Tracking Adverse Events

An illustrative guide to using the Adverse Events Module

While administering the dose to a beneficiary (usually children), there can be instances when the beneficiary shows some symptoms against the dose provided. These adverse events need to be recorded and monitored as it helps to take precautionary measures for further doses as well as in future campaigns for that beneficiary. It is helpful for cases when a beneficiary's situation becomes critical and he/she needs to be referred to a healthcare facility. This is also crucial for resource tracking because, in certain campaigns, the beneficiary can be re-administered the dose even after he vomits out the medicine.

Using Tracking Adverse Events

Deliver Intervention

The user needs to provide the delivery details for the resources delivered to the beneficiary. The screen is configurable depending upon the campaign type and the auto-calculated resources and quantity are displayed and populated in the fields. The user can edit the fields if required to change the resource administered.

Adverse Events

When the user clicks ‘Next’ on the deliver intervention screen, it opens a pop-up that asks: “Did you observe any adverse events?” If the user selects ‘No’, the adverse events screen is skipped, and he/she is directly navigated to the next screen in the flow. If the user selects ‘Yes’, it opens the adverse events form to capture the details. On top the summary of delivered resources is displayed in a tabular form. The list of symptoms must be configurable to include more values if required. It is possible that the beneficiary shows multiple symptoms, thus the user must be able to select multiple values from the list.

If the dose is readministered, then the user must select ‘yes’ and provide the number of times it has been readministered.

The “Refer Beneficiary” button navigates the user to the refer beneficiary flow, in case the beneficiary is critical and requires medical assistance. The ‘Next’ button takes the user to the next screen in the flow.
