|Project Title||Developing a Taxonomy of Surveillance Methods for Medical Product Safety|
Friday, December 7, 2012
On December 7, 2012, the Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform at Brookings held a webinar on “Developing a Taxonomy of Surveillance Methods for Medical Product Safety.” This webinar explored how the classification of surveillance methods allows for researchers to determine the most suitable methodology for monitoring medical product safety scenarios. This classification has helped to provide clear and practical guidance for methods selection in active medical product surveillance. Dr. Joshua Gagne highlighted progress in categorizing medical product safety scenarios and developing structured decision tables for methods selection. Dr. Meghan Baker provided an overview of a methods framework for vaccine-specific safety monitoring.
