With significant spending cuts and an emphasis toward the Commonwealth government living within its means, 2014 will be an economically challenging year in a climate of deepening deficit and declining growth, as the mining boom subsides.

The impact this will have on the direction of future healthcare reform and its influence on the healthcare system raises several questions.Amongst this economic backdrop, 2014 presents itself as critical year in relation to the PBS as negotiation for the sixth Community Pharmacy Agreement commences for a July 2015 commencement.

With the end of the current Agreement marking 25 years of the current CPA policy framework, the 11th annual Future of the PBS Summit marks a wonderful opportunity to review past, present and future frameworks in light of achieving preferred outcomes in a new Agreement. This will present an occasion not to be missed for pharmacy regulators, pharmaceutical companies and wholesalers, practitioners, educators and consumers.

Event Title: Effective Complaint HandlingMedical Device Reporting and Recalls
Event Date or Start Date: 5/8/2014
End Date: 5/9/2014
Country: UNITED STATES
State or Region: MD
Meeting Website: View more information
Additional Meeting Information: This is 2-day in-person seminar in Baltimore, Maryland. An effective complaint handling system is an extremely important part of any quality system. Manufacturers should understand that any complaint received on a product shall be evaluated and, if necessary, thoroughly investigated and analysed, and corrective action shall be taken. The results of this evaluation should lead to a conclusion regarding whether the complaint was valid, what the root cause of the complaint was, and what action is necessary to prevent further occurrences. Complaints cannot be ignored. They are an excellent indicator of problems with the use, design, and/or manufacture of a product. A single complaint that is thoroughly investigated may lead a company to take remedial or corrective action. It may also take an ongoing analysis of numerous complaints before a trend is spotted that causes a company to initiate changes in their product, labeling, packaging or distribution. The regulatory expectations for both pharmaceuticals and medical devices will be emphasized as well as overview of best practices for timely and effective investigations. Trending is the only way a company can stay on top of emerging quality issues and address those that are most pressing.

Additional Meeting Information: Since the European Pediatric Regulation was introduced in 2007, companies developing new medicinal products or new indications/routes of administration/pharmaceutical forms are obliged to present age-appropriate formulations for the pediatric population within a Pediatric Investigation Plan (PIP) to the European Medicines Agency. Pediatric drug development has become an essential part of drug development in general, it is a very complex area encouraging coherent strategies and close collaborations and communications between industry and health authorities.

This half day masterclass under the expertise of Klaus Rose Consulting, will provide a focus on: pediatric clinical trials, legislation considerations, Paediatric Investigation Plan (PIP) and the impact of pediatric legislation in both US and EU.

Why You Should Attend:
Whatever your position in drug development, you should have sufficient background knowledge. You might be directly involved in PIPs, you might be asked for advice, or you might work in a management, regulatory affairs, technical or clinical development position; without background understanding you might miss job opportunities or not have sufficient background for good decisions.

Additional Meeting Information: Antimicrobial resistance is perceived as an increasing threat to health and well-being globally. This is not a new message—it is one that has been repeated many times over the past three decades. What is new today and is the problem reaching a level where front line treatment is regularly failing to control bacterial infections in patients. Currently there is limited research by the major pharmaceutical companies on new drug targets and concomitantly, few new anti-microbial agents under clinical trials.

Additional Meeting Information: The XXIII International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC-ISMC 2014) will be organised by the Group of Medicinal Chemistry of the Portuguese Chemical Society (SPQ) on behalf of the European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC). The symposium will take place at the Lisbon Congress Center from September 7-11, 2014.

The 2014 edition will continue the tradition established by these biennial symposia and will cover drug discovery advances in the major therapeutic areas, including neglected diseases, CNS disorders, inflammation, metabolic disorders, and oncology. EFMC-ISMC 2014 will present the most recent advances in lead identification and optimization strategies, drug design and profiling technologies, and illustrate the impact of biomarkers and imaging at the interfaces between chemistry, biology and experimental medicine. Particular emphasis will be put on first time disclosures, recent highlights in medicinal chemistry, and organic synthesis which had a strong impact on medicinal chemistry.

Additional Meeting Information: The 45th Annual Meeting of the Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society (EMGS), will be held September 13–17, 2014, at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista, in Orlando, Florida. This year''s theme is “Integrating Environmental, Genomic, and Health Research.” The meeting will provide a forum for the latest research on DNA damage and repair, mechanisms of mutagenesis, epigenetic regulation, and their contributions to environmentally–induced human disease. In addition, current regulatory issues and risk assessment strategies will be discussed. EMGS is unique in that it provides a platform for the cross-disciplinary integration of basic and applied sciences that provide an understanding of the impact of genetic toxicity on human populations. The goals of this meeting are to 1) build on our past contributions to the field of environmental and molecular mutagenesis and DNA repair and more fully understand the role of epigenetics in these basic mechanisms; 2) integrate applied genetic toxicology with basic research in DNA damage and repair, toxicogenomics, and epigenetics; 3) determine how emerging technologies can lead to a better understanding of environmentally-induced genetic disease; 4) have these data serve as a foundation for human risk assessment for disease and disease prevention; and 5) aid in the support of knowledge-based regulation to protect public health and the environment. This is a meeting not to be missed. For additional information, visit the EMGS 2014 Annual Meeting website.
