Pharmacovigilance (Theory)

Pharmacovigilance also known as drug safety, is the pharmacological science relating to the collection, detection, assessment, monitoring, and prevention of adverse effects with pharmaceutical products. The etymological roots for the word "pharmacovigilance" are: pharmakon (Greek for drug) and vigilare. As such, pharmacovigilance heavily focuses on adverse drug reactions, or ADRs, which are defined as any response to a drug which is noxious and unintended, including lack of efficacy (the condition that this definition only applies with the doses normally used for the prophylaxis, diagnosis or therapy of disease, or for the modification of physiological disorder function was excluded with the latest amendment of the applicable legislation.

Why this course ?

The information collected during the pre-marketing phase of a medical drug is inevitably incomplete with regard to possible adverse reactions, Pharmacovigilance is needed in every country, because there are differences between countries in the occurrence of adverse drug reactions and other drug-related problems.
