Prescription Event Monitoring (PEM) is a specialized pharmacoepidemiological method that plays a crucial role in monitoring the safety of newly marketed medications. It involves the prospective collection and analysis of data on selected medications prescribed in routine clinical practice. PEM provides valuable insights into the real-world use of medications, the occurrence of adverse events, and the overall safety profile. In this article, we will explore the significance of Prescription Event Monitoring, its process, strengths, limitations, and its contribution to enhancing medication safety surveillance.
