Abstract

One of the biggest challenges health professionals face when counselling patients about medication use in pregnancy is accessibility to evidence-based information on the risks or benefits associated with treatment. There is inadequate information available regarding the immediate and long-term effects of medications used by pregnant women on the mother and the fetus. Novel surveillance techniques using populationbased record linkage could enable better identification, quantification and understanding of long-term risks or benefits of medications used during pregnancy. The technology, data and expertise are available to make it happen.
