PVRMS 2020: Thoughts on the January Schedule

It’s January, and that means we are gearing up for DIA’s Annual Pharmacovigilance and Risk Management Strategies Conference (PVRMS).

We set aside time to review this year’s agenda, and we are looking forward to listening and learning as part of this growing community of drug safety professionals.

If this is your first PVRMS conference, here is a quick list of our favorite recurring themes:

1. Regulatory Updates

If you’re anything like us, you want to know what global regulators have on their mind. The PVRMS conference includes global regional updates from leaders in industry and government. This usually includes some of the overarching paradigm shifts in PV as well as tactical changes required to meet regulations.

2. Medical Innovation

Innovations in medicine often require new considerations in clinical and post-marketing patient safety. Monday’s schedule is starting strong with a session on PV for a new CAR-T therapy. We are looking forward to hearing how this treatment will help shape the future of patient safety in addition to medicine.

3. Roundtable discussions

Attendees like conferences for two reasons: to learn something new and to meet other industry professionals. The round-table discussions offer both.
Roundtables give you the chance to meet people with the same challenges as you do– and potentially learn some new solutions as well.

4. Meeting the future leaders of PV

PVRMS offers short introductory courses in PV, so it draws newer talent from all over industry. How many of these people will be speakers in the coming years? We’re looking forward to finding out.

5. Meeting the Orbit Team

Last but not least, come by the Orbit booth to meet the team! This year, President Dan Feith will be joined by Katherine Long, Product Marketing Manager.  We have lots of new features and tools scheduled for 2020 release and we would love to tell you about it.
