Both the PDSS and eLadder Safety are designed to respect drug safety professionals' limited time and travel budgets, so combining these two knowledge-transfer opportunities is the right thing to do to help our fellow pharmacovigilance colleagues train their staff to monitor product safety effectively.
Emeryville, CA (PRWEB) September 21, 2009
BioSoteria, Inc., a drug safety services and training firm, announced today a special offer that combines the company's popular one-day annual conference with its innovative eLearning courses. Attendees of the 3rd Annual Pacific Drug Safety Summit will receive a coupon entitling them to an exclusive discount toward the purchase of individual eLadder™ Safety courses. Additionally, a limited-time incentive for the purchase of the three-course bundle is now available on BioSoteria's website.
The Pacific Drug Safety Summit (PDSS), produced by BioSoteria, is the largest pharmacovigilance conference held each year in the Western United States. Now in its third year, PDSS takes place on September 25, 2009, at the Mission Bay Conference Center at University of California San Francisco (UCSF) in downtown San Francisco. It features dynamic discussions with global thought leaders and more than 125 drug safety practitioners and providers.
BioSoteria's eLadder™ Safety is the first and only comprehensive eLearning curriculum in pharmacovigilance. Because the online training program is an ideal follow-on activity to the PDSS, BioSoteria will be distributing a coupon at the conference to all attendees for their own use or to be used by their staff. The coupon provides a 10% discount on the purchase of a single course. Additionally, a 30% discount for the bundle of eLadder™ Safety Courses 1, 2 and 3, is now available through the BioSoteria website for purchases made by October 31, 2009.
"Expanding biopharmaceutical companies' knowledge and competence in pharmacovigilance is as important to us as providing drug safety consulting and services," said Sally Van Doren, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of BioSoteria. "Both the PDSS and eLadder Safety are designed to respect drug safety professionals' limited time and travel budgets, so combining these two knowledge-transfer opportunities is the right thing to do to help our fellow pharmacovigilance colleagues train their staff to monitor product safety effectively."
