Register now!

On March 17-18, 2015, the VPH workshop on Clinical Data Management and Sustainability will take place in Amsterdam at the premises of the Mövenpick Hotel (Piet Heinkade 11, 1019 BR).

The workshop is jointly organized by p-medicine, VPH-Share and MD-Paedigree with the support of the VPH Institute.

How to manage clinical data and how to sustain the developed technologies after the end of the project are both aspects the EC asks all EU-funded projects to deal with. Each project has so far answered individually to those requests developing its own plan with low collaboration among projects.

Coordinators/representatives from VPH EC-funded projects are thus invited to discuss around the two topics below:

Topic 1: Clinical data management (March 17, 2015, 14.30 - 18.30)
Clinical research has led to a growing demand for patient-specific data and subsequent clinical data sharing and management. Even though some EU legal requirements for data protection and privacy exist, each research project defines an ethical approval process for the use of the patient information and its own policies for sharing the data (internally or externally to the consortium). During the first day of workshop we will discuss the issue of a better and common definition of guidelines for the management, use, and share of clinical data.

Topic 2: Long term Sustainability of developed VPH technologies (March 18, 2015, 8.00 - 12.00)
Most of the large VPH projects are developing software components or an entire ICT infrastructure. While the excellence of the tools developed with state of the art technologies is not under discussion, there is more and more the issue of defining and promoting a concrete and effective long-term sustainability plan. On second day, the issue of a possible joint sustainability path in the VPH community will be discussed.

Registration is free of charge, but mandatory, so should you be able to attend. Please register now.

Considering the limited number of seats available, please note that this event is by invitation only. We will also consider additional expressions of interest to participate to the workshop. If interested, please send an email to: manager@remove-this.vph-institute.org.
