Pharmacoepidemiology requires the utilization of database resources to evaluate drug safety. This course defines the different types of data resources available for pharmacoepidemiology and the selection criteria to select the most appropriate resource. The course focuses on the Guidelines for good database selection and use in pharmacoepidemiology research, provides an overview of available resources, addresses the need for outcome validation, and highlights data linkage considerations.
