Meetings

  • Return of Research Results: Report Release Webinar Date: July 10, 2018 (11:00 AM Eastern)

    Return of Research Results Consensus Study Report Release Webinar
  • Understanding Disparities in Access to Genomic Medicine: A Workshop Date: June 27, 2018 (8:30 AM Eastern)

    The Roundtable on Genomics and Precision Health hosted a public workshop on June 27, 2018 to explore disparities in access to genetic/genomic services that exist across different segments of the population (e.g., in medically underserved areas and populations, across different racial/ethnic groups, and socioeconomic levels). The workshop discussed model programs of care for diverse patient populations, with a focus on examining current challenges, approaches, and best practices for alleviating disparities in access, which may include the geographic distribution of providers and services and the potential role of telemedicine. Workshop discussions focused on insurance coverage for genetic/genomic services, along with the financial costs for patients of genetic testing and downstream care.
  • Harnessing Mobile Technology to Predict, Diagnose, Monitor, and Develop Treatments for Nervous System Disorders: A Workshop Date: June 5, 2018 - June 6, 2018 (1:30 PM Eastern)

    The Forum on Neuroscience and Nervous System Disorders will host a public workshop to help advance the appropriate use of devices and mobile technology to predict, diagnose, monitor, assess adherence, and develop treatments for CNS disorders
  • Public Workshop of the Committee on the Use of Elastomeric Respirators in Health Care Date: May 22, 2018 (8:30 AM Eastern)

    The Committee on the Use of Elastomeric Respirators in Health Care will host a public workshop on May 22, 2018 in Washington, DC.
  • Advancing the Science of Patient Input in Medical Product R&D: Towards a Research Agenda - A Workshop Date: May 9, 2018 (8:30 AM Eastern)

    An ad hoc committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) will plan and conduct a three-part workshop series to be held over the course of a two-year period. As part of FDA's continued focus on building a national governance system for evidence generation, the proposed focus of these workshops will be on the generation and utilization of real-world evidence to evaluate efficacy, effectiveness, tolerability, and safety for both review of new indications and postapproval studies. These workshops would include presentations and perspectives from thought and knowledge leaders representing a range of disciplines, including but not limited to federal regulatory and funding agencies, clinical and academic medicine and research, medical professional organizations, the regulated biopharmaceutical industry, patients and patient-focused and disease-advocacy organizations, payers, consumer organizations, health systems, and other interested stakeholders that represent the myriad views of those involved in drug, biologic, and device discovery, development, translation, and regulation. The workshop audiences are expected to be similarly diverse, and they will have opportunities to engage in discussion during the workshops.
  • Evidence-Based Practices for Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response Meeting #2 Date: April 24, 2018 (1:00 PM Eastern)

    The meeting will include a session to hear from researchers who have conducted similar reviews and grading of preparedness and response practices in the past to understand the nature of the evidence base as well as the methods used and the challenges experienced; as well as to hear from experts who can inform the prioritization of the public health preparedness capabilities.
  • Implementing Quality Measures for Accountability in Community-based Care for People with Serious Illness: A Workshop Date: April 17, 2018 (8:00 AM Eastern)

    An ad hoc committee will plan and host a one-day public workshop to examine strategies, approaches, and key challenges to implementation of quality measures for community-based care programs for serious illness.
  • Public Workshop of the Committee on the Use of Elastomeric Respirators in Health Care Date: March 22, 2018 (8:30 AM Eastern)

    The Committee on the Use of Elastomeric Respirators in Health Care will host a public workshop on March 22, 2018 in Washington, DC
  • Engaging the Private Sector Health Care System in Building Capacity to Respond to Threats to the Public’s Health and National Security Date: March 20, 2018 - March 21, 2018 (8:30 AM Eastern)

    The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will host a two-day public workshop on March 20-21, 2018 at the National Academies Building (NAS Auditorium) called Engaging the Private Sector Health Care System in Building Capacity to Respond to Threats to the Public’s Health and National Security. Through this workshop, the committee will bring together public and private sector partners to discuss approaches to aligning healthcare system incentives with the American public’s need for a healthcare system that is optimally prepared and scalable to manage acutely ill and injured patients during a disaster, public health emergency, or other mass casualty event.
  • Neuroforensics: Exploring the Legal Implications of Emerging Neurotechnologies—A Workshop Date: March 6, 2018 (8:00 AM Eastern)
