Public Comment Period Underway for Feedback on the National Action Plan for Adverse Drug Event Prevention
Adverse drug events are the largest contributor to hospital-related complications, and they account for more than 3.5 million physician office visits each year. As a result of increased attention to reducing and preventing the dangers associated with adverse drug events, HHS, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, has developed the National Action Plan for Adverse Drug Event Prevention. HHS seeks feedback from a wide array of stakeholders, including organizations and professional groups, on the draft version of the plan. The public comment period opened September 4 and continues until 5:00 p.m. ET on October 3. Select to participate in this public comment period.
