The Drug Information Association (DIA) will host its 9th Annual Conference on Contemporary Pharmacovigilance and Risk Management Strategies from Jan. 10-13, 2010 in Washington, D.C.

This comprehensive, three-day program will discuss the current complexities and controversies in pharmacovigilance and risk management throughout all phases of development and marketed use, how to optimally utilize epidemiological, clinical pharmacological and other techniques, risk management strategies, and how to create an effective organizational "system."

Session topics will include:
