AIM: BY THE END OF THIS MODULE, THE STUDENT SHOULD BE ABLE TO:
Understand the relations between pharmacovigilance and the processes of application and registration, focusing on areas and phases in drug development processes in which the clinical development, registration, and pharmacovigilance units co-operate closely; overview of the pharmacovigilance staff and their roles in the pre-application phase.
Analyse the different pre-application tasks for the pharmacovigilance staff in relation to: preparation
of clinical study protocols, conduct of clinical studies, preparation of annual safety reports (SUSARs), preparation of integrated clinical study reports, preparation of scientific advice in relation to the
