Synopsis: 
Accessibility to accurate and reliable information is essential to healthcare professionals and patients for ensuring the safe and correct use of health products. A trend of providing electronic product information, or e-labelling, over the use of traditional printed labels is accelerating. This shift in improving accessibility to information opens up exciting possibilities for health literacy, but also raises concerns. The advent of the internet and social media has resulted in an explosion of alternative information sources, increasing the risk of accessing incorrect information, and potentially compromising the appropriate use of health products. CoRE welcomes you to join us for this seminar with Dr Shimon Yoshida on the potential for e-labelling in Asia and sharing initiatives from other parts of the world. Closing the seminar will be a panel discussion with representatives from the healthcare sector, regulatory authority and industry to further discuss the contemporary topic of e-labelling.
