Updated: Jan 25

GOLD Nugget: bonus episode

This GOLD Nugget episode sees Helena reflect on some of the best insights offered by Pav Rishiraj, Director and Head of Pharmacovigilance at Ipsen.

Helena shares some of Pav's thoughts on how the often under-recognised field of pharmacovigilance has changed – particularly its rapid evolution during the COVID-19 pandemic – and its importance as a strategic enabler, as well as Pav's advice on what pharma should do to ensure teams feel valued and integral to the businesses they serve.

Look out for the launch of Season 4 on 7 February, as well as the much-anticipated 2023 pharma forecast coming next week – it’s not one to be missed!
