FDA Widgets: How About One for Adverse Event Reporting?

Fabio Gratton is at it again! He has started a poll, which asks "To all pharma marketers: A universal FDA Adverse Event widget required by all pharma websites (brand, disease, social) would be effective?"

I assume he is following up on the "Tit-for-Tat Tithe" idea and that the widget he is proposing would allow visitors to pharma websites to easily report adverse events DIRECTLY to the FDA. This would lift the burden from pharmaceutical companies to track, investigate and report the adverse events themselves and free them up to focus on using social media sites for marketing purposes.

Sounds like a good idea. What do you think? Take Fabio's poll here.

Meanwhile, here are a few widgets developed by third parties that push out FDA information on drug safety topics. They are not interactive in the sense that you can enter information into them.


  1. John, A quick question to you
    Can a med/pharma company can keep that kind of widget on the official blog ? or do they need to obtain someone's permission to do so ??

  2. Most of these are free to use by anyone.

  3. Thanks John Mack ! One question just came in mind ie. Is there any widget for hiding or showing only some post on blog.
