Master Degree Of Pharmacy In Pharmacoepidemiology And Pharmacovigilance

Fees Detail


Pharmacoepidemiology is the study of the patterns and determinants of drug use in human populations. It entails comparison of pharmaceutical interventions for their cost-effectiveness with the aim of optimizing allocation of resources to the most effective and least costly interventions. It involves the application of epidemiological approaches to study drug utilization, effectiveness, value and safety in human populations. It borrows from both clinical pharmacology and epidemiology. Pharmacovigilance, on the other hand, is the science of post-marketing surveillance, quality assurance and total quality management of pharmaceutical health delivery. Health delivery in third world countries is hampered by inadequate financial resources and planning. In many health care systems financial resources are wasted on irrational and inappropriate use of drugs. This problem therefore emphasizes the need to train professionals in pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacovigilance so as to promote rational use of medicines, improve therapeutic interventions and to promote effective utilization of limited financial resources. Specialists qualified in pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacovigilance find employment in academia, research institutions, drug regulatory agencies, health related non-governmental institutions, consumer agencies, national, regional and international health organizations and pharmaceutical industries. They are involved in:- Identification of the patterns and determinants of drug use in a community.
