”To err is human.. but to persist is diabolical”. Indeed, human error is a long standing problem which may have a critical impact on heavily regulated environments such as GMP, GCP and GVP. In pharmacovigilance, case management is the area in which human errors are the most frequent due to the large amount of data that has to be processed manually and due to stringent regulations. Other processes where human errors can occur include PSUR and DSUR preparation, literature screening, and many others.
In this on-demand webinar we explore the main causes of human errors, discuss the ways to minimise the risk in pharmacovigilance processes and present case studies. The webinar is followed by a Q&A session.
What will you learn?
- Most common causes of human errors
- Impact of human errors on pharmacovigilance processes
- How to minimise the risk of human errors
