ASBMT Clinical Research Training Course

Park City, UT US
July 9, 2014 to July 14, 2014
The 2014 Clinical Research Training Course will begin on Wednesday, July 9 and conclude at noon on Monday, July 14 in Park City, Utah.
 

In order to improve overall patient care, findings from the laboratory need to be better communicated to clinicians providing day-to-day patient care.  Giving these clinicians access and understanding of the principles of research will help address this issue. This meeting, will fill-in the gap of the principles of research by offering formal presentation with extensive follow-up dialogue and small-group discussion.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of The Medical College of Wisconsin and American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (ASBMT) . The Medical College of Wisconsin is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Medical College of Wisconsin designates this live activity for a maximum of 20.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

The Medical College of Wisconsin designates this activity for up to 20.5 hours of participation for continuing education for allied health professionals.

Objectives and Curriculum

The ASBMT Board of Directors created the course in 2006 because of concerns that clinical fellowship programs don’t adequately cover the principles of research and how to take findings from the laboratory to the clinic.  The course helps close the gap by addressing those deficiencies.  The course includes formal presentations and extensive follow-up dialogue and small-group discussion, covering topics such as:
  • Research subject eligibility and recruitment
  • Clinical trial design
  • Biostatistics
  • Data management and quality control
  • Study endpoints
  • Late effects and quality of life
  • Clinical pharmacology, including polypharmacy and drug interactions
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Relationships with pharmaceutical companies and third-party payers
  • Opportunities for grants and clinical research training
  • Grant writing

  • Translational trials
  • Working with laboratory investigators
