Expanding sources of evidence for better signal detection – New podcast out now

Research / 23 February 2023

In this digital age, can pharmacovigilance experts leverage on new types of data to find evidence for signals? Listen to the latest Drug Safety Matters podcast to find out.

Spontaneous adverse drug reaction reports have been the proverbial ‘bread and butter’ for signal detection since the beginnings of pharmacovigilance. But times are changing, and with the abundance of data now available in a society that has gone digital, it is time to explore new data sources to detect signals.

Join Federica Santoro and Daniele Sartori, a pharmacovigilance scientist at UMC and doctoral researcher at the University of Oxford, discuss expanding sources of evidence for more reliable signal detection.
