Use of social media and crowd sourcing data analytics to increase drug safety and public awareness

Query# 16-01: Use of social media and crowd sourcing data analytics to increase drug safety and public awareness

The objective of this study is to assess the value of using social media surveillance for pharmacovigilance in Canada. Analysis is currently underway. A discussion of preliminary results with Health Canada was held in December 2018 where we received Health Canada’s input, which has led to revisions of the preliminary report. Since then we have successfully completed all the required interviews with Health Canada staffers and completed the final report, which was submitted in October. Next steps are to disseminate the results including presentation at an upcoming webinar organized by DSECT.
