey to seek information about health professionals’ experiences and attitudes towards key issues related to medicines and their use.
It is particularly concerned about those issues related to identifying, managing and reporting adverse events.
Analysis of adverse event reports is an important way the TGA monitors the safety of medicines and vaccines used in Australia.
TGA management notes that health professionals play an important role in ensuring the safe use of medicine, particularly by reporting adverse events they see in clinical practice for new medicines.
It is encouraging as many doctors and other health professionals as possible to participate in the survey.
Responses will help the TGA improve the way it collects and uses adverse event reports.
All responses are anonymous and this survey does not collect any personally identifying information.
The survey is available on this link (https://healthau.au1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_9Ljd59b1DWIhkxv&Q_JFE=0) and is estimated to take about 10 minutes to complete.
