Abstract / Description of output

In the UK, adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are responsible for over 6.5% of all hospital admissions, representing a significant morbidity and cost burden to the health service. We aimed to develop an ADR monitoring system capable of identifying the reasons for patient discontinuation of drug therapy within 6 months of the index prescription.
