IPV Case Management Specialists collect and evaluate information from patients and healthcare professionals to try and identify new information about the use of medicines and any side effects experienced by patients.
Safety monitoring of medicines is a continuous process, it is performed during clinical trials when medicines are developed, once medicines are launched (also called ‘licensed’) and throughout the entire period where a medicine is available for patients to use. The team is the first point of contact within the company for incoming adverse event reports. The department also monitors our pharmaceutical products across their lifecycle, from clinical trials through to post-marketing surveillance, in order to detect, assess, understand and prevent adverse events.
