This course explores current opportunities made possible by the new legislation, advances in information technology and a new scientific methodology.
This intensive course explores current opportunities made possible by the new legislation, advances in information technology and a new scientific methodology to enhance and modernise the approaches in the product lifecycle management.
The course starts with the current regulatory thinking about the benefit/risk methodology, including the relevant project of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) / Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP). It gives a basis for the second part of the course, exploring the new European benefit/risk management planning - a notion stemming from the experience gathered over five years with the EU Risk Management Plans (EU-RMPs). Participants will learn how to take advantage of the efficacy follow-up options given by both the European Paediatric Regulation and the Advanced Therapies Regulation. A practical training in drafting key aspects of the regulatory submissions is included.
Although a lot of things may be planned and controlled, there are always unforeseen scenarios. The last part of the course will help participants to deal with the most dangerous ones - when the benefit/risk of the product is suddenly affected by emerging information. Participants will be trained on how to deal with such a situation, using the most effective techniques in risk communication and media crisis management.
