'Pharmacovigilance and Data: Protection and Promotion'
Pharmacovigilance-related activities are vital for patient safety, and in turn, sharing of information is fundamental in order to enable such practices. Despite this pressing need to share information, current regulatory regimes are sub-optimal, indeed one of the key goals of the European Data Protection Directive was to enable the flow of data. The presentation considers why we need to balance protection of privacy with the promotion of sharing information within ethically and legally robust settings.
