Abstract: Brutal and unexpected, serious injury is a health tragedy sparing no age group. In many countries, including Canada, trauma is the leading cause of death between the ages of 1 and 44, a leading cause of death at all ages, and the leading cause of potential years of life lost [1]. During the past 20 years, advances in many areas of trauma systems, resuscitation, surgical therapies, and critical care support have improved the odds of surviving serious traumatic injury [2]. Among the many possible contributing factors to improved survival is the availability of large-volume transfusion support and improved understanding of trauma-related defects in hemostasis. These contributions have led to critical questions deserving well-performed clinical trials [3]. Recent transfusion management of severely injured military personnel has heightened expectations for the role of blood component therapy in improving patient outcomes [4,5], but evidence supporting the application of these changes to civilian healthcare has not been established and marked variation in practice exists. Transfusion support for trauma patients experiencing hemorrhage greater than one blood volume has not been optimized [6,7].In June 2011 the Canadian National Advisory Committee on Blood and Blood Products sponsored a 3-day consensus conference, during which a field of international leaders presented data focused on six specific questions pertinent to trauma and transfusion support. The six questions were posted for public review prior to the conference and attendees were encouraged to participate in the proceedings. A multidisciplinary Consensus Panel of experts was tasked with weighing information found in the recently published literature and presented at the conference. The panel was composed of three trauma surgeons, two hematologists, two anesthesiologists, two regional blood center medical directors, one trauma nurse, one ethicist, and one clinical trials design expert.

Setting the pace: the 2011 Australasian Podiatry Council conference
Hylton B Menz, Julia Firth
Journal of Foot and Ankle Research , 2011, DOI: 10.1186/1757-1146-4-20
Abstract: The 2011 Australasian Podiatry Council conference (APC2011) was held at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre from April 26 to 29, and attracted over 1,000 delegates. The purpose of this commentary paper is to provide an overview of the conference, including the speakers and topic areas covered, selected original research highlights and award winning presentations.APC2011 featured three international keynote speakers - Professor Andrew Boulton (University of Manchester, UK), Professor Irene Davis (Harvard University, USA) and Dr Edward Roddy (Keele University, UK) - and 10 invited speakers (see Table 1). The speakers attracted considerable media attention, and interviews with Prof Irene Davis and Trevor Prior conducted during the conference can now be viewed at the JFAR YouTube channel [1].In addition to the keynote and invited speaker presentations, a total of 158 free papers were submitted for consideration - the largest number of submissions ever received for an Australasian podiatry conference. A breakdown of abstracts by topic area is shown in Figure 1, which highlights the dominance of research activity in the fields of the high risk foot management and foot and ankle biomechanics. Of these abstracts, 54 were accepted for oral presentation and 61 for poster presentation. Each of these abstracts can be freely downloaded as html text or as a PDF file at the JFAR website [2]. Of particular note, the conference program featured the largest number of presentations of systematic reviews [3-8] and randomised trials [9-13] indicating the increasingly high quality of research being conducted in Australasia.APC2011 also saw the introduction of 'virtual' poster displays using flat-screen monitors, which enabled the presentation of substantially more posters than the traditional hard copy approach. Photos from the conference are provided in Figures 2, 3, 4 and 5.APC2011 featured more original research papers than any previous Australasian podiatry conference. Sel

The potential of generics policies: more room for exploitation–PPRI Conference Report
Sabine Vogler, PhD
Generics and Biosimilars Initiative Journal , 2012,
Abstract: Introduction: This Conference Report aims to provide an overview of key results, messages and conclusions of the Pharmaceutical Pricing and Reimbursement Information (PPRI) Conference with regard to generics.Method: The PPRI Conference, organized by the World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centre for Pharmaceutical Pricing and Reimbursement Policies, took place in Vienna, Austria, on 29 and 30 September 2011, with keynote talks, presentations of policies and research results, poster sessions and panel discussions.Results: Several presentations and discussions addressed the topic of generics (64% of all invited contributions, 46% of the accepted abstracts). European and non-European countries use incentives to promote generics as part of their pharmaceutical policy. Budgetary pressure on policymakers has created a sense of urgency to encourage measures to increase generics uptake (i.e. achieve a higher generics market share). There are considerable differences between the prices of originators and (lowest) generic medicines. Presentations included case studies on how to enhance generics uptake.Conclusion: Although policies on generics were not a specific programme strand of the conference, this was a recurring theme throughout. An important lesson from the conference was that the full potential of policies on generics has yet to be fully exploited. Generics uptake could be improved by a more consistent implementation of generics policies.
