Description

Pharmacovigilance is the science and actions relating unfolding to detection, evaluation, understanding and prevention of adverse effects or any other likely medicine related problems. The main aim of pharmacovigilance is to improve patient care and safety in relation to use of medicines and other interventions. Despite all the benefits of medicines in disease management, there continues to be problems related to adverse reactions which are important cause for morbidity and mortality in many countries. Significant harm to even a few patients, not only destroys the credibility of the medicine, the patients also tend to loose trust on the the health system. A good Pharmacovigilance system will identify the risks in the shortest possible time, so that any harm can be avoided or minimized. The most frightening thought for any pharma company is the prospect of a drug withdrawal. As the costs associated with product withdrawals escalate the importance of pharmacovigilance increases.

India has more than half a million qualified Doctors and15,000 hospitals having bed strength of 6,24,000. It is the fourth largest producer of pharmaceuticals in the world. It is emerging as an important Clinical trial hub in the world. Many new drugs are being introduced in our country. Therefore, there is a need for a vibrant pharmacovigilance system in the country to protect the population from the potential harm that may be caused by some of these new drugs. The most effective way to avoid a safety crisis is to implement a progressive pharmacovigilance strategy now.

Pharmacovigilance 2010 conference will discuss the on-going pressing concerns faced in drug safety, addressing the risks, timeline and budget constraints. This conference brings together top pharmaceutical, biotechnology and regulatory representatives in a forum that addresses the key issues of the industry. The in-depth program covers discussions on the detection, analysis and prevention of adverse drug reactions with case studies and sharing of industry experiences and best practices. Understand and learn the latest insights, tools and knowledge to ensure that you and your firm catch up with the current and future market. Analyze along with the market leaders, the latest developments in pharmacovigilance which would shape your organization-wide risk management strategy.
