EAASM Consensus Statement on Unlicensed / Off-Label Medicines

Following the publication of the EAASM report « When is a Medicine Not a Medicine », the Alliance held a stakeholder round-table in London.  The main output from the meeting was a Consensus Statement on the patient safety implications around the use of unlicensed and off-label medicines.

The Consensus Statement calls for concrete actions to address what is a major loophole in patient safety. The EAASM ensured that every delegate to the European Health Forum Gastein received a copy of the original report and is now seeking additional signatories to the Statement. 

You can access the Statement using the link below.
