This blog update is being written from Washington DC where I am at the DIA annual PV and Risk Management Strategies meeting (DIA PV&RM 2017).
It is a very interesting conference as the PV and Risk Management community looks to develop and implement best practice. I am presenting in a session looking at advances in benefit-risk with a particular focus on how we can provide better tools for the healthcare provider/patient discussions on medicines.
I arrived in DC on Saturday, the day of the Women’s March, and the day after the inauguration. I have vowed to keep politics out of this blog, but it was clear that the Women’s March was a passionate event that was joined by women all over the world.
As noted by Hans-Georg Eichler in the opening key note address: We are living in interesting times.
