20 June 2011 /Side effects and trials
In 2010, primarily the Danish Minister for the Interior and Health’s action plan to improve monitoring of side effects marked the work in the pharmacovigilance area. The action plan was launched in 2009 in cooperation with the Council for Adverse Drug Reactions and was fully implemented in 2010. The annual report offers an insight into much of the pharmacovigilance work performed by the Danish Medicines Agency in 2010.
