Medical Approach in Diagnosis and Management of ADRs    Back

Drug Information Association Course Type: Short courses (CPD) Start Date: To be announced
Duration: Full time - 2 Days Fees/total cost: EUR 1,605.00


This annual training course, considered by many experts as one of the pillars of medical training in pharmacovigilance, focuses on how to use medical knowledge in the diagnosis and management of selected Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs). ADRs of the main systems/organs will be presented and explained by experts in their medical domain in order to provide practical clues to understand and manage the serious reactions in clinical trials a well as in post authorisation. A medical approach is needed for the identification, labelling and understanding of ADR mechanisms. It can also help assess the probability that a medicinal product may have played a role in the occurrence of an adverse event. This is particularly useful for the first 2 or 3 cases of serious reactions occurring during clinical trials when important decisions must be taken regarding a new drug under development. The medical approach presented in this training course will take into consideration the conclusions of international or national consensus meetings on adverse drug reactions. This course can be complemented by Diagnosis and Management of Drug-Induced Liver Injury (DILI) training course, scheduled in the same venue directly after this course.

  • Classify and define drug-induced affective symptoms, skin reactions, QT interval prolongation, blood disorders and acute renal failure.

Participants will complete a knowledge check at the end of the course and will be provided with feedback to ensure learning objectives are attained.
