Peuters en tieners lopen hoogste risico op medicijnvergiftiging

27 mei 2015

In a new report, “Medicine Safety for Children: An In-Depth Look at Calls to Poison Centers,” Safe Kids Worldwide, in partnership with the American Association of Poison Control Centers, analyzed more than 547,000 calls to poison centers to better understand what types of medicine little kids and teens are getting into and how it happens.
The report reveals 1 and 2 year olds account for 53% of medicine-related calls to poison centers. 15-19 year olds are 6-times more likely to have serious outcomes. Next to new products and food contaminations the report also identifies innovations in product packaging as one of the emerging risks (Persbericht Safe Kids Worldwide, 16 maart 2015).
