For pharmacovigilance professionals, the complexity of monitoring safe medicinal practices are heightened by the rapid development of multiple vaccines and treatments, the emergent nature of knowledge regarding COVID-19, and pervasive misinformation about prevention and treatment practices. Current challenges will have lasting impacts on safety, pharmacovigilance, risk management, and more.

DIA's Global Pharmacovigilance and Risk Management Strategies Conference was developed by recognized experts from the biopharmaceutical industry and global regulatory agencies. This conference provides the background, context, and opportunities to discuss current challenges alongside fresh problem-solving strategies that matter most to professionals working in the field.

2022's Global Pharmacovigilance and Risk Management Strategies Conference invites stakeholders from medicines research, global regulation, and healthcare will join to analyze current challenges for safety in pharmacovigilance efforts, and examine effective strategies for addressing gaps and needs. These new approaches and collaborations build on the foundation of sound pharmacovigilance principles to optimize safety and pharmacovigilance practice, and ensure safe medicines for patients in a global and regional context.
