Our StoryHow it started?
Our Why was not to build "just another" educational organisation in PV. In 2015, we have responded to high demand for "hands on" education where excellent instructors talk about topics they do every day, thus having and sharing the latest and practical insight. Institute of Pharmacovigilance was established as not-for-profit, non-governmental organisation in 2015, to support pharmacovigilance and public health by training, research, publishing activities and conference organisation.
At the beginning, the Institute was offering popular educational events in Czech and Slovak language to complement existing English language courses by DIA, national authorities, and universities. The biggest partner for courses development was PharmInvent. Ever since, the Institute has established reputation for work with high profile professionals in pharmacovigilance field, who have talent for teaching and willingness to share very practical knowledge and skills our attendees can implement immediately.
In 2020, IPV began a very close collaboration with the International Society of Pharmacovigilance (ISoP) on a new and exciting project - Global Pharmacovigilance Professional Certification (GPPC).
The programme has received wide support by ISoP, its Executive Committee and Advisory Board. The proposals have also been shared with the wider membership of ISoP. We intend to follow a transparent process with as wider an involvement of the global pharmacovigilance community as possible.
We continue to cautiously develop each programme and revise the content regularly to reflect the most recent and modern developments in pharmacovigilance, while taking into account the valuable feedback we receive.
Thank you for your support to our common goal – elevate pharmacovigilance profession.
