Titanic Adverse Drug Reactions: Effects on Clinicians, Pharma, and the FDA
Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) account for thousands of deaths a year. It is found that physicians are wary of reporting ADRs. Physicians have low rates of adverse drug reaction reporting, and as a result, patients are being treated with drugs that may be more harmful than is appreciated on the surface. A focus on ADRs and the effect of reporting or not reporting in a timely manner is essential to patient safety.
