PINO-MARIN, Daniel et al. Results of the implementation of the report of suspicion of adverse drug reactions by patients: structured review. Rev. Univ. Ind. Santander. Salud [online]. 2018, vol.50, n.2, pp.136-142. ISSN 0121-0807.


To identify the contribution of the report of suspected adverse drug reactions by patients, as well as the barriers and facilitators associated with this strategy.


Structured review based on PubMed / MedLine articles in English and Spanish, until 05/30/2017, using the keywords: Pharmacovigilance reporting AND patient report.


16 articles were identified with information related to the object of study and three more were included taking into account their relevance. Main barriers and facilitators of patients for reporting suspected adverse drug reactions, the effects of the report and its characteristics, were identified. Besides, similarities and disparities between reports from health professionals and patients were described.


The implementation of the report by patients decreases sub-reporting in pharmacovigilance. In addition, it allows the active participation and integration of patients’ experiences about adverse drug reactions.

Palavras-chave : Pharmacovigilance; drug-related side effects and adverse reactions; drug utilization; ambulatory care; patient participation.
