Abstract

Prior to the development and implementation of a Pharmacovigilance Daily Monitoring Tool at the Standerton TB Specialised Hospital in the Mpumalanga Province, the hospital did not record any adverse drug reactions (ADRs) and had patients defaulting on their tuberculosis (TB) medication. Subsequent to the implementation of the tool, in collaboration with all healthcare professionals, ADRs are identified and managed, with an increase in the number of patients who completed their TB treatment. Lessons learnt through this intervention can be useful for other healthcare facilities in the country.
