The ultimate purpose of UMC's work in pharmacovigilance is to support good decision-making regarding the benefits and risks of treatment options for patients taking medicines.

We focus our work in this area by:

  • Screening and analysing international adverse reaction data; our aim is to detect, as early as possible, potential issues of importance for patients and public health in relation to the use and safety of medicines.
  • Supporting effective communication of the most focussed, up-to-date scientific information.
  • Providing tools for data entry, management, retrieval, reference and research.
  • Education and training in setting up and running national pharmacovigilance programmes, as well as in using the UMC Tools.
