Pharmacovigilance and drug safety relate to the detection, assessment, understanding and prevention of adverse events (possible side effects) of a medicine. In industry, pharmacovigilance is the science of monitoring medicines, collecting information, researching, assessing and evaluating information on potential drug-related adverse events, in order to prevent unwanted side effects and understand the risks and benefits of a medicine.
Pharmacovigilance and drug safety jobs can vary depending on the type of company for which you work. However, the main purpose of a drug safety role is to monitor unexpected side effects of a medicine during clinical trials, and after the product is marketed. Pharmacovigilance professionals will also collect and evaluate information from patients and healthcare professionals to understand the risks and benefits of a medicine and to promote the safe use of a medicine. They will report any potential issues to regulatory authorities in accordance with employer, sponsor and government safety regulations and policies.
Drug safety candidates are expected to have a degree level qualification in a scientific discipline. Candidates are normally required to have core competencies such as effective time management, good communication, analytical and problem solving skills as a baseline.
Drug Safety is a highly specialised field and ProClinical represents some of the most exciting roles in pharmacovigilance and drug safety for world-leading pharmaceutical, clinical research and biotechnology companies.
