Why does it matter?
Medicines are developed to be as safe and effective as possible, but they can still cause
side effects. It is important for people to report adverse effects to medicines as this
information can be used to identify previously unknown issues with those medicines.
Adverse effects sometimes stop patients from completing their treatment, which can
lead to even more serious problems. Reporting adverse effects encourages a dialogue
between patients and healthcare professionals and helps professionals to identify and
investigate unknown or poorly described adverse effects.
The Med Safety app has been developed as part of the WEB-RADR project. WEB-RADR is supported by the Innovative Medicines Initiative Joint Undertaking (IMI JU) under grant agreement n° 115632, resources of which are composed of financial contribution from the
European Union's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) and EFPIA companies’ in kind contribution.
