Dublin, November 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The “Pharmacovigilance training course” the conference has been added to offer.

This comprehensive three-day course has been designed to provide an introductory guide for anyone concerned with pharmacovigilance. The interactive program will cover topics ranging from basic pharmacovigilance principles and terminologies to the current regulatory framework and its global impact, including the oversight of medicines in the EU, US and Japan. Proactive pre- and post-market pharmacovigilance will be addressed, as will risk management, challenges of causality assessments and effective signal detection.

Our expert panel will offer practical advice throughout the course and use real-life examples and case studies to help develop your knowledge. There will also be plenty of opportunities to share experiences with speakers and professional colleagues, which will further enhance your understanding of pharmacovigilance issues.

The main topics to be covered include:

  • Pharmacovigilance principles and data resources
  • Risk management, causality assessment and post-authorization safety and efficacy studies (PASS / PAES)
  • Pharmacoepidemiological studies and evolution of periodic safety update reports (PSUR), periodic benefit-risk assessment reports (PBRER) and updated safety development reports (DSUR)
  • Proactive pre- and post-marketing pharmacovigilance, risk-benefit assessment
  • Pharmacovigilance regulations, ADR reporting requirements for clinical trials n Drug monitoring in countries outside Europe
