Designing and validating effective search formulas for literature monitoring
There is no room for error when it comes to pharmacovigilance.
The FDA and EMA expect 100% of adverse drug reactions to be found in the literature monitoring process, so your search formula must be designed to achieve perfect recall. At the same time, though, you want to minimize the number of irrelevant records retrieved in order to maintain efficiency. The trick is finding that balance between recall and precision.
In this white paper, you will learn about:
- Creating or revising a search formula so that it achieves 100% recall of ADRs
- What you can do to improve precision in your searches
- Searching both with and without existing historical data
