Direct Healthcare Provider Communication (DHPC)
A direct healthcare provider communication (DHPC) is defined as a communication intervention by which important information is delivered directly to individual healthcare professionals by a marketing authorisation holderor by a competent authority, to inform them on the need to take certain actions or adapt their practices in relation to a medicinal product.
In general, a DHPC should describe in a clear and concise way any new important information on an authorised medicinal product which has an impact on the medicine’s risk-benefit balance or conditions of use.As such, DHPC complements the so-called statutory product information, i.e. the summary of product characteristics (SPC), package leaflet (PL) and the labelling of the packaging.
The preparation and dissemination of a DHPC is described in the Guideline on good pharmacovigilance practices (GVP) Module XV – Safety communication, issuedby the European Medicines Agency (EMA), and– specifically forthe Republic of Croatia –in the national instructions for marketing authorisation holders issued by the Agency for Medicinal Products and Medical Devices (HALMED).
Overall, communicating safety information to patients and healthcare professionals is a public health responsibility and is essential to achieve the objectives of pharmacovigilance in terms of promoting the safe and rational use of medicines, preventing harm from adverse reactions and contributing to the protection of patients’ and public health.
