The QNPHC and Genome Quebec are almost ready to launch “Genomic 101″ training course for health professionals in order to raise their awareness of the subject and the integration of personalized health care in the health care system. This course should be available this autumn and we would like to reach 1000 participants after one year. We can currently count on financial support from companies, Merck, Novartis, Roche, AstraZeneca and Pfizer.
QNPHC’s Chairman of the Board, David Levine,is pleased to announce that AstraZeneca Canada Inc is now a QNPHC new partner. Jean-Frédéric Lafontaine, represents AstraZeneca on the Board of Directors.
In addition to in-depth scientific presentations, ICPHC 2018 will include:
- A session especially intended for physicians and pharmacists about the rational use of drugs: “the right drug” to “the right patient” at “the right dosage”.
- Time periods reserved for group discussions after the sessions, to bring the conversation further.
- Various talks about the ethical and legal challenges brought forth by personalized health care, as well as the popular perceptions surrounding “patient-centered” medicine.
- A Young Investigators Forum where up-and-coming researchers will get an opportunity to present their research and get feedback from experienced researchers and mentors.
Celebrating the 15th anniversary of the completion of the Human Genome Project, the conference program will help bridge the gap between knowledge and research, and responsible clinical application.
