World Smart Medication Day: Clinical Pharmacology in the Era of Pandemics
IUPHAR is proud to announce the second annual World Smart Medication Day on the 5th May 2022 to foster clinical pharmacology development and raise awareness of the safer and more effective use of drugs.
Unsafe medication practices and medication errors are a leading cause of injury and avoidable harm in healthcare systems worldwide. Clinical Pharmacology is a key discipline for managing these drug-related problems.
This day provides the opportunity to highlight key messages on drug development, clinical drug research, warnings on self-medication and stopping medicines, medication errors, drug interactions and adverse drug reactions, pharmacovigilance, off label/compassionate drug use, supply management, misleading claims and fraud.
