Pharmacovigilance Advances: Ensuring Drug Safety in a Changing Environment
Pharmacovigilance, which keeps an eye on the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs throughout their lifespan, is essential to assuring patient safety. Pharmacovigilance techniques and procedures have improved in order to efficiently identify, evaluate, manage drugrelated hazards as the pharmaceutical industry continues to develop in response to the introduction of novel medicines and digital technologies. This review paper offers an overview of current developments in pharmacovigilance with an emphasis on new tendencies, difficulties, creative approaches that improve regulatory decision-making and drug safety surveillance.
