About ISPE

The International Society for Pharmacoepidemiology (ISPE) is a non-profit international professional membership organisation dedicated to advancing the health of the public by providing a forum for the open exchange of scientific information and for the development of policy; education; and advocacy for the field of pharmacoepidemiology, including pharmacovigilance, drug utilization research, outcomes research, comparative effectiveness research, and therapeutic risk management.

ISPE convenes an International Conference on Pharmacoepidemiology each year, as well as a regional Conference on Pharmacoepidemiology in Asia. The purpose of these meetings is to discuss key issues in pharmacoepidemiology through plenaries, podium presentations and posters as well as symposia where experts address topics of interest in the field. A preliminary day is also scheduled in which educational sessions are available at both basic and more advanced levels. These meetings offer an excellent opportunity for networking and social interaction with colleagues engaged in pharmacoepidemiology in Government, industry and academia.
