HEALTH CARE RECORDS FROM LARGE DATABASES AS A TOOL TO STUDY THE USE OF MEDICINES

The availability of health information contained in large databases has widened the scope of drug utilization studies and pharmacovigilance. Large databases have some advantages and disadvantages, as well as limitations and biases that researchers should know either for the design and interpretation of the obtained results.

This course intends to give you expertise in discussing most common problems.

FROM INDIVIDUAL CASES TO THE COMMUNITY IMPACT OF ADVERSE DRUG REACTIONS: MEASURING TOOLS

The knowledge of the population exposed to a given medicine and the characteristics of the exposure are the basis to estimate the potential impact of a given adverse effect on a community.

This course intends to describe you the essential information allowing the calculation of this impact.

RISK MANAGEMENT PLANS: THE VALUE OF CONCOMITANT MEDICATION

A detailed knowledge of how a given medicine is used in real clinical practice is an important part of risk management plans. In addition to quantitative consumption data, a qualitative approach to know how a given medicine is, prescribed, administered or consumed.

This course intends to widen this essential knowledge, and this including common co-medications.

INTERPRETATION OF DRUG CONSUMPTION DATA - USES AND LIMITATIONS IN COMMON PRACTICE

There are different sources of drug consumption data, but not all-available information is useful to make an inference on how target medicines are prescribed or consumed.

This course intends to give you knowledge of the minimum important information needed for being able to conduct an unbiased analysis.

BONE FRACTURE ASSOCIATED WITH COMMON MEDICATION - AN EXAMPLE OF THE PUBLIC HEALTH IMPACT ESTIMATION

Different medicines increase the risk of falls (e.g., sedatives, antidepressants and antihypertensives), and some commonly used medications increase this risk of bone fracture (e.g., proton pump inhibitors, corticosteroids). The public health impact is significant of the combination of both adverse effects is important.

Through this case study, this course intends to help you in doing an appropriate estimation of the public health impact considering that this example can be extrapolated to other adverse effects.

INTEGRATING PHARMACOVIGILANCE AND CONSUMPTION DATA ANALYSIS - USES, LIMITATIONS AND POTENTIALITY

The impact of a given adverse effect associated with the use of a drug depends on different factors. The characteristics of the use of that medicine are important factors for the prevention or minimization of some risks.

This course intends to enable you to discuss on different available variables, considering their limitations, biases and potentiality.

English
FROM INDIVIDUAL CASES TO THE COMMUNITY IMPACT OF ADVERSE DRUG REACTIONS: LIMITATIONS

There are several factors that limit the possibility to estimate the community impact of an adverse drug effect associated with a given medicine.

This course intends to conduct a detailed discussion of the potential limitations helpful for avoiding or minimizing mistakes in estimations or misinterpretations while designing studies.

English
RISK MANAGEMENT PLANS: THE EFFECTS OF INAPPROPRIATE USE OF THE TARGET MEDICINE

In ideal situations, medicines are used following the recommendations and avoiding contraindications of use, but this is not the case of real practice.

By knowing detailed knowledge of the extension and circumstances of the inappropriate use of a medicine of interest, this course intends to help you to avoid unnecessary risks.

English
IDENTIFICATION OF DISPENSABLE AND REDUNDANT MEDICATION IN THE POPULATION

Different studies show that a not so negligible part of the population is taking medicines that are no longer needed, duplicate active ingredients or concomitant active ingredients with similar effects.

This course intends to let you know how to identify these cases and to make a plan to adjust the medications considering the public health point of view.

English
INTRACRANIAL BLEEDING ASSOCIATED TO MEDICINES - FROM SYSTEMATIC REVIEWS AND META-ANALYSES TO CONSUMPTION DATABASES

Intracerebral haemorrhage is a severe condition more frequent in the elderly and associated with the use of anticoagulant drugs. The concomitant use of frequently prescribed medicines such as antidepressants or proton pump inhibitors could increase the risk.

This course intends to teach you how consumption databases help to estimate the impact of intracerebral bleeding in a given population.
