Please can you also help MHRA promote and encourage 13-18 year olds to complete a survey designed to improve information, awareness, and encourage the reporting of side effects to the Yellow Card scheme in the UK for children and young people? The survey is available here.
The work to improve information in children and young people is being taken forward by the MHRA, its five commissioned Yellow Card Centres, and with Dr Dan Hawcutt, Senior Lecturer Paediatric Pharmacology (Women’s and Children’s Health) and Consultant Paediatric Clinical Pharmacologist, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.
There is a lot of information and resources on the Yellow Card website campaigns and resources tabs which can help you encourage the reporting of suspected side effects in general, including some videos and animations for improving reporting in children.
