This presentation will provide an overview of data sources commonly used in pharmacovigilance and drug safety research, and their limitations. We will discuss a new approach to generating drug safety data, and demonstrate a new application designed to reduce re-exposures to harmful drugs, while generating adverse drug event data as a byproduct of safer care delivery. We will discuss the process of creating new health data and how we overcame the challenges we encountered.


Learning Objectives:


  1. Understand the limitations of existing adverse drug event data used for pharmacovigilance and drug safety research in Canada, and the limitation of approaches to validation.
  2. Discuss a new approach to creating new health data as a byproduct of clinical care.
  3. Discuss the process used to create new adverse drug event data, including the partnerships and stakeholders involved, the project management approach to working together, issues of interoperability and implementation challenges.
