Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training program will examine the different types of social networks (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) and help identify similarities, differences, and challenges for pharmacovigilance (PV) professionals. It will also analyze social networks and the new approach to benefit/risk ratio.

Why Should You Attend:

A key benefit of social media is that it can be mined to generate hypotheses related to drug efficacy and safety. These data may provide an early warning about potentially serious but rare adverse events (AEs). However, social media also presents technical and regulatory challenges as pharmaceutical companies are required to report to regulatory authorities all AEs of which they become aware that contain the 4 required elements for reporting.

However, the emergence of social media and its use by biopharmaceutical manufacturers and their stakeholders present promising new opportunities along with challenges for pharmacovigilance (PV) professionals and procedures and processes will probably need to be reviewed and updated

Learning Objectives:

  • To examine the different types of social networks (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) and identify similarities and differences.
  • To understand the shift in the benefit/risk ratio determination and data collection caused by the possible use of these new media.
  • To understand the present and future approach to addressing the problem.
  • To evaluate the possible impact on pharmacovigilance/signal detection procedures and the need for corrective actions.
