Menu Back to 10th-Annual-Forum-for-Qualified-Persons-in-Pharmacovigilance


This is the only forum designed for QPPVs by QPPVs, now in its 10th year and ever growing. This year’s objectives, as shown below, build on past successes and have been shaped by valuable feedback provided by participants of the past nine meeting, plus will celebrate a decade of QPPV and Regulator interaction through this Forum.

Over time, one of the key successes of the Forum has been the ability to secure continuing support and involvement of key regulators. Sessions have been open and interactive with attendees appreciating opportunities to raise challenging issues in an informal environment. This 10th QPPV Forum aims to continue to attract such key speakers and encourage open debate.

This year, there will be an enhanced opportunity for networking during a dinner which is included on the conference fee. Grab the opportunity to engage with the QPPV community!
