6.4 Advisory Committees
A multi disciplinary advisory committee is desirable, to support the pharmacovigilance centre with regard to the quality of the procedures in:
• data collection and assessment
• the interpretation of the data
• the publication of information.
An advisory committee may represent the following disciplines:
• general medicine
• clinical pharmacology
• drug regulation and quality assurance
• drug information
In addition a network of experienced advisors in various specialisations is helpful. When the centre is located in a hospital, specialised expertise is usually within easy reach.
