Course Description

A narrative is a short document that is required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to briefly describe the events in the life of a patient. These narratives are required when a patient enrolled in a study, after taking the study medication or approved drugs (post-marketing), has discontinued the study because of an adverse event, had one or more serious adverse events, or died. FDA, EMA, and International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) guidance documents call for the submission of a study subject’s experience in narrative form for those who meet these specific criteria. This web seminar will provide a set of guidelines, instructions, and templates for the writing of clinical and post-marketing case narratives for reporting adverse events.
