Social media research brings many opportunities for finding unique, unprompted customer insights and business intelligence. But uncertainty about implementing pharmacovigilance requirements can make social media research risky.

In this webinar, Daniel Ghinn will share a wealth of experience gained through more than twenty years at the forefront of digital health customer research. Daniel and his team have worked to understand the implications of pharmacovigilance guidelines in diverse social media research settings including compiling syndicated research, retrospective conversation studies, live tracking scenarios and research both in public and private doctors’ networks.

You will learn:

  • How to implement the BHBIA and ABPI guidelines on adverse events, product complaints and special reporting situations in your social media research.
  • How to decide on reporting of events and interpret the nuances of social media conversations.
  • Methodologies to provide a safe framework for your pharmacovigilance colleagues, to guarantee they will not be inundated with a wave of adverse event reports.
