Over two and half days, experts from Brazil and an international faculty will present a mixture of talks, interactive discussions and practical exercises.

The programme will cover topics such as:
· Basic concepts in Pharmacovigilance
· Individual Case Harm Reports (ICHR) and reporting systems
· Establishing Pharmacovigilance systems and major tasks (e.g. Risk Management Plans, Periodic Benefit Risk Evaluation Report)
· Pharmacovigilance and major tasks (signal detection, Post Authorisation Safety Studies, CIOMS IX on effectiveness indicators)
· Special groups of drugs or treatments (vaccines, biosimilars, traditional medicines)
· Steps toward transparency and openness (access to databases, communication in Pharmacovigilance, interaction with media).
There will be ample opportunity to exchange views and ideas in discussions both following individual presentations, after the panel discussion at the end of the course, and during coffee breaks.
