Introduzione

This course gives an overview of the pharmacovigilance activities and the related documents throughout the life cycle of a medicinal product. We will address:

  • benefit-risk analysis
  • signal management
  • data collection process
  • regulatory, format and content requirements.

While the course is based on the EU requirements, a few relevant insights about the most relevant local requirements will be provided. The participants will learn how to plan and manage PSURs and other pharmacovigilance documents in the life cycle and how to address selected challenges of document preparation.
