Pharmacovigilance Benefit-Risk Assessments: Requirements, Transparency, and Implications, a New and Upcoming Drug Safety Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) November 26, 2013

Pharmacovigilance Benefit-risk assessments are typically conducted as part of a regulatory inquiry, for completing the PBRER, the RMP, or as part of an NDA submission. However, benefit-risk assessments are also a crucial part of signal validation and due diligence for making portfolio decisions. This webinar will outline the methodology and conduct of safety benefit-risk assessments for post-marketed products.

There are currently several challenges for companies trying to meet the requirements for benefit-risk assessments. The methodology for identifying and calculating risks and their frequencies in the post-marketing phase is subject to different, varying factors and fraught with caveats. At the end of the day, measuring and defining benefit-risk for a specific product is subjective.

This webinar will look at the challenges of conducting benefit-risk assessments at both the portfolio and the product-level to:

  • Provide an overview of regulations in the EU and the US requiring benefit-risk assessments
  • Determine how to increase transparency with agencies and other stakeholders and discuss why transparency is important
  • Examine the consequences of incorrectly assessing benefit and risk

Join keynote speaker Mary Mease, Senior Director of Risk Management at Quintiles, to learn:

  • General guidelines for conducting benefit-risk assessments
  • Understand regulatory requirements around benefit-risk assessments

Mary Mease leads the Safety Knowledge Team, the business strategy for Lifecycle Safety, and the development of strategies and solutions for Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies (REMS) at Quintiles.
