MARSQA Lunch & Learn Webinar: A Crash Course on Pharmacovigilance

Presented by Larry Thomas

Pharmacovigilance is the single most important quality system related to patient safety, yet many QA professionals are more familiar with GCP/GLP than GVP (Good Vigilance Practices). In this session, we will take one step towards changing that! From an overview of pharmacovigilance and a discussion of the basics of the key elements of a PV system, attendees will come away with an understanding of the fundamentals of pharmacovigilance and GVP – including PV audits.

    MARSQA Board Meetings

    MARSQA Board of Directors (BoD) members and Committee Chairs/Co-Chairs meet monthly through teleconference/other available technology, to discuss activities planned for the year, and to manage general organizational tasks. The BoD teleconferences typically occur on the third Thursday of every month, for one hour. Occasionally, face to face Board of Director meetings may occur just prior to a Membership Meeting when possible. Meeting agendas are developed for each meeting, and meeting minutes are used to capture discussion points, BoD decisions, items for follow up, and voting outcomes.

    Please contact the Board with any questions or concerns you’d like to bring forward!

    MARSQA Awards

    Every year, MARSQA offers two awards: RQAP and SQA. As the new year is upon us, we will soon be looking for nominations for each of these honors. Please keep this in mind!
