On June 13, 2008, the Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform hosted a public forum on prescription drug safety and post-market evidence. This public event included a brief overview of current Food and Drug Administration (FDA) activity concerning drug safety; a discussion of a broad-based approach to generating a distributed data network for post-market evidence; and a review of progress to date on a host of technical, legal, and communications-related challenges identified in the course of our ongoing collaborative work in this area.

Mark McClellan, Director of the Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform and Leonard D. Schaeffer Chair in Health Policy Studies at the Brookings Institution, provided introductory remarks and helped moderate this discussion among many of today’s leading health care policy-makers and analysts.
