PMS is conducted by different types of organizations and agencies, including pharmaceutical manufacturers, universities, government agencies, private companies, and consumer advocacy groups. The purpose of conducting PMS may differ, depending on the perspective of the individuals conducting the surveillance. It is including definition and purpose, available methods, and several examples of the application of PMS in clinical practice.
