MHRA: Online learning module on reducing the side effects of steroid medicines to help clinicians to optimise the use of corticosteroids.

02.04.2015
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has launched an online learning module on reducing the side effects of steroid medicines. The module will help clinicians to optimise the use of corticosteroids. Corticosteroids are vital medicines for treating and preventing diverse disorders such as asthma, transplant rejection and arthritis. But they can cause troublesome and occasionally serious side effects. Health professionals and patients need to be clear about precautions that minimise corticosteroid side effects.
