As from 1 January 2021, there is a new national reporting point for healthcare professionals (i.e. doctors, pharmacists…) to report any kind of incidents with medication: from errors in the prescription up to the administration of medicines, including a list of medicinal product mix-ups that have been reported twice or more in a calendar year. Voorkomen Medicatie-Incidenten, or VMI analyses all reported incidents and provides feedback to the healthcare professionals on potential medication errors in order to prevent these from reoccurring. VMI shares the content of their anonymised reports with Lareb if considered necessary for pharmacovigilance purposes.
