Abstract:
This presentation will discuss the emerging epidemiology of adverse drug events within clinical care settings, and the limitations of current administrative data sources for capturing adverse drug event outcomes and implications for drug safety and effective research. We will review recent federal legislative changes and discuss opportunities for researchers to influence the generation of health data.

Learning Objectives:

  • To understand the epidemiology of adverse drug events and their clinical implications.
  • To gain and understanding of the limitations of current administrative data, implications for drug safety and effectiveness research and current validations studies.
  • To identify opportunities to generate better health data.
