This webinar will provide an updated overview of the changes in the FAERS Public Dashboard, a highly interactive web-based tool that allows for the querying of FAERS data in a user-friendly fashion. These changes includes displaying report counts by quarter and month, search by reactions and data export. The intention of this tool is to expand access to the FAERS data to the general public to search for information related to human adverse events reported to the FDA by the pharmaceutical industry, healthcare providers and consumers. FDA anticipates that this increased transparency will help to spur the submission of more detailed and complete reports from consumers, health care providers and other members of the public.
