Pharmacoepidemiology introduces the recent advances in Prague in 2018
With the New Year we are delighted to announce a new interesting congress coming in 2018. The 34th International Conference on Pharmacoepidemiology & Therapeutic Risk Management (ICPE 2018) will take place in the Prague Congress Centre in the latter half of 2018. This event proves that long- term partnership matters, because ICPE 2018 is another joint success of Prof. Jiří Vlček and C-IN´s cooperation.
The organising institution of ICPE is The International Society for Pharmacoepidemiology (ISPE), which is a non-profit international professional membership organization dedicated to advancing the health of the public by providing a forum for the open exchange of scientific information and for the development of policy; education for the field of pharmacoepidemiology, including pharmacovigilance. With members in 53 countries and national chapters in Argentina, Belgium, Denmark, and the Netherlands, ISPE truly provides an international forum of scientific disciplines involved in studying drugs.
ICPE conference is an annual meeting iniciated by ISPE and it usually attracts 1 500 delegates. This conference is engaged with advanced trends in pharmacoepidemiology (P-epi), which is a science started to develop from the end of 60´s. It is a brunch of epidemiology and built good platform for co-operation of physicians, pharmacists, epidemiologist, pharmacologist, statisticians and other professionals.
P-epi studies a use and effect of medicine in specific populations. It focuses on the relationships between patient and medicines in their real live and provides the public, drug authorities and health care professionals information about recent risk/benefit ratio for different population groups, recent safety profile of medicines according interaction of medicine with different population groups and an effect of different handling with medicine by process of prescription, dispensation, distribution and use.
Prague´s conference in 2018 will be held upon invitation of the Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Králové represented by prof. Jiří Vlček, who is the one of the leading persons in the Czech focusing on pharmacoepidemiology and clinical pharmacy. The Czech Republic has a generally strong tradition in the field proved by conferences held in Prague in recent years such as ESCP 2013, ISOP 2015 and ESPACOMP 2015.
All events were supported by organisational services of the C-IN company. Prof. Vlček together with C-IN team members also took advantage of ICPE 2016 in Dublin and met the board to discuss details of Prague´s conference.
Our Aussie colleague Rowen, who belongs to C-IN´s Business Development team spent a good amount of time in several European cities right before Christmas. He kept busy with dealing with potential venues for future events. He summarized his business and travel experiences in the interview below. Does he prefer business partners from Europe or overseas? Why is Brighton closest to his heart? What kind of language difficulties did he experience in Brussels? Read below to find out!
During the 17th – 19thof November, 2016 the city of Lisbon hosts the 20th Annual Meeting of the European Society for Patient Adherence, Compliance and Persistence (ESPACOMP 2016). Even if the title might sound complicated, the event brings highly relevant topics, which examine the correlation between prescribed medicines and the way they are used by patients. Same as last year in Prague, the meeting is supported with C-IN´s professional services.
The Prague Congress Centre is hosting the 6th European Communication Conference (ECREA 2016), the largest European conference on media and communication studies from the 9th to 12th of November, 2016. Holding an international scientific event such as ECREA 2016 is very important in the region of Central and Eastern Europe, where a critical study of media is still a relatively new phenomenon.
Hosted by the State Veterinary Institute in Jihlava, Czech Republic and organisationally secured by C-IN, the 4th Congress of the European Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians (EAVLD 2016) takes place from the 6th until 9th of November, 2016 in the Clarion Congress Hotel Prague. EAVLD brings together professionals with the mission of improving veterinary and public health by providing a platform for communication among veterinary laboratory diagnosticians.
At the turn of September and October 2016 Vienna became a major city for the European dermatologists, when more than 8000 delegates and over 100 exhibitors took part in the 25th Congress of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV 2016). A significant part of delegates also met the C-IN team, which took care of accommodation management all around Vienna, on-site logistic support and networking events.
Today is the start of the 2 day 3rd European Conference on Clinical Research (EUCROF 2016) in the Prague Congress Centre. Following Brussels and Paris, Prague became only the third destination so far to host this event specialised in high quality clinical research. The conference program will focus on patients’ roles and organisations, which increasingly becomes more significant in all medical discussions. Industry development is supported by B2B Meetings with the symbolic title, 'West meets East in Prague'.
