Ardens has created a suite of searches to support practices with identifying patients potentially at risk based on information from the Central Alerting System.  These searches may be of interest to the pharmacy team.

To locate the searches, access the Population Reporting module > Ardens Searches > 2.15 Prescribing - CAS alerts searches folder. This folder is broken down by 3 sub folders.

The Clinical safety folder contains searches to identify patients on particular medications where there has been a National safety alert issued.  These patients records should be reviewed and where appropriate consider stopping or issuing an alternative medication.

The Recalls folder identifies patients on medication where there has been a National recall of that medication or device.  These patients should be contacted to discuss an alternative medication.

The Reclassified (special container) folder identifies patients issued Madopar/Co-beneldopa that need their prescribed quantities changed to original manufacturer packs.


The Supply disruption folder contains searches identifying patients issued medication where there is a potential supply issue.  You may wish to review these patients and prescribe an alternative medication.
