The need for Quality
Hearing about pharmacovigilance (PV) and patient safety, both non-professionals and professionals tend to focus only on the safety aspect of the story; most of us were guilty of that at a point in our careers, but what about Quality? Where does it fit, and how does it help?
The "holy" triangle includes safety, efficacy and also quality. Undoubtedly, the quality element should be built into PV to ensure high standards, efficient workload management, the safety of our patients and public health. This article aims to guide readers through the starting points of integrating Quality into PV related processes, focusing on Standard operating procedures (SOPs).
