PROTECT
by IAPO at 5:34PM Wednesday 08 May 2013 (News)

Update: IAPO and the benefit-risk of medicines in Europe
Since 2009, IAPO has been a partner in a European project, the Pharmacoepidemiological Research on Outcomes of Therapeutics by a European Consortium (PROTECT). PROTECT aims to strengthen the monitoring of the benefit-risk of medicines. Here, we share an update on this project and how you can be involved.

WP4: New methods for data collection from consumers
The overall objective of WP4 is to explore the feasibility and added value of modern methods for collecting data directly from consumers.

The PROTECT Pregnancy Study
Recommendations are given to pregnant women about a large number of health and lifestyle choices during pregnancy, including advice about alcohol, tobacco or medicines use. All these recommendations are made with the developing baby in mind, as keeping mum healthy during pregnancy gives the baby the best environment in which to grow. In order for doctors and midwives to have the most up to date information available, it is important to collect details about the health and lifestyle choices women make whilst pregnant.

How can you help?
Are you…
√ Pregnant
√ Living in the UK, Denmark, the Netherlands or Poland
√ Interested in helping improve the pregnancies of other mums by talking about some of the choices you are making in pregnancy
If you would like to take part in this study or for more information please visit www.pregnancystudy4.eu.

About PROTECT
PROTECT is a collaborative European project that comprises a programme to address limitations of current methods in the field of pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacovigilance. The goal of PROTECT is to strengthen the monitoring of the benefit-risk of medicines in Europe. This will be achieved by developing a set of innovative tools and methods that will enhance the early detection and assessment of adverse drug reactions from different data sources, and enable the integration and presentation of data on benefits and risks. These methods will be tested in real-life situations in order to provide all stakeholders (patients, prescribers, public health authorities, regulators and pharmaceutical companies) with accurate and useful information supporting risk management and continuous benefit-risk assessment.
