As members of the organizing committee, it is our great pleasure to extend to you a warm welcome to the 19th Annual Meeting of ISoP, to be held on 26-29 October 2019 at The Grand Hyatt Hotel in Bogotá, Colombia.
This global pharmacovigilance event will be a fantastic opportunity for Professionals, Researchers, Students, and Patients interested in different areas and disciplines, of all aspects of ensuring safe and effective use of healthcare productsto come together. There will be 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 wich is undergoing continuing development Latin-America over the last few decades, Colombia for example, is a country where Patient Safety and Pharmacovigilance have both gained privileged positions on the international health agenda, as we gained experience of multiple cases of success. Thus it motivates us further in this region to have another ISoP meeting for the third time in two decades.
The ISoP 19th Annual Meeting will be held in a venue suitable for the convergence of ideas, topics, experiences and approaches between speakers, special interest groups and attendants of the various areas of expertise. We are particularly happy and proud in this unique event 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.
