International Clinical Trials

Time to Listen

The new era of 2.0 technologies has welcomed the science
of pharmacovigilance (PV) with increasing interest from
regulatory agencies, pharmaceutical companies, healthcare
providers and patients, who may be seen as the leaders of
this evolution – as consumers of health-related products, the
collective voice of patients is having a significant impact. This
is contemporary to an observed shift from evidence-based
medicine towards real world evidence and observational
studies. In these, a study’s design is more fitted to patient life
than in controlled clinical trials, where eligible participants
must adapt to study settings.

Social media platforms, like Facebook, Twitter, and
Instagram, along with health-related websites and forums,
such as PatientsLikeMe or pharma-sponsored websites,
offer large forums of expression where any health-related
idea or concern may be shared, including adverse events
attributed to medications.
