Signal Detection & Trending in Veterinary Pharmacovigilance, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

The Interactive Webinar Will Focus on the Process of Signal Detection and Trending; The Live Broadcast Will Take Place on Monday, September 15, 2014 at 11:00am EDT (4:00pm BST/ UK GMT +1)

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - August 21, 2014) - Signal detection and trending is a powerful tool used in the management of veterinary medicines. The process of signal detection (Signal Generation, Signal Strengthening, Signal Assessment and Signal Follow-Up) can generate more signals than true signals. Consequently, methods for ranking signals for further evaluation are required.

There are many methods and tools that can be used and focus will be on those that can be done routinely (VeDDRA coding, case assessment, etc.). For this to be effective, it is essential that harmonized standards are used for the coding, management and analysis of pharmacovigilance data. Examples of signal detection using these tools will be included. Regulatory Agencies are also carrying out signal detection and the process used will be outlined.

The presenter, Declan O'Rourke from Ortec Consultancy, in partnership with Drug Safety Alliance (Part of the Ashfield Division), will discuss how signal detection and trending fit into Benefit-Risk assessments and the management of veterinary medicines.
