Is Your Medical Governance Framework Functioning Optimally to Ensure Patient Safety?

Do you have robust Medical Governance that provides timely and effective oversight at the right organization levels to protect the safety of your patients?
Safety Medical Governance, which supports the safety monitoring of products and scientific processes within Pharmacovigilance such as Risk Management or Benefit Risk Assessment, is critical to achieving an informed, single medical voice for the company

  • Lack of cross-functional engagement beyond Pharmacovigilance
  • Unclear situational communication and escalation procedures
