Why should I take this course?

Monitoring of adverse drug events (ADE), both adverse drug reactions (ADR) and medication errors, is important to ensure safe use of medicines. Organisations with responsibility for collecting information about ADE exist but rely on practitioners to report the event to them. This micro skills course from the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges aims to inform trainees about how to recognise ADE and of the need to report them to the most appropriate agency to allow national review of ADE data.

This course is ideal for

All health professionals.

Do I need any prior qualifications or experience?

Our courses and programs have been designed to meet the needs of a broad range of trainees and qualified healthcare professionals. For most courses, we do not ask that you hold certain qualifications or meet certain criteria.
Some courses are aligned to specialist medical curricula so there is a certain level of medical knowledge required in these cases. On the whole, however, the courses and programs are accessible to a broad audience of learners.

Are the programs accredited for continuous professional development (CPD) or continuing medical education (CME)?

Our courses have been developed and are delivered by Talisium's global network of content providers including universities and various professional bodies whose work underpins CPD for healthcare professionals.
Certificates of completion will be available and can be downloaded once a course has been completed. These can be used as evidence of learning for training and CPD purposes. You will need to check with your governing body about CPD standards and requirements.
Unless otherwise stated, certificates issued through Talisium are not qualifications of any formal assessment.
