Regulators around the world have expanded their investment and policy frameworks in the development of tools to assess both pre- and post-market safety evidence. These efforts have expanded with the implementation of a number of International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) guidelines including ICH E2E Guideline. The tutorial is intended to provide participants with an overview of the 2014 Health Canada Draft Guidance Document entitled: “Risk Management Plans and Follow-up Commitments.” Additionally the assessment of benefit-risk of medicines needs careful consideration concerning their patterns of utilization; a component that is increasingly becoming an integral component of risk management planning. The course will therefore provide a training on Drug Utilization Studies (DUS) in addition to a discussion of alternative options in situations where full DUS are not feasible.

Learning Objectives 

At the conclusion of this tutorial, participants should be able to:

  • Explain Health Canada expectations in relations to Risk Management Plans
  • Discuss main principles and limitations of DUS
  • Explain Health Canada expectations of DUS
  • Recognize situations where alternatives can be considered when full DUS are not attainable
