What Should be Reported?

Bookmark and Share

A medication incident is a mistake with medication, or a problem that could cause a mistake with medication. You can report any medication incident involving the use of prescription and non-prescription medications, natural health products, imported products and devices or equipment used to administer medications.

Any medication incident that happened to you or to someone you know, can be reported. If you are reporting on behalf of someone you know, you should ask their permission to report the incident and be sure that you know all the facts about the incident.

Adverse drug reactions (also known as "side effects") are not medication incidents. Adverse drug reactions should be reported to Health Canada's Canada Vigilance Program.
