A New Special Interest Group for ISPOR?
Paul Kind, Quality Outcomes, York, UK
(This is a follow up to the article published in ISPOR CONNECTIONS
October 15, 2006, titled, “Question for the Practising Bayesian
ISPOR represents the ‘cream’ of the outcomes research community.
It numbers within its ranks some of the finest scientists of their generation.
Its research product graces the common rooms and libraries
of leading institutions across the world. In a decade its meetings in
North America and Europe have become pivotal points in the academic
yearbook. How could such an impressive record be improved
ISPOR has initiated a number of Task Forces and Special Interest
Groups to serve the research needs of its members. There are
regional and national ISPOR Chapters that provide local access to fellow
scientists. And now ...
Paul Kind (l) and George Torrance (r), after the completion of a multicentre
4,000 mile observational study (previously reported in ISPOR
CONNECTIONS), are proud to announce the creation of a new opportunity
for ISPOR members - the formation of an ISPOR Motorcycle
Special Interest Group. This hybrid is a new generic, combining the
therapeutic benefits of classic antidepressants with those observed
in studies of aging - increased sensory responsiveness, improvement
in motor skills and heightened awareness of other road users.
On May 8th, the day after the ISPOR 13th Annual International
Meeting in Toronto, ON, Canada, an inaugural ride will be held from
Toronto to Niagara Falls, through the back roads of Ontario - a round
trip of some 200+ miles. If you're a biker and want to join this exclusive
“ISPOR satellite meeting“ which will include ample opportunity
for you to debate the pros and cons of SG and TTO with some of the
worlds leading researchers - then this is for YOU. For details of where
