In November each year, WHO organises World Antibiotic Awareness Week (WAAW) to bring attention to the spread of antibiotic resistance. This year, UMC is making a small campaign kit based on our comic Annie & Mac's Adventures available to the public.
This month, Uppsala Monitoring Centre initiated a research collaboration with the Centre for Applied Philosophy of Science at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU CAPS). The project, called CauseHealth Pharmacovigilance, will investigate causation, evidence and complexity in medicines safety. It will be funded by UMC and hosted by NMBU in Norway.
What do UMC's 40 years add up to? Lots of commitment, lots of innovation, lots of ground-breaking science, and a world-wide collaboration network that has taken pharmacovigilance to where it is today.
How can we track side effects to new vaccines that are used in emergency situations? And how can we create an environment where citizens feel comfortable about reporting side effects? In UMC’s podcast, doctor Rebecca Chandler talks about medicines safety in emergencies, and how pharmacovigilance fits into the One Health approach.
The Uppsala Monitoring Centre is proud to announce that the new version of VigiFlow has been launched. The system is now undergoing continuous updates to comply with the latest international standards of ICH E2B(R3) and to offer improved support for entering data of ADR and AEFI reports.
