  • Introducing Embase French Local Literature Module Oct 31 2018 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Yvonne van de Vrede, Embase Product Manager
    Please note the new date and time

    Literature is one of the essential sources to identify high quality ADR reports. Regulatory authorities require companies to monitor major international publications through databases, as well as local, non-English content sources in each of the countries where the drugs are marketed. Currently, the local, non-English content sources is not available in most international literature databases, therefore screening, reviewing and monitoring this type of literature costs extra time, money and creates an additional compliance risk.

    In this webinar, Embase product manager Yvonne van de Vrede will discuss:
    -The challenges in Local Literature Monitoring process for pharmacovigilance, with a focus on the French market
    -The concepts of Embase French Local Literature Module
    -How to use this module in Embase.com to build effective searches to identify the mention of drugs and ADRs in French journals

  • Enhancing key PV Solutions to boost the efficiency of drug safety workflows Oct 23 2018 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Sherry Winter, Senior Solution Marketing Manager at Elsevier
    Databases of peer-reviewed biomedical literature and regulatory documents are crucial sources for pharmacovigilance activities. When monitored properly, they yield drug safety signals that are essential for risk–benefit assessments and adverse event reports. However, both are vast resources that can be challenging to monitor efficiently and accurately, especially if different interfaces are needed to access each database.

    In 2018, Elsevier is enhancing key solutions for pharmaceutical R&D as part of ongoing efforts to improve the comprehensiveness, efficiency, accuracy and compliance of pharmacovigilance-focused research. By ensuring that all relevant information is captured efficiently, the company is helping drug safety and pharmacovigilance teams deliver considerable improvements in health-critical workflows.

    This webinar focuses on 2018 enhancements to Embase, PharmaPendium and QUOSA PV, showing how each solution offers dedicated means to boost the efficiency and accuracy of the monitoring of relevant databases, assessment of captured information, and supervision of the workflow. These enhancements include:
    - A dedicated Embase query form for efficient creation and validation of the complex search strings needed for high-recall, high-precision literature searching
    - An Embase French Local Language Module to extend the reach of Embase into specially selected French-language literature
    - More capabilities in PharmaPendium for searching the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS)
    - Even more flexible means to run and oversee GxP-compliant workflows through QUOSA PV, with new functionalities for medical review, signal management and quality assurance. The webinar will address these solutions and enhancements in the context of comprehensive support for the goals of pharmacovigilance.

  • Evidence-Based Searching and Reporting the Search for Systematic Reviews Recorded: Aug 22 2018 63 mins
    Farhad Shokraneh, University of Nottingham
    Search methods are part of the research methods in systematic reviews and evidence synthesis. Running a robust search requires following the existing evidence in selection of databases and search filters, addition of limitations, and inclusion of a search methodologist in your team. While a proper evidence-based search protocol could reduce waste and increase value in systematic reviewing, proper reporting should make your search a piece of science.

    The search methods should be reported in a way that anyone who have access to the databases could repeat the search strategies and search methods (reproducibility) and retrieve the same or very similar search results both in terms of content and numbers (replicability). Following the minimum requirement for reporting the search, the team could produce an evidence-based search method that could be re-used by the readers. The team could also share the search results, as part of their research data, to prevent duplicate efforts for the researchers who want to update the review.

    About Speaker:
    Farhad Shokraneh studied Medical Library and Information Science for seven years and was a clinical librarian in an emergency department for a short time. He worked as a research fellow in Research Center for Pharmaceutical Nanotechnology for two years. Farhad later joined Cochrane Schizophrenia Group in University of Nottingham to manage the largest database of schizophrenia trials and to update over 320 Cochrane reviews. He is also a volunteer with 14 Cochrane groups.

    He ran his first systematic review search in 2004 and continued providing search and consultancy services to academic, clinical and policy making teams around the world for over 2,000 grant applications, clinical trials, economic evaluations, rapid reviews, scoping reviews, umbrella reviews, systematic reviews, overviews, health technology assessments, and clinical practice guidelines.
