Pharmacovigilance – Basic

Pharmacovigilance is a study of pharmacology that deals with identifying, validating, quantifying, evaluating, and minimizing the adverse effects of therapeutic drugs, medical devices, or biologicals, thereby improving their safety. It is a united responsibility of the healthcare experts to monitor a licensed drug and identify its adverse reactions before being consumed by the patients.
