Shaping Drug Safety Stories
What Does Drug Safety Mean from the Patient’s Perspective?
Rakesh Raman, M.D., Senior Director, Head of Medical Safety at REVOLUTION Medicines, joined the Safety Signals Podcast when he was in a similar position at Mirum Pharmaceuticals for a lively discussion about the importance of knowing everything possible about how a drug impacts a patient’s lifestyle.
In this episode of Safety Signals, we cover a variety of topics, such as:
– How focusing on improved signal detection, drug class comparisons, and natural disease history can provide a fuller picture of drug safety
– Why it’s important to analyze data in terms of how it impacts a patient’s life and provide patients with management guidelines for dealing with potential side effects
– Techniques for working with regulators as partners, not police
According to Dr. Raman, “if the motivation is always on doing what’s right and best for your patients, it sort of triggers that level of creativity and ambition to go and find the best possible sources and tools to be able to do our jobs the best that we can.”* The views of the hosts and guests featured on Safety Signals are their own and do not necessarily reflect the views of Saama or the individual companies for which the guests may work.
