  • Friday, October 09, 2015

Signal detection is a necessary element of pharmacovigilance, which is mandated by EU regulatory requirements and strongly urged in the US by the FDA. Many tools and techniques can be employed to simplify this process and ensure your product is being proactively monitored.

Signal detection and trending is a powerful method used in the management of drug safety. This webinar will share the process of signal detection (detection, validation, analysis and prioritization, assessment and action) as detailed in the EMA Guideline on Good Pharmacovigilance Practices (GVP) Module IX – Signal Management and will also address the recommendations of the FDA. Additionally, we will focus on ways to tailor your signal surveillance approaches to best benefit your product’s drug safety profile, get the maximum value out of signals and drive patient safety.

Examples of signal detection through a multi-tiered approach will be provided, the roles of key players in the process will be introduced and the speaker will explore how the outcomes of signal detection and trending influence Benefit Risk assessments.
