SAVE-THE-DATE: C17 “Next Generation of Early Phase Trials: Moving the Bar in Pediatric Oncology” educational workshop (Saturday, 4 November 2017)
C17 “Next Generation of Early Phase Trials: Moving the Bar in Pediatric Oncology” educational workshop being held on Saturday, 4 November 2017 in Vancouver, BC. The workshop is in response to the C17 DVL needs assessment that was completed last year as we expanded the C17 DVL network across Canada from 8 to 11 sites. While many investigators and research staff have had experience or education in early phase trials, here was a need identified to provide education and mentorship to research staff conducting early phase trials. With the development of pediatric precision medicine trials in Canada, the need will be even greater.
The workshop is a full day, pre-session workshop at the CCRA Canadian Cancer Research Conference. We hope that most attendees at our workshop will take the opportunity to attend the full conference as well.
The workshop will be designed to educate investigators on traditional models of early phase trials as well as newer approaches to drug development. We will also cover regulatory, ethical, advocacy and access aspects of early phase trials. The workshop will proved education, discussions, panels and time for questions.
Our goal will be to help provide some funding to C17 DVL participating centres to allow investigators and senior research staff to attend.
More details will be circulated once available.
