FDA MedWatch Celebrates 20 Years and Announces the Availability of New Consumer-Friendly Reporting Form and MedWatchLearn Tool
FDA commemorates the 20th anniversary of MedWatch, the Agency’s premier safety reporting system that helps consumers and health care providers report medical product problems to FDA and allows them receive new safety information from FDA. Additionally, FDA is pleased to announce the availability of two new tools:
- MedWatchLearn is a web-based learning tool designed to educate students, health professionals and consumers on reporting in a way that provides the best information for reviewers to further investigate medical product problems.
- Form FDA 3500B is a new consumer-friendly voluntary reporting form which contains less technical language than the existing 3500 form.
We encourage you to use these new tools and share this information with your colleagues, patients, and friends.
