Duration: 90 Minutes - Online
Price: $299 - Includes Bonus Handouts!

Course Description:

The regulations worldwide require pharmaceutical firms, biopharmaceutical companies, and marketing authorization holders (MAH) to report all adverse events (AE) for which there is a reasonable possibility that their medication caused the event.  Yet, sponsors and manufacturers often are cited for not being in compliance with these regulations.  The process requires a critical attention to detail, well-written protocols and standard operating procedures (SOPs), and concise, audit-ready reporting. This course will also address the current adverse events report format and content for non-approved medicinal products (Drug Safety Update Reports - DSURs).  A sample DSUR will be provided.  The newly-required Periodic Benefit-Risk Evaluation Report (PBRER) and content will be discussed.  Any differences between the US and EU requirements will be highlighted.

This webinar will discuss how you can run a compliant, efficient AE reporting program.  By attending this 90-minute interactive session, you will:

  • Gain the foundation to build a compliant program while avoiding common pitfalls
  • Understand differences in reporting requirements between the U.S. and EU
  • Learn the critical parts of the process – from laying out SOPs through report writing

This course will be of benefit to anyone involved in clinical trial design, oversight and/or adverse event reporting.
