Une campagne pour inciter les Français à s’interroger sur leur consommation de médicaments

Les médicaments, ne les prenez pas n'importe commentLe 2 mars 2012, le Ministère chargé de la Santé diffuse une nouvelle campagne nationale d’information et de sensibilisation sur le bon usage du médicament. Signée « Les médicaments, ne les prenez pas n’importe comment. », cette campagne a pour objectif de faire prendre conscience aux Français des risques liés à la banalisation de la consommation du médicament et de réaffirmer le rôle prépondérant des professionnels de santé.

Le médicament contient des substances actives qui ont des effets sur l’organisme. Il est là pour soigner mais s’il est mal utilisé, il peut être dangereux. Ainsi, le ministère chargé de la Santé a décidé de lancer une campagne sur le bon usage du médicament, à destination du grand public.

Cette campagne souligne que l’usage optimal du médicament relève d’une responsabilité partagée par tous les acteurs concernés, dont le patient, le médecin prescripteur et le pharmacien sont le socle.

Drug Risks: Texas decision shifts Liability to Doctors, removes Accountability from Drugmakers

Doctors, not drugmakers, must warn patients of risks, court says

Court: Doctors, not drugmakers, must warn patients of risksThe Supreme Court of Texas has ruled that pharmaceutical manufacturers are not responsible for conveying drug risks to patients, even when the drugmakers advertise their products directly to consumers… Health professionals said the decision creates greater liability for doctors and removes necessary responsibility from drugmakers after medication mishaps… drugmakers are not completely without liability if a patient is injured by a drug. If incorrect information is passed to physicians, a manufacturer still can be held liable… But drug companies cannot be sued for failing to provide drug warning information directly to a patient…” .
