Welcome letter

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the ISoP Executive Committee and the Local Organizing Committee, we are delighted to welcome you to the 21st Annual Meeting of the International Society of Pharmacovigilance (ISoP 2022), “A New Era of Pharmacovigilance: challenges and opportunities” in Verona, Italy from 20th to 23rd September 2022.

Home to a legacy of great traditions, from opera to food and wine, Verona is one of the most visited cities in Italy. A UNESCO world heritage city and home of Romeo and Juliet, it is a place of history, culture, music, and architecture, waiting to be explored. Verona enjoys an easily reachable geographical location in North-East Italy; an inspiring landscape in which to discuss the importance of international pharmacovigilance to health professionals and patients, medicines regulatory agencies, scientific organizations and universities, state authorities worldwide and the pharmaceutical industry.

Several challenges have to be faced in the near future of pharmacovigilance. First of all, the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the direct relevance of pharmacovigilance and proper risk communication during a global healthcare emergency. Second, the development of advanced methodologies (including machine learning techniques) and the availability of large amounts of electronic healthcare data offer opportunities for optimizing drug benefit-risk profile evaluation in real-world settings. Finally, innovative therapeutics have become increasingly available in recent years, often upon accelerated pathway approval. In response to all this, pharmacovigilance must continue to evolve quickly and appropriately to protect patient safety around the world.

The ISoP 2022 Annual Meeting in Verona will be the perfect setting to discuss current challenges and future opportunities in the field of pharmacovigilance, exchanging ideas and experiences between international experts, engaging ISoP’s special interest groups and many global participants with various areas of expertise.

We look forward to welcoming you to Verona in September! Regardless of whether this is your first or fifteenth annual ISoP meeting, we know you will take away many positive learning experiences and also enjoy a very special time with friends and colleagues.
