The Indian Pharmacopoeia Commission (IPC) has conducted a total of 243 training programmes during 2019-20 in areas of Pharmacopoeial Standards, Phytopharmaceuticals, Pharmacovigilance and Materiovigilance as part of Government’s flagship Skill India campaign.

Skill India campaign was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on July 15, 2015, to train over 40 crore people in India in different skills by 2022.

This included skill development programmes, induction cum-trainings, advance-level trainings and CMEs. These trainings have trained as many as 14,354 participants including students, academicians, analysts, healthcare professionals (physicians, nurses, pharmacists and allied health workers), industry professionals etc.

To enhance pharmacovigilance knowledge and skills of the healthcare professionals, the IPC last year conducted several workshops on skill development programme on Pharmacovigilance for Medical Products (PvM) to promote patient safety through reporting of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) and serious adverse events (SAEs).

The programmes covered pharmacovigilance basics, Individual Case Safety Reports (ICSRs), Hands-on-training on ICSRs processing, MedDRA coding, Pharmacovigilance Programme of India (PvPI), Good Pharmacovigilance Practices (GvP), Regulatory Aspects of PV, Materiovigilance Programme of India and Causality Assessment and Quality Review of ICSRs.
Professionals who have been trained on pharmacovigilance (PV) currently working in various healthcare institutions across the country have been motivated to take the onus of disseminating the knowledge and practices of PV for effective adverse drug reaction monitoring.

These programmes will also initiate the process of creating a registry of skills, enable and mobilize a large number of healthcare professionals to acquire requisite skills for not only employment but also capacity building and strengthening of Qualified Persons for Pharmacovigilance (QPPv) as per the requirement of the Schedule Y of Drugs and Cosmetics Act.

IPC under its flagship Skill Development Programme has trained many healthcare professionals including doctors and pharmacists to acquire requisite skills for furthering the Pharmacovigilance Programme of India (PvPI) in the country.

This will also led to further Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana to produce and nurture qualified pharmacovigilance personnel for effective pharmacovigilance.

This has been able to enhance career prospects and employment opportunities in PV in government and private sector, career opportunities in regulatory systems/contract research organizations (CROs) and public health programmes, acquiring basic knowledge in PV and abilities to deliver good PV practices on par with international requirements.
