Back to Basics in Pharmacovigilance is a course designed to provide solid practical foundations for those working in drug safety. This course will benefit staff working in pharmacovigilance departments and will be of interest to a broad range of staff in the pharmaceutical industry and regulatory authorities.
Monitoring drug safety is very important to public health. Pharmacovigilance is the science and activities relating to the detection, assessment, understanding and prevention of adverse effects or any other drug-related problems. Those working in pharmacovigilance must have a good working knowledge of the principles of drug safety, its regulations and proactive strategies for risk management.
The Back to Basics in Pharmacovigilance course is one of the three DSRU courses which comprise the Drug Safety Surveillance module of the PMST and can be used by pharmaceutical physicians as part of that training if required. This course is also one of the three compulsory units from our PgC/PgD in Pharmacovigilance run in collaboration with the University of Portsmouth.
