In India Intensive Event Monitoring (IEM) programme has been used for the adverse event monitoring where the pharmacovigilance officer used to collect the adverse event from the various department of the hospital. The system has many lacunas for reporting the adverse event as fear of personal and organizational liability, labor-intensive, complex, and time-consuming reporting processes, minimal feedback provided to reporters, no incentives, rewards, or motivation to report. There is no study till date which focused on the improving the IEM of the ADRs. The present study was planned to rule out the underreporting causes in the intensive event monitoring and interventional improvement in the same.
The study was carried out in two parts. Part A was carried out to find out the lacunas of the ADR reporting in intensive event monitoring, in part B strategies were implemented to overcome and enhance the ADR reporting through intensive event monitoring method.
The IEM is the important method for the pharmacovigilance; the system can be successful with improved training in the pharmacovigilance and risk perception of drugs. The interest of the health care professionals needs to maintain through the Continuous Medical Education, workshop and conferences on the pharmacovigilance.
