Module objectives:
• To provide an overview of medicinal products safety, from development to marketing.
• To present the principles and practice of pharmacovigilance, and the roles of the various
authorities/entities involved.
• To know post-marketing safety requirements and spontaneous reporting/electronic
transmission/periodic reporting.
• To evaluate the sources of signals and to know the regulatory requirements for signal detection,
interpretation and management.
Learning outcomes of the Module:
By the end of this module participants will be able to:
• Understand the need of assessing medicinal products safety, both during development and the
marketing period.
• Identify and classify adverse events and adverse drug reactions, evaluating the causality.
• Develop Risk Management Plans and Risk Minimization Activities, while considering their legal
and regulatory frameworks.
• Understand the procedures for Expedited Reporting Notification, both in the EU and in the US,
and periodic safety reporting.
• Assess drug safety information and identify options for action in response to safety signals.
• Discuss issues surrounding effective crisis management and the communication of drug safety
issues to Regulatory Authorities, Healthcare Professionals and the General Public.
• Develop pharmacoepidemiological studies and methods to evaluate drug safety.
