Risk Minimisation

Risk Minimisation materials (e.g. educational brochures, patient alert cards, posters etc) are intended to improve the use of a medicine by positively influencing health professionals and patients to reduce the risk and/or the severity of adverse reactions associated with a particular medicine.

These materials are additional to the medicine’s Summary of Product Characteristics and Patient Information Leaflet and their requirements are part of the product EU Risk Management Plan.

Only some medicines have a set of tailored risk minimisation materials developed for this purpose.
If required, these materials are reviewed and approved by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory agency.

To access Risk Minimisation materials for our medicines, please click the following links: Please note that you will need to then click on the ‘Risk Materials’ banner at the top.
