Topic outline

  • Introduction

    As a teacher in clinical pharmacotherapy, we all want to educate our students with the most effective pharmacovigilance education as possible. Unfortunately, according to a recent review and web-based questionnaire, although we think we are providing our students with the best possible education, they still feel particularly unprepared for their prescribing and pharmacovigilance responsibilities and lack basic pharmacovigilance skills and knowledge. This can be attributed to the limited quantity and quality of pharmacovigilance teaching, if any, in current healthcare curricula. With the limited time available in overfull healthcare curricula, clinical pharmacology and pharmacovigilance educators should focus on spending their time most effectively to achieve their learning outcomes. This requires new and innovative teaching methods, such as maximally enriched context, providing real responsibility for authentic tasks, and collaborating in an interprofessional team. The Dr.Vigilance teaching guide, also discussed in this podcast, provides pharmacovigilance educators with high-quality, ready to use teaching resources on clinical pharmacovigilance, with a focus on pharmacovigilance activities in individual patient care.
