The Pharmacovigilance & Drug Safety event is designed to bring you a unique opportunity to gain fresh insights into the common issues faced in the industry, highlighting the areas with the need to focus on in order to remain compliant. Moreover this conference stream will provide the opportunity to network with various industry professionals including pharmaceuticals, biologics, devices, CROs and PV service providers.

With the augmented incidence of diseases, and the non-medical use of prescription drugs, the incidence of drug abuse has increased enormously in the recent years, which is apparent with the excess documentation of adversities and drug toxicities. In this context, the drug safety and pharmacovigilance has emerged as a dynamic clinical and scientific discipline to provide adequate information and ensure health safety by the joint interaction of doctors and patients in choosing appropriate treatment method and drug.

Pharmacovigilance & Drug Safety event will give you the foundation for strong strategic planning and practical decision-making in your pharmacovigilance programs, rather than the cookbook approaches often presented elsewhere. In addition to new developments and updates on regional regulations and guidelines, regulators from the US, EU, and other global regions provide the context and thinking behind evolving requirements. The summit will provide a platform for the participants to discuss, share and stay updated with present state of affairs in Pharmacovigilance and Drug safety, and contribute to the public health. It will also allow all its participants to interact with the experts, discuss the various developments, challenges faced and innovations in the field.
