Different Perspectives and New Challenges within Pharmacovigilance Regulated Activities

2023 is a special year for the yearly conference “Nordic Pharmacovigilance Day”, as it has successfully reached the 10th edition which will be held in Copenhagen on November 16th 2023.

It will be a full day event focused on the current and interesting topics for people working in depth with pharmacovigilance regulated activities or with any interlinking activities in e.g. related departments, in northern Europe.

Knowledgeable experts coming from pharma industry, health authorities, service providers and CROs, will share their experiences and will be available for discussion and questions.

The aim of this conference is to bring the learning opportunity for pharmacovigilance professionals to  discuss, interact, actively participate and get inspired from the speakers as well as from each other.

Considering that the expectation covering pharmacovigilance is quickly evolving within several different areas, the agenda of the conference will offer different perspectives from e.g. regulators, insights from partners and providers, and presenting examples from both small and big pharma companies.

The talks will focus on:

  • Regulatory processes in pharmacovigilance activities
  • Early experiences of the EU CTR n.536/2014
  • Optimization of pharmacovigilance processes
  • Handling of new sources of safety information
  • Globalization of PSMF
  • Learnings from PV audits – internal activities and external vendors
  • Medical Devices: vigilance and signal detection
  • Combination products: challenges and solutions
