About This Course

Our face-to-face course, complete with presentations, group discussions and case examples, promises to make pharmacovigilance colorful, dynamic, marvelous and interesting.

The aim of this interactive one-day course is to provide an introduction to Good Pharmacovigilance Practice (GVP) for those at the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)/GVP interface.
