Guide on Methodological Standards in Pharmacoepidemiology

On 3 May 2011 the ENCePP Steering Group adopted the Guide on Methodological Standards in Pharmacoepidemiology, an important tool that reviews and gives direct electronic access to methodological guidance for research in pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacovigilance.

The guide provides a framework for thinking and learning on study design and methods through the presentation of internationally agreed recommendations and key points from important English-language guidelines, published articles and textbooks. The intention is to go further than compile an inventory of existing guidelines and to offer the researcher a single overview document and web resource with a brief introduction or overview of the relevant recommendations. Gaps in guidance in areas important to collaborative pharmacoepidemiology research have been addressed with what ENCePP considers as good practice. The guide focuses on scientific rather than regulatory guidance.
