2nd Annual Celebrating Clinical Research Participants and Professionals at Providence Health Care

In recognition of Research Administrators Day 2019, we will take the opportunity to thank the hard-working clinical research professionals working at Providence Health Care and provide them with an occasion to discuss their profession. In addition, there cannot be research professionals without research participants and at this event we will both thank the participants and provide them with the opportunity to talk about their experience participating in research.

Research professionals and participants from:

  • Pulmonary Fibrosis/COPD Research
  • Hematology/Oncology Research
  • Anesthesia Research
  • Cardiology Research

Opening remarks from Dr. Darryl Knight, President, PHCRI

If you would like to attend, please RSVP by September 10 to communications@cheos.ubc.ca.

Surgical Innovation: A clinician scientist’s journey

Pelvic organ prolapse is a common disorder of aging women, with one of five women requiring surgical correction in her lifetime. Current surgeries can be associated with high prolapse recurrence rates or unwanted serious side effects. Synthetic materials, such as polypropylene mesh, have been used to improve surgical durability but they have not always been subjected to rigorous research before widespread implementation. Historically, surgery has been a discipline of trial and error. Life-saving interventions with obvious clinical need made comparative assessment of procedures unimportant for many decades. More recently however, surgeries aim to improve quality of life and surgical innovation needs to follow an evidence-based pathway. Barriers to surgical research include patient or surgeon preferences, the complexity of interventions and the paucity of clinician scientists. Using the example of transvaginal mesh, this Work in Progress seminar will follow an evidence-based approach to the development of a new surgical procedure.

Work in Progress (WiP) presentations take place at St. Paul’s Hospital on alternating Wednesdays from 12:00–1:00 PM. These seminars provide investigators with an opportunity to present ongoing research, obtain feedback from colleagues and peers, and make new connections for their projects. Talks are open, and a light lunch is served.

PHC Clinical Research Education Lunch and Learn Series
Nov 21 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Dana Nohynek, MSc, RAC
Director, Regulatory Affairs and Quality Assurance, CHÉOS


Overview of Risk Management

The 2016 ICH E6 (R2) Addendum to Good Clinical Practice guideline requires clinical trial sponsors to incorporate a risk management plan as part of clinical trial activities. Risk Management allows the study team to identify areas where issues may occur in a clinical study, and incorporate strategies to prevent issues from impacting the study’s successful completion.

The Lunch and Learn Series is a recurring educational series aimed at research coordinators. Each meeting is generally eligible for continuing education credit through SoCRA.
