"Challenges impacting the reporting of Adverse Drug Reactions among healthcare professionals: Improving pharmacovigilance in Nigeria." by Dr. Prosper Chibuikem Anaedu

An ADR is a drug response that is unintended and occurs at doses normally used in man for prophylaxis, therapy or the modification of physiological function. ADR reporting is critical in improving pharmacovigilance in Nigeria. This oversees the activities that relates to the knowledge, detection, assessment and prevention of adverse events or any drug-related issue. This research was undertaken with the purpose of identifying and exploring the challenges faced by healthcare professionals in spontaneously reporting ADRs, with the aim of improving reporting rates, promoting drug safety practices and reducing the burden of ADRs in Nigeria. Issues emanating from ADRs are highly critical because of the drug misinformation, misuse, advanced age-related physiological, biological, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic changes observed. When patients suffer from ADRs, it is challenging to determine how severe the outcomes are, even when the prescribed drug benefits clearly outweigh the risks..

"An Analysis of The Use of Wearable Technology as A Means of Controlling Drug Delivery Systems and The Challenges Facing Its Usage in Ireland" by Bolatito Temitayo Adewumi

This research is based on using wearable devices in controlled drug delivery and the challenges involved in the design, manufacturing, and sales of the devices. It is only focused on controlled drug delivery systems and does not include its use in other forms of drug delivery. It is aimed at determining the challenges affecting the use of this technology in Ireland by discussing with experts the pharmaceutical and medical devices industry. It will examine how the public and potential customers perceive such creation and how it will be potentially received in the market..
