Drug Safety & Risk Management

May 21 - 23, 2008 | National Harbor, Oxon Hill, MD



Dear Colleague,

When was the last time you sat in a room with 50 senior level pharmaceutical risk management leaders? Or when was the last time you were privy to the outcomes of a “Meeting of the Minds” risk management working group? Now the first time, 50 of the key industry risk management leaders will convene to discuss their concerns, best practices, and next practices in dealing with managing risk under the microscope of post-approval regulation.

The Exclusive Invite-Only Executive Task Force will convene on May 21, 2008. Moderated by Christopher-Paul Milne, Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development, this comprehensive day will cover your most pressing issues in an informal discussion format.
I. Developing a Risk Management System
II. Lifecycle Management Approach to Drug Safety
III. Balancing the Benefi t/Risk
IV. Global Risk Minimization


On May 22nd and 23rd, 2008, the fi ndings of the Executive Task Force will be presented by a panel from the summit working group during the main conference.
