Drug monitoring and side effect management have become dinner party conversation topics at parties around the world. The attention forces experts to be brief, and the consequence is loss of details.

This morning, we give the experts time to explain, when we shed light on the side effects of Corona vaccines from a pharmacoepidemiological, pharmacovigilance, biological, medical and regulatory point of view.

We have gathered some of the most important experts in the COVID-19 field. They share their professional considerations and the studies that underlie recent decisions related to the rollout of Corona vaccines.

Hi! Do you need help choosing the right course?

Get detailed insights and take part in a professional discussion of recent crisis management. You also have the opportunity to ask your pressing questions – for example:

  • How do you find the balance between benefit and harm?
  • What happens to professionalism when many and quick decisions must be made on limited knowledge?
  • How to get a true and fair view of side effects based on spontaneous reports?
  • Will the Danish-Norwegian registry study change drug monitoring in the Nordic region going forward?

We have a limited number of physical seats at this seminar, so sign up today.

  1. Insight into the overall pharmacovigilance process from the earliest signal to the regulatory decision
  2. A demonstration of options for actions during a crisis
  3. In-depth knowledge of results and considerations from a Danish-Norwegian register study
  4. Examples of how quickly and efficiently things can change, when we collaborate across professional groups and countries
