The 9th revision of the ENCePP Guide on Methodological Standards in Pharmacoepidemiology has been published on 1 July 2021.
The guide offers a single web resource for methodological English language guidance in pharmacoepidemiology and for each topic covered, direct electronic access is given to internationally agreed recommendations.
The new revision has been extensively amended and re-organised with an improved structure. The Foreword from the co-chairs of the ENCePP Steering Group highlights the importance of the Guide in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccination campaigns.
Nearly all chapters contain relevant guidance on methodological standards to be used in COVID-19 studies, with references to selected publications illustrating relevant methodological aspects.
This version will continue supporting sound pharmacoepidemiologic research, including into COVID-19, and will provide a useful resource for clinicians, marketing authorisation holders and applicants, and regulators.
