The Bengt Erik Wiholm Lecture 2017: The Language of Pharmacovigilance

Abstract:
I take it as axiomatic that the words we use and the ways in which we use them are important. Thus, how we communicate information is crucial to the proper practice of pharmacovigilance, and an appreciation of the linguistic problems of so doing is essential. As John Locke wrote, in An Essay Concerning Human Understanding (1690), "He that uses his words loosely and unsteadily will either not be minded or not understood." I have therefore chosen as my subject for the 2017 Bengt Erik Wiholm Lecture "The Language of Pharmacovigilance".
