Advocacy

Works to highlight and validate consumer experiences and heighten consumer involvement in adverse drug reaction reporting. Aims to facilitate networking among individual patients/consumers and advocacy groups who share our concerns about the lack of adequate post-market monitoring by the pharmaceutical industry and Health Canada. Also aims to raise public awareness about the role of consumers/patients in reporting their own adverse drug reactions - or those experienced by their children, a spouse, a brother or sister, or a parent. Teaches people how to report an ADR, how to encourage others to report, and what role ADR reporting has played or can play to help ensure the medicine we take is right for us.
