Pharmacogenomics: From Science to Practice

Room 332

This workshop aims to provide participants with a basic understanding of how genetic factors influence the drug disposition, response, and adverse effects of selected drugs. Participants can look forward to learning to interpret basic PGx information and impact on patient care. They will also familiarize themselves with clinically-actionable scenarios where PGx can be applied, and hear implementation strategies from both local and overseas practitioners. 

Learning objectives:

1. Evaluate the use of rapid diagnostics in antimicrobial stewardship

2. Explore ways to utilise technology for stewardship purposes 

3. Describe the clinical impact of inappropriate penicillin allergy documentation 

4. Discuss the key elements of penicillin allergy assessment

5. Discuss disease state-based ASP interventions and strategies

Access to Quality, Safe and Effective (QSE) Medicines – Do We Care? 
[Sponsored Symposium by United States Pharmacopeia (USP)]

Room 331

The primary responsibility of the FDA and other national and regional regulators is to ensure that medicines consumed by their public are safe, effective and manufactured in a consistent, quality manner. This is accomplished by developing and assuring compliance with national and international public health standards that address the safety, efficacy and quality of medical products.

In most Asian countries, the pharmaceutical supply chain is an intricate network of wholesalers and retailers.  However, there is a shortage of staff in regulatory agencies in order to effectively control the supply chain of medical products. Hence, this results in many entry points for the infiltration of falsified products.  The presence of substandard and falsified (SF) medical products undermine people’s faith in the healthcare system and poses a serious threat to public health.

Thus, there is an urgent need for drug regulators, pharma industry partners, non-government organizations, professional bodies, enforcement agencies and other relevant stakeholders to come together and collaborate , co-operate to promote good quality medicines so as to protect and safeguard public health.

Learning objectives  
1. To discuss the various factors which drive the production of these substandard and falsified medical products.

2. To discuss the challenges faced in conducting a risk-based post marketing sampling surveillance strategy to ensure integrity of the pharmaceutical supply chain.

Drug safety remains a perennial threat to patient wellbeing and continues to place a tremendous burden on healthcare resources. This workshop aims to cover a broad range of issues relating to drug safety, from methods of identifying significant safety signals to novel approaches of assessing and preventing drug-induced harm.

The workshop seeks to equip participants with the knowledge and skills for improving drug safety and showcase initiatives that have been undertaken to improve drug safety. 

TBC

Learning Objectives: 
1. To gain an understanding of the local pharmacovigilance landscape 
2. To appreciate the challenges in conducting causality assessments and drug safety surveillance 
3. To understand the epidemiological approaches available to investigate drug safety signals 
4. To appreciate the value of text mining and its potential role in enhancing drug safety surveillance 
5. To understand methods of implementing interventions to address drug safety concerns
