Help us promote adverse event reporting: promotional resources kit

22 August 2019

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) wants your help to improve the safety of medicines, vaccines, and medical devices in Australia. We want everyone's help, whether they're a health professional reporting on behalf of a patient, or a member of the public reporting an adverse event for their self or a family member.

Adverse events can be:

  • reactions and side effects to medicines and vaccines
  • problems, faults and near-misses with medical devices, including implants and in vitro diagnostic devices

You can help by sharing our messages on social media, your website and around your workplace. Download and use any of the items below to start the conversation and educate others on the benefits of reporting any adverse events.
