The aim of SOHOV&S is to support EU MS in the establishment of Vigilance and Surveillance(V&S)systems for tissues and cells in transplantation and in assisted reproduction. MS with most experience will facilitate less experienced in the implementation of systems. The guidance can be translated and used as basis for national procedures. The training will ensure that officials who have recently been given these responsibilities will quickly be able to fulfil them. The project will drive harmonisation in terminology, investigation approaches, facilitating communication and cross-border management of serious adverse events and reactions (SAR/E). WHO involvement will extend this outcome to a global scale. The training will provide EU investigators to react effectively and efficiently to SAR/E. The guidelines for clinical users will support MS in the efforts to inform clinicians of roles and responsibilities in relation to V&S. Awareness on V&S will be raised via the project website and the enhancement of the Eurocet platform to include data on V&S activities.
