VIG-NEWS: August 2010 Edition
The new edition of the electronic newsletter "VIG-NEWS" of the Federal Agency for Medicines and Health Products (FAMHP) is now available. The VIG-NEWS is a selection of recent news concerning pharmacovigilance from different sources.
VIG-NEWS is a quarterly electronic newsletter aimed at health professionals and written by the Belgian Centre for Pharmacovigilance for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CBPH) of the FAMHP.
VIG-News presents a selection of recent pharmacovigilance communiqués from various sources such as the FAMHP, the CBPH, the Belgian Centre for Pharmacotherapeutic Information (CBIP), the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and other national authorities for medicines, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and literature (e.g. Drug Safety).
This is an initiative launched as part of the "active Pharmacovigilance" project and has been the subject of a test phase with the health professionals involved in the project. From now on VIG-NEWS will be available to all health professionals.
