Quantitative Benefit Risk Assessment for the new PSUR and Risk Minimisation

Quantitative Benefit Risk Assessment for the new PSUR and Risk Minimisation
SMi is proud to announce that OXON Epidemiology Ltd will be hosting the Quantitative Benefit Risk Assessment for the new PSUR and Risk Minimisation masterclass taking place on the 2nd December 2014 in Central London 2014-08-20 13:33:41
This full-day Masterclass will provide attendees with the necessary exposure to approach the elements of benefit-risk analysis for the new PSUR in their company for new and old drugs, and approaches to evaluate the positive and negative effects of risk minimisation measures.

The EMA expects MAHs to submit the new PSUR (PBRER) which marks a paradigm shift. The PSUR will change from being largely a document based online listings, narratives and simple sales-based incidence statistics to a benefit-risk tool with a much more statistical and quantitative approach to adverse event data, and including the incorporation of efficacy data. Risk minimisation measures have negative as well as positive consequences and these should be evaluated.

Masterclass leaders include:
- Andrew Maguire, Director of Global Epidemiology & Database Services at OXON Epidemiology’s Centre for Real World Secondary Data, London
- Nawab Qizilbash, Clinical Epidemiologist & Head at OXON Epidemiology
- Ignacio Mendez, Director of HEAOR & Field Analytics at OXON Epidemiology’s Centre for Real World Field Studies, Madrid

The masterclass will aim to provide attendees with:
- The requirements of the European GVP legislation for the New PSUR
- The concepts behind quantitative BRA and why and when quantification is necessary
- The process for undertaking BRA and the evidence and data requirements
- A description of the role of quantitative models in BRA and understand regulatory expectations including the current opinion of the European working groups
- The methodological options available and their pros and cons
- The principles and practice of statistical BRA including the advantages and disadvantages of the principal methods
- A forum to discuss how to implement/optimise BRA for the new PSUR in your company for old and new products, and learn what other companies are implementing
- Approaches to evaluate the negative and positive effects of risk minimisation measures
