The Good Pharmacoepidemiology Practice Professional Certification Program will provide the student with a comprehensive overview of the requirements and concepts necessary for a strong understanding in good pharmacoepidemiology practice (GPP), drug safety, pharmacovigilance, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics.
Pharmacoepidemiology is the study of the use and effects of drugs in large numbers of people. It provides a bridge between clinical pharmacology and epidemiology. The increasing demand for real-world evidence of the safety, efficacy and utility of medicinal products has focused greater attention on pharmacoepidemiological research. This program will assist those who plan and conduct such research, and analyze and report the findings, with how to follow good practices in doing so.
Pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) studies provide a bridge between science and medicine in the development of a drug. In this course we move on to describe the role of in-vivo PK and PD studies in a drug development program, set out the uses to which the findings can be put, and discuss their implications for clinical development and application for marketing approval.
This program extends the learner's understanding of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies by detailing the variety of aspects of such studies, including: design, sampling, data analysis, research in special populations, and bioequivalence testing.
This program moves on and explains the regulatory requirements for the reporting of adverse events and suspected adverse reactions in clinical trials. It describes how investigators should report to sponsors, and how sponsors should report to regulatory authorities and other stakeholders in the safety of investigational products. It explains how events are characterized as serious or non-serious, expected or unexpected, and it distinguishes the requirements for each category. It describes controlled vocabularies used for coding of events in reports. Furthermore, this program will set out the legal and regulatory requirements for safety reporting in clinical trials of medicinal products under the jurisdictions of the European Union and the USA.
Individual courses contained within this program are as follows: 1) Introduction to Drug Safety and Pharmacovigilance; 2) Urgent Safety Restrictions; 3) Risk Management Planning for Medicinal Products; 4) Signal Detection and Management in the Pharmacovigilance; 5) An Introduction to Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics in Drug Development and Registration; 6) Conducting Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Studies; 7) Good Pharmacoepidemiology Practice; 8) Safety Reporting in Clinical Trials (Adverse Event Reporting); and 9) Clinical Trial Safety Reporting Requirements in the EU and USA.
Good Pharmacoepidemiology Practice Professional Certification Program includes these 9 individual courses:
Certification Requirements: Students must view the entire program and successfully pass an online, multiple-choice final assessments for each course within a 12-month period. Certificate of completion is accessible in PDF format immediately after satisfying the requirements.
Biopharma Institute certificates and digital badges include the date of completion, but do not have an expiration date. However, compliance training is typically considered valid for a period of 3 years. Many organizations suggest that compliance training should be refreshed at least every three years to stay up to date with regulations, standards, guidelines, and to reinforce the importance of maintaining compliance. The validity or recertification period for employee compliance training would be determined by those responsible for managing quality within the company.
Biopharma Institute's online training courses include immediate access after enrollment. Username, password, and instructions are emailed to the student following enrollment into any program or course. Students may attempt the final assessments any number of times, as needed, to achieve a passing score.
Once all training requirements have been satisfied a professional certification has been achieved and can be verified immediately from our website using a unique ID code located on the certificate. The professional certificate of completion is also instantaneously launched and made available to the student in a PDF format.
Additionally, once the student has completed the professional certification program, a digital badge is issued. The digital badge documents all the courses taken and completed within the program, to further validate the student's achievement.
