What is Pharmacovigilance? 

Pharmacovigilance (PV) is the scientific discipline concerned with the detection, assessment, understanding and prevention of adverse effects of medicines. It includes activities such as monitoring the safety of medicines after they have been authorized for use, as well as identifying previously unknown adverse reactions. Pharmacovigilance activities are important for protecting patients and ensuring the safe and effective use of medicines. 

 

The Benefits of Pharmacovigilance 

PV provides important benefits to patients, healthcare professionals and the public. By monitoring the safety of medicines, PV can help to identify previously unknown adverse reactions and ensure that the risks and benefits of medicines are well understood. PV can also help to improve the quality of prescribing and ensure that patients receive the best possible care. 

PV is an important tool for protecting public health. It helps to ensure that medicines are safe and effective, and that patients receive the best possible care. PV also plays a vital role in medical research, by providing data that can be used to improve the design of clinical trials and the safety of medicines. 

 

The Future of Pharmacovigilance 

PV is an essential part of ensuring patient safety. In the future, PV will continue to play a vital role in protecting patients and ensuring the safe and effective use of medicines. 

PV will also become increasingly important in medical research, as more data is generated on the safety and efficacy of medicines. 

In addition, PV will continue to play a key role in the regulation of medicines, as new regulations are introduced to protect patients and ensure the safe and effective use of medicines.
