About the Health Product InfoWatch
The goal of the Health Product InfoWatch is to raise awareness and to provide clinically relevant information to healthcare professionals concerning marketed health products and their safety. In some cases, information is intended to stimulate reporting of similar adverse reactions.
Each publication includes a monthly recap of health product advisories and summary safety reviews, as well as a growing selection of new health product safety information.
New information contained in the publication is not comprehensive but rather represents a selection of clinically relevant safety issues warranting enhanced dissemination.
