Horsham, PA (Vocus) October 28, 2008
The field of medical product safety continues to grow in complexity, with both clinical trial safety and post-marketing pharmacovigilance becoming ever more critical in the development and marketed use of medical products. In response, the Drug Information Association (DIA) will host Safety is Global: Contemporary Pharmacovigilance and Medical Product Risk Management Strategies (December 10-12; Marina Square, Singapore).
This unique three-day conference will explore the latest safety-related regulatory initiatives, how to optimally utilize epidemiological, clinical pharmacological and other techniques, state-of-the-art risk management strategies, and how all of this can be pulled together to create a "system." Featured topics will include:
- Latest international regulatory developments
- Generating and assessing critical safety data during development
- Compliance with clinical safety and post-marketing pharmacovigilance regulatory requirements in an evolving global environment
- Relationship between compliance and quality in safety-related processes and procedures
- Recent multinational initiatives under the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) and Council for International Organizations of Medical Sciences (CIOMS)
- New approaches in risk management, risk communication, labeling, and packaging to optimize medical product benefit while minimizing preventable harm
- Patient safety
"Safety professionals from countries and regions that do not participate in ICH will learn about the latest pharmacovigilance regulatory advances, how to optimize epidemiological and clinical pharmacological techniques in both clinical safety and post-marketing, and state-of-the-art risk management strategies," says Program Chair Stephen A. Goldman, MD, FAPM, DFAPA, Managing Member, Stephen A. Goldman Consulting Services, LLC. "In addition, there will be updates on regulatory frameworks for pharmacovigilance in the US, EU, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand, India and China in an effort to foster greater cooperation and collaboration for global patient safety."
