Dr. Corinne Hohl featured in podcast for the Canadian Medical Association Journal
Dr. Corinne Hohl, Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine at the University of British Columbia and Scientist at the Centre for Clinical Epidemiology and Evaluation in Vancouver was interviewed by Dr. Kirsten Patrick, deputy editor for CMAJ. Currently, Bill C-17 (Vanessa's Law) does not require health care providers to document serious adverse drug reactions, but mandates that health care institutions report all documented serious reactions. Documentation rates are currently very low and, unless documentation of adverse events improves, the potential of the law to do good will be small, say Hohl and colleagues in a commentary published in CMAJ.
