Keywords: Bayesian statistical model, pharmacovigilance

Several examples are presented of how Bayesian statistical models and methods have been applied to several types of pharmacovigilance situations: Spontaneous reports, AEs from clinical trials, Longitudinal patient health records, meta-analysis, and more, with an emphasis of providing insight into why the Bayesian paradigm has been successful within this class of problems.
