Drug Safety Update - March 2015

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has published Drug Safety Update for March 2015 (PDF). This month there are two updates pertinent to primary care.

A new e-learning module for corticosteroids has been created that aims to help clinicians understand how to identify, manage and avoid the
important side effects of these valuable and widely prescribed medicines - vital knowledge for optimising the use of corticosteroids.

Readers are also encouraged to report misleading medicines advertisements. Reports can be made to the MHRA at advertising@mhra.gsi.gov.uk or Prescription Medicines Code of Practice Authority (PMCPA) at complaints@pmcpa.org.uk.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of this month's new guidance and implement any necessary changes to practice.
