  1. 1. AE reporting collection, evaluation, and achievement


     The RPVCs have individual electronic AE reporting systems. Each center builds collaborative relationships  with local healthcare providers to stimulate voluntary AE reporting.


     The number of voluntary AE reports, approximately 1000 reports per year in 2005, has been significantly  increased with initiation of RPVC in late 2006. Significant increase in the number of voluntary AE reports (more  than 3,000 reports per year) within a short period of time testifies the importance of RPVCs in stimulating AE  monitoring.

      angiotensin II receptor antagonists, etc.)

      ➁ Special populations (i.e. pediatrics, geriatrics)

  3. 3. Surveillance of Drug-AEs and Education/Promotions
