In a continuously growing pharmacovigilance environment, there is an increasing demand for a high-quality level of data entry and medical evaluation leading to ICSRs of high quality.

In this interactive course, you learn how to structure a narrative that captures all relevant clinical and other information to support the reported adverse event and the causality assessment. We discuss a number of ICSRs from various sources (from spontaneous to clinical trials) and assess the causality.
