Pharmacovigilance Special Interest Group
(PV SIG)

PV SIG objectives

The PV SIG aims to bring together EMWA members to discuss and share information and best practice in the area of PV and PV writing via the journal, website, and events at conferences. The group aims to increase dialogue within and between the medical writing community and the Regulatory Authorities (RAs) and acts as a resource for medical writers interested in the area of PV by posting guidance and updates to guidance as appropriate. They liaise with the EMWA Professional Development Committee to advise on additional training for EMWA members in the field of PV writing and PV.
