7. Post-Market Surveillance of Therapeutic Drugs in Canada  
 Add to Shortlist | View Shortlist
REGION:  NATIONAL
Resource Type: Report
TOPIC(S): GENERAL ANALYSES
Partly due to inadequate funding, the current Canadian post-market surveillance system does not adequately detect harmful or unexpected effects of drugs in a timely manner. Delays in identifying harm caused by drugs result in corresponding delays in appropriate follow-up actions, such as providing additional information and warnings to health professionals and consumers, revising or adding information to a product’s label, restricting use or withdrawing a product from the market.In this paper, we argue that greater consumer involvement would considerably improve the effectiveness of the post-market surveillance system.

8. The Inclusion of Women in Clinical Trials: Are We Asking the Right Questions?  
 Add to Shortlist | View Shortlist
REGION:  NATIONAL
Resource Type: Report
TOPIC(S): GENERAL ANALYSES
While including women in clinical trials may begin to provide data that address biological differences between males and females with regard to drug metabolism, kinetics, etc., the dictum “to include” glosses too quickly over gender differences that may play a substantial role in how women use and respond to drugs. As well, wider questions about whether drugs are the best way to deal with a problem are left unexamined by a singular focus on the “inclusion of women.” These questions may actually be more relevant to women’s health protection and health promotion. This report, therefore, addresses both the narrow and the wider issues evoked in considering the inclusion of women in clinical trials, highlighting especially where gender, even more than sex, is pertinent.
