New approaches in BR assessment to improve your PV process
What do transparent and robust benefit-risk assessments require?
Transparent and robust BR assessments require engagement from cross-functional experts, good planning and a well-designed process to ensure tracking and documentation of decisions.
How did the pandemic push pharmacovigilance to innovate?
The pandemic pushed PV processes including structured BR assessment to be much more agile to deliver analyses and assessments quicker (in real-time in some instances!) and with the relevant evidence to take immediate actions. Moreover, pandemic pushed the BR balance concept into everyone mind and brought higher level of expectations in term of easy-to-understand tools and messages.
What are the new approaches to benefit-risk assessment and how to apply them effectively?
The new approaches to BR assessment focus on various aspects impacting clinical development and require a very early planning of activities to be implemented during development. For example, integration of patient-centric approach into clinical development can be made to ensure that endpoints that matter the most for patients are measured, that patients’ trade-off are considered, and to address other relevant questions for patients.
