Quality, Compliance <br> and Audit in GVP

Quality is an essential requirement in the management of any Pharmacovigilance System, as well as to guarantee their Compliance. The Good Pharmacovigilance Practices (GVPs) are the indications provided by EMA to simplify the management of the pharmacovigilance systems in the European Union. Therefore, the complete and correct knowledge of GVPs is essential to ensure the quality management of the pharmacovigilance systems. The effective evaluation of the risk-benefit ratio and of the patients' well-being is essential to ensure the monitoring of medicine's safety.

  • signals
  • GVPs
  • audits
  • documents
  • compliance
  • deviations
  • changes
  • pharmacovigilance inspections.

The know-how necessary to implement and manage the compliance with the GVPs will be discussed, in order to ensure the company's Inspection Readiness. Finally, the management and oversight of external suppliers that could have to be involved for these activities will be reviewed.

During this 2 day training, the following topics will be addressed:

  • Key Performance Indicators (KPI)
