Drug Shortages in Canada

Vendredipm.ca presents the best available data on supply disruptions, batch withdrawals and drug withdrawals in Canada.

  • To view drug break data updated in real time by Canadian manufacturers,
  • To visualize the data of breaks of medicines updated by the wholesaler retained by SigmaSanté every week,
  • To view the information sheets of the Drug Information Center,
  • To view the anticipated drug break data (ie in the future),

This initiative is carried out as part of the activities of the Sigma Santé Pharmacists Committee with the support of the Research Unit in Pharmaceutical Practice, CHU Sainte-Justine and the contribution of Isabelle Barthélémy, Ronald Bourgeois, Géraldine Ottino, Denis Lebel and Jean -François Bussières.

It should be noted that vendredipm.ca publishes as of March 14, 2012, anticipated breakages declared by manufacturers on a voluntary basis. Among the research projects carried out by our team, we noted the proactive statement required by manufacturers in some countries (eg France). The functionality added to our site allows this proactive statement. However, to avoid confusion, anticipated breakouts are displayed on a separate page.

We would like to thank Hospira and Sandoz for their participation in the pilot project that led to the development of this platform. We highlight Nextacom’s contribution to the web expertise and hosting of this site.
