Dayna Kwan replied to a discussion in Public Health Surveillance

Hi Taylor, Based on PHSA’s analysis of the current Td Adsorbed product in Panorama, we do not think it was clearly distinguished whether the product and associated SNOMED code 7371000087109 has always only referred to “with preservative”, or to both “with preservative” and “without preservative” products. The Panorama Inventory catalogue has DIN 00514462 configured with catalogue item name “Td Td Adsorbed 0.5 mL single dose vial (5/box)” and tradename “Td Adsorbed”, so there has not been any specific reference made to “with preservative”. Additionally BCCDC has informed us that "This transition is purely on the presentation and has no impact from a medical standpoint on the product. The efficacy and potency of Td-ads in the previous presentation and the new presentation remains the same". Thus PPHIS (Provincial Public Health Information Systems) is fine with either having the same SNOMED code kept for both products or for a new SNOMED code to be created for the preservative-free product (DIN 02528401). Thank you

RSV Agent Requirements - Question for PHSC Community 01/18/24

Hi Cathy, Thank you for your feedback. Indeed we often take for granted that the audience is aware of all acronyms and standards specific terms, which may not be the case, so the FSN refers to the SNOMED CT Fully Specified Name and the RFC refers to...

RSV Agent Requirements - Question for PHSC Community 01/17/24

Hi Linda, thanks for your reply, but it still is a bit murky. I don't know what you mean by RFCs and FSNs. Even though I have 35 years of experience mostly dealing with vaccines, imm records & clinical software across 8 prov/territories, thi...

RSV Agent Requirements - Question for PHSC Community 01/17/24

Thank you Jo-Anne for the explanation. Also, for explaining what the acronym EDQM means and the reference link. Perhaps if it stated "... and suspension containing adjuvant.." , it would be clearer. It just looked like a repeated phrase typo.

RSV Agent Requirements - Question for PHSC Community 01/17/24

Hi, I can confirm that the two vaccines have different presentations and the wording for each presentation has been chosen to comply with the EDQM standard terms for units of presentation. In the RFCs for each vaccine concept the comments also justi...
