Join us for an engaging and dynamic dinner meeting to discuss topics focused on the requirements of patient safety, pharmacovigilance, medical device vigilance and impact of these activities on other functional areas. The agenda includes a presentation from Jay M. Ehrlich, MD, Vice President / Global Patient Safety, Baxter Healthcare Corporation to include:

  • What is “patient safety” with respect to drugs and devices, and why should I care?
  • Changes in the regulatory landscape in drug and device vigilance globally
  • How does a Safety organization position itself (org design, interfaces) for maximal effectiveness collaborating with other functions (Quality, R&D, Regulatory, Operations, etc.)?
  • Industry trends


    05:30 PM Registration, Cocktails and Networking
    06:30 PM Dinner
    07:00 PM Presentation by Jay M. Ehlrich, mD, Vice President, Global Patient Safety, Baxter Healthcare Corp.


    Do you frequently see “patient safety” or “pharmacovigilance” people in your meetings or attached to your email chains?
    Who are these people? Why are they here? What do they do? And why do I need to know?
    Trust me… you need to know. Why? Recent regulatory changes across the globe have increased the scrutiny on companies around the impact of certain decisions being made across functions that may have impact on the end user of our products: healthcare professionals and patients.

    Only with an understanding of what has changed and when you should ensure inclusion of your “Safety” function can you protect yourself, your function and your company against pitfalls that will result in inspection/audit findings, product impacts, delay or failure to launch new products (or keep existing products on the market), or potential patient harm.


    The event includes cocktails, dinner, and networking.
