On behalf of the ISoP Executive Committee and the Local Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 19th Annual Meeting of the International Society of Pharmacovigilance (ISoP 2019), “New opportunities for new generations”, in Bogota, Colombia from the 26th to 29th October 2019.
This international event on pharmacovigilance is a fantastic opportunity for professionals, researchers, students, and patients interested in different areas and disciplines to come together with a wide variety of interesting and challenging topics, such as risk communication and management, medication errors, education, social network impact and patient perspectives, and more!
Pharmacovigilance is a fast-growing science of global interest undergoing rapid development in regions such as Latin America over the last few decades. Colombia, for example, is a country where patient safety and pharmacovigilance itself gained a privileged position on the national health agenda, thereby experiencing of multiple cases of success. Thus it is exciting to have an ISoP Annual Meeting for the third time in two decades in the region.
The ISoP 2019 meeting itself will be a venue for the convergence of ideas, topics, experiences and approaches between speakers, special interest groups and participants of the various areas of expertise. We are particularly happy to be present in this unique event and proud to have the opportunity to chair, share and exchange views, expectations and solutions with other high-level professionals, professors, colleagues and friends, representatives of well-recognized universities, institutes and organizations.
Finally, an exciting and memorable social programme will be arranged including a complimentary conference dinner in the Colombian tradition of hospitality.
We hope that you will find the meeting and your stay in Bogota both energizing and enjoyable, and we look forward to welcoming you next October!
With our Best Regards,
Sten Olson, President ISoP
Brian Edwards, Chair Scientific Committee
Angela Caro, Chair Local Organising Committee
