3-Day Course: Pharmacovigilance - Understanding PhV Today (London, United Kingdom - June 24-26, 2019) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

May 3, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 3, 2019--The “Pharmacovigilance - Understanding PhV Today” conference has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This course aims to provide basic training for those concerned with pharmacovigilance. New entrants as well as experienced operators in drug safety monitoring will benefit from the mixture of scientific knowledge and practical guidance. In addition, detailed information will be provided on regulatory developments in pharmacovigilance in Europe, the USA and Japan.

Key topics to be addressed include:

  • Principles of pharmacovigilance and data resources
  • Risk management, causality assessment and PASS/PAES studies
  • Pharmacoepidemiological studies and evolution of PSURs, PBRERs and DSURs
  • Proactive pharmacovigilance pre- and post-marketing, risk-benefit assessment
  • Pharmacovigilance regulations, clinical trial ADR reporting requirements in Drug surveillance in countries outside Europe
  • Post-marketing surveillance: observational cohort studies
  • An overview of signal detection and risk management plans
