The TGA has officially launched its Facebook page, following a soft launch last month
The Therapeutic Goods Administration joined Facebook in August 2018, and invited a small group of people to follow the page, provide feedback on the agency’s posts, and inform future content.
Its content has now been viewed more than 50,000 times, it says.
Now, the TGA is celebrating the official launch of the page, encouraging Australians to make use of information and tips on the safety of medicines and medical devices.
Health professionals are encouraged to use it to follow latest news and guidance on the regulation of therapeutic goods.
The TGA plans to regularly update its page with consumer fact sheets, product safety alerts, and callouts for consumer input on regulatory decisions, as well as “fun facts” regarding health conditions.
Around 60% of Australians use social media, including Facebook, the TGA says.
