Yellow Card: What is Yellow Card Reporting?

The Yellow Card Centre Scotland and NHS Education Scotland (NES) have collaborated to produce 6 interactive e-learning modules on adverse drug reactions (ADRs). These modules aim to increase awareness of the harms that can be caused by medicines including admissions to hospital and prolongation of hospital stays; and how these problems can be identified or avoided. The modules have been developed for continuing professional development for all healthcare professionals across NHS Scotland.

The modules highlight when it is and when it is not appropriate to fill out a yellow card report for an ADR, and can be found here.
