The Indian Pharmacopoeia Commission (IPC) will run a series of skill development programmes (SDPs) on pharmacovigilance (PV) of medical products in May, August and November 2023.

One SDP is scheduled between May 15 and May 19 with the other two scheduled between August 7 and August 11 and between November 20 and November 24, 2023.

IPC is the National Coordination Centre (NCC) for the Pharmacovigilance Programme of India (PVPI) and WHO-Collaborating Centre for Pharmacovigilance in Public Health Programmes and Regulatory Services.

The objective of these SDPs is to enhance PV knowledge and skills of the healthcare professionals, who in turn promote patient safety. Target Groups for the SDPs are young pharmacy, medical and paramedical professionals seeking career in PV and also existing professionals in PV.

This will enhance career prospects and employment opportunities in PV in the government and private sector. This would also enhance career opportunities in the regulatory system, contract research organisations (CROs) and public health programmes.

This would also develop abilities to deliver good PV practice at par with international requirements and provide a platform for being an entrepreneur in PV.

Expected outcomes of the SDPs are to acquire basic knowledge in PV, creating a workforce at national or international level to meet challenges in PV, enable and mobilize a large number of health care professionals to take up training and acquire requisite skills for employment.

Capacity building and strengthening of Qualified Person for Pharmacovigilance (QPPV) as per the regulatory requirements is also one of the main of the SDPs.

Course content of the SDPs include Pharmacovigilance: Basics, Objectives and Methods, ADRs: Understanding, Prevention and Reporting, Understanding of Individual Case Safety Reports (ICSRs), Materiovigilance Programme of India: Causality Assessment and Quality review, Signal Detection and Assessment, PV based Regulatory Action-Application of IT tools, Adverse Events Following Immunization (AEFI), Periodic Safety Reports: PSURS/PBRERS etc.

As per the IPC notice, "Interested candidates may get registered via online application form in the prescribed format available on www.ipc.gov.in. The duly filled application form along with payment receipt shall be submitted". Application shall be processed on "First-come-first-serve" basis.
