Pharmaceutical companies are required, by law, to provide adequate training to their employees so that they are able to identify and report adverse events.

While many companies will have a programme in place to facilitate this training, it may not always be possible to make this immediately available to every new starter. Equally, the existing programme may be labour intensive to maintain or deliver.

PIPA has therefore developed a cost-effective generic online training course that provides the legally required level of training for all employees working for a Pharmaceutical Company so that they are able to recognise and report adverse events. It has been developed by senior Pharmacovigilance experts working within the Pharmaceutical Industry so you can be confident of the quality and relevance of the training. It is up-to-date with current regulations and, once you have passed the test at the end of the training course, a formal certificate is provided to confirm course completion and understanding.

 Target audience:

Any employees working for a Pharmaceutical Company - this course
provides the legally required level of training on identifying
and recording AEs


Time: 1 -2 hours


Level of difficulty: Basic / introductory
