PV education for universities
Pharmacovigilance is about the safety and safe use of medicines. For good pharmacotherapy practice, awareness on adverse drug reactions is important. This webportal has been developed to advance pharmacovigilance education at medical, pharmacy and nursing schools. It provides slides, background information, literature and educational methods on pharmacovigilance and adverse drug reactions that can be used in existing courses on pharmacology or pharmacotherapy.
