Event Details

Announcing a new interactive workshop in Point of Care Technologies!

Would you like to…..

….Develop your expertise in analyzing, testing, and validating POC devices?

….Discover what the current state-of-the-art is in POC diagnostics and drug delivery?

….Have experts in cancer and primary care POC work with you on your system?

 

The Center for Future Technologies in Cancer Care is hosting the NIBIB POCTRN Workshop on Future Technologies for Point of Care. The workshop will provide attendees with a working knowledge and practical skill set to assess and apply metrics of success of point- of-care systems in the spaces of diagnosis, device, and drug delivery systems.

Participants

We are targeting graduate students, post-docs, early-career faculty, medical doctors, start-up engineers and others interested in and involved in point-of-care systems. We are deliberately looking for a wide range or participants, and encourage anyone from disciplines across the physical sciences, engineering and biomedical sciences to apply.

 


Content

Topics will include global health, diagnostics, statistics, case studies, as well as clinical needs assessments. Day 1 will start with talks and discussions on the statistical measures of efficacy and how to value point-of-care interventions; barriers to delivery in the US and globally; and a case study. Day 2 starts with an introduction into clinical needs followed by a series of case studies and working groups, covering applications in STIs, cancer, and primary care.

The event will span two days and start off with the week before with online pre-sessions through our edX portal. Workshop leaders will provide engaging video and activities that will introduce the topics and ideas participants will engage with deeper during the two-day workshop. Online sessions will prepare participants from a variety of backgrounds for the workshop, and allow the workshop faculty to spend more time working on your ideas and projects.

About Us

The Center for Future Technologies in Cancer Care focuses on translational technologies that meet a need in contemporary cancer care both in the United States and abroad. The Point-of-Care (POC) can be a home, primary care office, clinic, or other location, provided that the technology enables a task to shift from a more to a less sophisticated setting. Cost reduction is one metric on which technologies are judged, but an increase in positive patient outcomes and/or quality of life should be paramount.  For example, an intervention that allows for chemotherapy drugs to be given at home, rather than in a special treatment center could both reduce costs and increase patent quality of life.
