• Medical affairs
• Health and economic outcomes research
Signal detection has become an important tool for monitoring the safety of medical products and for continuously updating our understanding of the benefit-risk profiles of medical products in use by the general population. The ability to detect potential safety issues through signal detection has evolved rapidly in recent years with advances in technology, data sources, and methodologies. The Basics of Signal Detection and Pharmacoepidemiology module provides an introduction to signal detection in pharmacovigilance.
This module provides information about basic concepts of safety signal detection, currently available safety databases and their characteristics, data mining and the use of statistics in drug safety, principles of pharmacoepidemiology and the context for interpreting signaling results, and signaling regulations and guidance.
Upon completion of this course, learners should be able to:
• Define a safety signal and list the activities in signal management
• List different safety databases and the information each contains
• Explain the use of statistics in drug safety, data mining, and their role in signal detection
• Define pharmacoepidemiology and explain its role in drug safety management
• Explain signaling regulations and guidances in the US and EU, and CIOMS VIII principles for signal detection
