Learning and practicing pharmacovigilance in the Mediterranean countries of the EU


Pharmacovigilance consists in collecting and analyzing the adverse reactions to medicines following their market authorization it is an essential practice to ensure public health. The recognition and notification of Adverse Drug Reactions is a complex task requiring knowledge and expertise from both health practitioners and patients.

The Med ePHV project intends to study and develop a new approach to pharmacovigilance practice in order to improve ADRs recognition and notification. The project does not interfere with the pharmacovigilance activity of the European Agency and the National Authorities as the issue addressed by Med ePHV takes place in the periphery of the health systems at the interface between health practitioners and patients.

The research is proposed by a group of SMEs of France Italy and Spain that notice significant market opportunities in the development of on line products and services in support to pharmacovigilance. The new pharmaceutical legislation approved by the European Commission in 2003 aims to an improved pharmacovigilance within the EU and recommends a more efficient ADRs recognition and notification.

The Med ePHV project will focus on the medical culture and practice of three Mediterranean countries France Italy and Spain During the last phase of the project the Consortium will search the most suitable network based application grids models to define the most cost effective platform useful to support a heavy multi user e-learning programme.

As the main project goal is allowing end users to learn and train on pharmacovigilance innovative e learning and to practice in a user friendly knowledge based environment ADRs recognition and notification a key task of the project will be the testing and validation of the on line modules by target end users.

The target market for the SMEs is represented by Local Health Authorities Market Authorization Holders Hospitals Public e Private Health Organizations.
