Meetings

  • Educational Outcomes for Health Interventions: A Workshop Date: June 14, 2018 (8:15 AM Pacific)

    On June 14, the Roundtable on Population Health Improvement will hold a one-day public workshop at the California Endowment Oakland Conference Center focused on aspects of pre-K through 12th grade education metrics that are relevant and potentially useful to the health sector, given the recognition of education as a key influence on health outcomes and community well-being.
  • Understanding Disparities in Access to Genomic Medicine: A Workshop Date: June 27, 2018 (8:30 AM Eastern)

    The Roundtable on Genomics and Precision Health will host 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 may discuss 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 may also focus on insurance coverage for genetic/genomic services, along with the financial costs for patients of genetic testing and downstream care.
  • Advancing Progress in the Development of Combination Cancer Therapies with Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors: A Workshop Date: July 16, 2018 - July 17, 2018 (8:00 AM Eastern)

    The National Cancer Policy Forum will hold a public workshop on July 16-17, 2018 to examine the opportunities to improve the clinical development of immune checkpoint inhibitor therapies for cancer, including in the context of site-agnostic indications.
  • Examining the Impact of Real-World Evidence on Medical Development: Application Date: July 17, 2018 - July 18, 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.
  • Integration of Health Care and Social Services for People with Serious Illness: A Workshop Date: July 19, 2018 (8:00 AM Eastern)

    The Roundtable on Quality Care for People with Serious Illness will host a public workshop on the integration of health and social services and its impact on people with serious illness.
  • Meeting #2 - Committee on a National Strategy for Cancer Control in the United States Date: October 8, 2018 - October 10, 2018 (8:00 AM Pacific)
    Committee Only
    The second meeting of the Committee on a National Strategy for Cancer Control in the United States will be on October 8-10, 2018 at the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center of the National Academies located at 100 Academy Drive, Irvine, CA 92617. All days will be closed sessions.
  • Improving Cancer Diagnosis and Care: The Clinical Application of Computational Methods in Precision Oncology: A Workshop Date: October 29, 2018 - October 30, 2018 (8:00 AM Eastern)

    The workshop will be held on October 29 – 30, 2018 to examine the clinical use of high-dimensional omics data and computational methods in precision oncology research and clinical care.
  • Pain and Symptom Management for People with Serious Illness in the Context of the Opioid Epidemic: A Workshop Date: November 29, 2018 (8:00 AM Eastern)

    An ad hoc committee will plan and host a one-day workshop to examine ways to best address the pain and symptom management needs of people with serious illness in the context of widespread opioid use disorder, including consideration of the underlying socioeconomic factors that contribute to the epidemic.
