The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, under cooperative agreement with the Robert J. Margolis, MD, Center for Health Policy at Duke University, is hosting the 14th annual Sentinel Initiative Public Workshop on November 15 and 16, 2022.

The workshop will be a virtual webinar and will provide an opportunity for attendees to discuss recent achievements and developments as well as engage with the broader community of patients, consumers, and scientific stakeholders. 

The public workshop will feature a keynote from Dr. Patrizia Cavazzoni, director of the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. Participants will also hear from Sentinel Initiative leadership on a range of key issues including recent studies and applications of Sentinel to protect and promote public health during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and emerging monkeypox public health emergency.

The Sentinel Initiative was launched in response to the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007 and Congressional mandate that FDA develop a national electronic system to track the safety of regulated medical products. Since its inception, the Sentinel Initiative has continued to refine and expand its data infrastructure and capabilities. In recent years, new analytical tools and enhancements to data methods have unlocked access to more diverse sources of data to improve the quality of evidence for safety surveillance operations.
