Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacovigilance

The global health challenge of maximising drug safety yet maintaining public confidence has become increasingly complex. Pharmaceutical companies are required to employ named members of staff responsible for pharmacovigilance. Health authorities grapple with the need to provide quality care whilst containing a burgeoning drug budget. Regulatory authorities must balance the potential benefits of new drugs with varying levels of suspicion of their potential harm. This short course addresses the increasing need for well-informed professionals to work in all areas related to the assessment of drug safety and risk-benefit of drug use. This is an introductory course which should meet the needs of a wide variety of practitioners.
