    Webinar: EudraVigilance and Signal Management Updates from EMA!

    Mar 22, 2018 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM (ET) 

    Register through the link: https://goo.gl/kFo1bf

    Overview

    This Solution Provider Webinar is brought to you by DIA in cooperation with

    Sciformix


    On November 22, 2017, EMA went live with a new and improved EudraVigilance database which was accompanied by updates to GVP Module VI (ICSR and Safety Reporting) and Module IX (Safety Signal Management). While the attempt to harmonize and standardize safety processes is welcomed, some functionality is not working as expected and there have been some unintended consequences of the changes which have led to an increased workload for many MAHs.

    EMA has provided updates and fixes to help resolve the issues and a major upgrade is scheduled in February. Around the same time, the EudraVigilance Data Analysis System (EVDAS) pilot will be complete and fully implemented, so this is a good time to examine all aspects of this new update.


    Continuing Education Credits are not available for this event.

    Featured topics

    • EudraVigilance latest updates: what's new and what to do next
    • EVDAS updates: it's use and implications on signal management activities
    • Industry perspective: how a leading pharma company is preparing for this change

    Who should attend?

    Professionals who work in the area of:
    • Pharmacovigilance and Risk Management professionals, including members of,
      • Pharmacovigilance operations
      • ICSR Submission teams
      • Signal Management and safety surveillance teams
    • Regulatory Affairs
    • Chief Medical Officers

    Getting a product approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) can be daunting, especially for companies that have little experience with this unique and complex process. Within the EMA, the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) conducts a scientific data review and recommends whether or not the drug or biologic should receive marketing authorization. This presentation will walk you through how to prepare for, and manage CHMP meetings to achieve a positive recommendation for your product.


    Continuing Education Credits are not available for this event.

    Featured topics

    • Prepare for and manage CHMP meetings to achieve a positive recommendation for your product
    • Overcome CHMP objections within a limited timeframe

    Webinar: Practical Use Cases of Automation in Pharmacovigilance and Regulatory E-2-E Productivity

     May 9, 2018 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (ET) 

    Register through the link:

    Overview

    This Solution Provider Webinarr is brought to you by DIA in cooperation with

    ArisGlobal


    The regulatory and pharmacovigilance landscape is evolving substantially with the changing expectations from regulatory authorities. With the increasing number of drugs in the drug development pipeline and a parallel increase in the number of drugs being approved by major regulatory authorities globally, the costs continue to escalate. The pharma model for how clinical and safety data are acquired and managed throughout the lifecycle of a medicinal product needs to evolve and explore ways to decrease costs, increase efficiency, and achieve end-to-end (E-2-E) productivity. 

    Drug development and pharmacovigilance have traditionally been predominantly human activities, recruiting large numbers of highly-trained and capable staff. Many hours of qualified staff are taken up performing routine and manual activities. Automation, however, has the potential to transform the current drug development and pharmacovigilance processes. With the incorporation of advanced automated technologies, several manual repetitive tasks can be automated. Therefore, highly-trained staff can focus on higher value work, consequently replacing, in some areas, roles that are entirely transactional.

    This webinar will:

    • Detail how organizations can counter the current challenges in regulatory management and pharmacovigilance
    • Discuss how businesses can become more sophisticated by adopting state-of-the-art cognitive computing processes into their existing systems
    • Address how cognitive computing technologies can automate a multitude of tasks in pharmacovigilance and regulatory, including productivity, compliance, and data quality


    Continuing Education Credits are not available for this event.

    Featured topics

    • Scope of automation in E-2-E regulatory and pharmacovigilance activities
    • Application of cognitive computing technologies in case-processing, including data entry, medical review, and literature surveillance
    • How pharmacovigilance systems can help achieve compliance with changing regulations
    • Understanding the expected productivity gains with the adoption of newer technologies in E-2-E processes
    • How quality of case-processing can be much better using cognitive computing and robotic process automation
    • Possibilities and probabilities of automation supporting regulatory transformation

    Who should attend?

    Professionals who work in the area of:
    • Pharmacovigilance and Regulatory department business heads, and staff
    • Staff working on submissions targeting major regulatory authorities
    • QPPVs, Other business users. IT representatives may get some useful inputs
    • Medicinal product scope includes - Drugs, Devices, Vaccines and Cosmetics

    Learning objectives

    At the conclusion of this webinar, participants should be able to:
    • Describe the role of automation in the day-to-day E-2-E pharmacovigilance to regulatory activities
    • Evaluate the impact of successful automation in conducting the case-processing tasks
    • Describe how automated technologies can enable better compliance with the regulations than the traditional systems
    • Provide evidence of how automation technologies can solve persistence and perennial issues around data quality in systems

    Complimentary: Interactive and Semi-Automated Reporting on the Safety and Efficacy of Clinical Studies


    Overview

    This Solution Provider Webinar is brought to you by DIA in cooperation with

    JMP


    With the increase in size and complexity of the data associated with clinical studies, in particular oncology studies, using data standards, visualization standards, and sophisticated algorithms are necessary to provide medical writers, clinical data scientists, and medical officers with the information needed to perform their tasks in an efficient manner. Utilizing interactive summary graphics to drill down on populations of interest allows clinicians to focus on patients with the greatest efficacy response or safety issues. Upon finding these subjects of interest, medical writers and medical officers can explore their details by generating Adverse Event Narratives or Patient Profiles to understand their impact on the overall results of the study.

    Continuing Education Credits are not available for this event.

    Featured topics

    • Semi Automated Adverse Event Narratives
      • Demonstration of narratives for the Clinical Study Report including for subjects experiencing Serious Adverse Events, Discontinuations, as well as those of Special Interest
    • Tumor Lesion Response Analysis
      • Gain an understanding how regulatory agencies and sponsors interpret results using interactive summary visualization techniques including: Progression Free Survival, Swimmer Plots, Waterfall Plots, and Spider Plots

    Who should attend?

    Professionals who work in the area of:
    • Medical Writers
    • Clinical Data Scientists
    • Medical/Data Monitors
    • Medical Reviewers
    • Data Managers

    Learning objectives

    At the conclusion of this webinar, participants should be able to:
    • Identify how to organize and select relevant supporting information such as concomitant medications, laboratory data, and other associated events that feed into adverse event narratives
    • Understand Progression Free Survival curves and hazard ratio forest plots for patient subgroups
    • Interpret a qualitative tumor response evaluation using a graphical technique called Swimmer Plots
    • Evaluate the patients' overall quantitative "best" response in tumor shrinkage using a graphical technique called Waterfall Plots
    • Recognize patient trends in tumor results and new lesion occurrence across study visits/time using a graphical technique called Spider Plots
