With ever increasing responsibilities and regulations to get to grips with, the role of Pharmacovigilance grows increasingly complex.

This course has been designed to meet the needs of people working within Pharmacovigilance, either as relatively new starters or as departmental administrators, and those working in related functions who would benefit from foundational knowledge of Pharmacovigilance, e.g. Medical Information, Quality, Regulatory Affairs, Sales and Marketing, Legal and Commercial. It provides the ideal opportunity to consolidate existing knowledge and get a complete overview of Pharmacovigilance.

This structured programme will put Pharmacovigilance into context, looking at: 

  • Why drug safety is so important to the pharmaceutical business and patient care
  • Finding your way around the regulations
  • Update on recent regulatory changes
  • Terminology – understanding the jargon
  • Clinical Trials – overview & relevance
  • SOPs 
  • Preparing for an Audit or Inspection
  • Case handling
  • Signal management and Risk Management Plans

 These interactive sessions will help individuals:

  •  Improve their skills and knowledge
  • Gain greater job satisfaction

Participants will have many opportunities to discuss issues of concern and to share best practice with colleagues in other companies.

 Target audience:

New starters in Pharmacovigilance including departmental administrators.

Those working in related functions who would benefit from foundational knowledge of Pharmacovigilance practices.
