Have Your Say on Drug Shortages!

Health Canada is holding a public consultation on the current approach to drug shortages from May 22 to July 5, 2014. The Canadian Epilepsy Alliance encourages everyone concerned about drug shortages to participate.

The online consultation takes about 10-20 minutes to complete and will go a long way to making sure decision makers hear from the people most affected by drug shortages. You can also download the consultation questions and mail in your response. The consultation has additional background information before each question that you might find useful as well.
