German term or phrase: Anwendungsbeobachtung
Does anyone know the English term for "Anwendungsbeobachtung"? ( i.e. study of side effects etc with the routine use of a drug that is already licensed, using a non-selected patient collective)

Thank you very much in advance

Explanation:
This term appears on all drug advertisements in medical journals. If the information is printed on a sheet included with the drug it is known as a package insert.

Thanks for taking the trouble to help! In this case, it was not the correct translation however, I now know that this is called "treatment study" in English.

observational study


Explanation:
This is how it is most often translated on Medline. "Surveillance or monitoring study" would probably also be understood. It appears to refer to observing the effects of a drug under practical, "real-life" conditions, rather than the idealized, structured conditions of a clinical trial.
