Early Warning System Communications

Prescriber Update 34(3):26
September 2013

The Trans-Tasman early warning system provides information on safety concerns for medicines and medical devices.

A monitoring communication provides information on newly identified potential safety concerns. These concerns have not been fully investigated.

An alert communication is issued once a review of the safety concern is complete. Alerts contain more information on the safety concern and provide specific advice on actions that may need to be taken by healthcare professionals and consumers. Early warning system communications issued in the last quarter can be found on page 29.
