PV Chronicle shares one more pharmacovigilance training information, ISoP-UMC Training.

ISoP-UMC Training. The fifth pharmacovigilance training course jointly organized by ISoP and UMC is scheduled on 11-12 January 2018 in Shenyang (China)

The International Society of Pharmacovigilance (ISoP) and the Uppsala Monitoring Centre (UMC) have a common interest to promote scientific research and practice through the mutual exchange of information on adverse events and risks related to medicinal products.

In January 2014, a first Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed by both parties, which establishes a strategic framework for a training collaboration. A primary focus was on Asia, a continent that accounts for 60% of the world’s population. It was considered that harmonisation of safety reporting requirements and pharmacovigilance systems would be of benefit for public health both on a global and a national level. After the Manila training in June 2014, the second Pharmacovigilance training course jointly organized by ISoP and UMC was scheduled for 12-14 January 2015 in Mysore, India.

Therefore, the third pharmacovigilance training course jointly organized by ISoP and UMC took place in Lima, Peru from 7 to 9 September 2016and the 4th ISoP-UMC Training in Panama from 4-6 September 2017.
