Adverse drug reaction (ADR) assessment, reporting and communication by healthcare professionals (HCPs) remains suboptimal, potentially leading to poor patient outcomes.1 Variability of ADR management in hospital settings is partly due to limited teaching of basic scientific principles concerning ADRs in pre-vocational university courses, as well as the lack of opportunities to apply integrated ADR concepts to solve complex problems commonly encountered in clinical practice.1 Crucial concepts behind severe immunologically mediated ADRs, such as anaphylaxis and severe cutaneous reactions, and translation of these into clinical practice, are not familiar to many HCPs.
