Pharmacovigilance training programmes- a fierce discipline

Drug safety” a worn term with its synonym that is now known as “Pharmacovigilance”(PV) in the clinical & pharmaceutical industry. For a common man to identify with what pharmacovigilance means, could be out of his means to comprehend. To address what defines Pharmacovigilance is, “The analysis to scrutinise a drug & its action that are anticipated for human purpose.” The Indian Pharmacopoeia Commission (IPC), which serves as an autonomous organization for the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, exercises to scrutinize the standards that are set to manufacture, vend & consume drugs in India. In a recent press release, it announced that by 2014-15 there will be an increase of several Adverse Drug Reaction (ADR) centres across the nation of India to serve a strong purpose of monitoring the drugs that are being manufactured for trade to be squandered by the citizens here. IPC executes itself as the National Coordinating Centre (NCC) and also aims to reinforce what’s called the “Pharmacovigilance Programme of India (PvPI). In addition, the Indian Pharmacopoeia aims to entrench & intricate pharmacovigilance programs across the globe. There exists a dearth of professionals for hourly updates of adverse drug reaction reports post-marketing of drugs in the market. Currently, the statistics of India show that there exists about numerous medical colleges, hospitals & laboratories across the country that are registered by the Pharmacovigilance Programme of India.
