PEM in New Zealand

INTRODUCTION

In New Zealand (NZ), prescription-event monitoring (PEM) methodology is the main tool of the Inten-sive Medicines Monitoring Programme (IMMP), a national unit that performs proactive post-marketing surveillance on selected medicines. As outlined in Chapter 24, PEM studies are prospective observa-tional cohort studies, in which cohorts are established from prescription data and adverse events are solicited from prescribers using follow-up questionnaires. This chapter describes how the IMMP has developed and enhanced PEM in NZ and discusses some of the differences to PEM in the United Kingdom.
