Launch of the International Working Group on Signal Detection and Management in Pharmacovigilance
This week we launch the International Working Group (IWG) on Signal Detection and Management in Pharmacovigilance. Experts from over 20 organisations in the pharma industry and academia will attend Friday’s inaugural meeting in London in order to examine aspects of signal detection and signal management.
Signal Detection and Management are key steps in the pharmacovigilance process. While the CIOMS Working Group Report on Signal Detection was published in 2010, a lot has happened in this field since then. Thus we are bringing together a group of international experts to examine the science, define the needs and propose ideas and guidance for the future.
The IWG on Signal Detection and Management in Pharmacovigilance will be managed under the auspices of the DSRU Centre for Methods and Evidence in Pharmacovigilance (MEP), which was created in 2018 to undertake methodological work to improve and enhance pharmacovigilance.
