ISPOR 22th Annual International Meeting - Boston, MA, USA, 20 – 24 May 2017

Muhammad Rehan Sarwar, PharmD, MPhil, DSci (Pharm), Akhtar Saeed College of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Bahria Town, Lahore, Pakistan

This conference is a major step for me professionally and academically in that it will improve my knowledge and understanding regarding pharmacoeconomics and outcomes research. This conference, therefore, is a unique opportunity to criticize myself and make sure I am on the right track for developing my academic studies in the future. This conference will spur my skills and be a fantastic opportunity to network and workshop my ideas with colleagues and mentors from around the world. ISPOR is an interdisciplinary body of scholars and this varied representation across fields is very important to me. It will provide a bird’s eye view of the current hot topics and innovative forthcoming ideas.

Cristina Mariano Ruas Brandão, PhD, Professor, Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) / Pharmacy Faculty, Belo Horizonte, Brazil

I conduct researches that assist the decision-makers in public health. I have developed some pharmacoeconomics research by the perspective of public health. I have interest in deep research, including approaching the university to private and public institutions, as well society like ISPOR. I intent to foment organization between students at UFMG and professors. Indeed, I would like to join in different groups to increment research, knowledge and technology assessment. Attending this meeting would allow me to join different groups, improve my knowledge and will be a great contribution to reach my aims. Attending the 22nd Annual International Meeting is a professionally rewarding experience, in addition to socializing with colleagues from other institutions and hearing presentations and learning from other researchers.

Julian E Barahona-Correa, MD, Center for Autoimmune Diseases Research, Universidad del Rosario, Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Bogota, Colombia

Attending an ISPOR International meeting was a lifetime experience. This event opened my eyes to the potential that clinicians hold to significantly impact the welfare of our patients, by weighting the effects of our interventions.

At first, the short courses, I had the opportunity to attend, made me realize that many people, including young researchers and students, are interested in approaching the value and cost of healthcare from a myriad of points of view.

Then, several encounters during the poster sessions showed me that health economics is a growing field among medical doctors, particularly in developing countries. This is reassuring due to the rapidly changing conditions in healthcare systems all over the world. For instance, personalized medicine conferences illustrated one of the biggest challenges we are facing.

Further, it is remarkable to appreciate that there is a mounting interest from our mentors to advise us, as young researchers, in the very start of our careers. For instance, at the Student Network/Faculty Advisor Luncheon, they helped us to recognize the plethora of opportunities that are ahead.

Noteworthy, to realize how essential is networking to the development of our careers was astonishing. At the Global Network Reception and at the Colombia Regional Chapter meeting, I had the opportunity to observe how the relationships are held in the field, where everyone is keen to help each other, to teach, to learn and to collaborate.

Finally, I came back to my country with a backpack full of ideas and friends. We are invited to propose new solutions for the growing problems of our nations. As young physicians, leaders and potential researchers, we are called to raise awareness and foster training in health economics and outcomes research. I feel the goals I had prior to the Meeting were absolutely surpassed.

Eyob Alemayehu Gebreyohannes, BS (Pharmacy), MSc, University of Gondar, College of Medical and Health Sciences, Gondar, Amhara, Ethiopia

For the past two and half years, I have been working as a lecturer of Clinical Pharmacy and researcher at University of Gondar. I have been entitled with the responsibilities of delivering lectures on Pharmacotherapeutics and clinical attachments to pharmacy students along with conducting clinical and outcome researches. As a new discipline in Ethiopia, clinical pharmacy is facing challenges in efficiently delivering pharmaceutical care service in Ethiopia. Lack of knowledge and awareness on the importance of pharmacoeconomics and outcome research among researchers, healthcare professionals, decision makers and stakeholders has created a huge crack in the decision making process. I consider it a great privilege to be able to attend this prestigious meeting, it will enrich me with the experience on pharmacoeconomics and outcomes research from scholars who come from all over the world with expertise in the field. It will also give me the opportunity for networking with researchers and ISPOR member institutions to share their experiences in pharmacoeconomic and outcomes research. After participating in ISPOR international meeting, I will take the initiative to promote and integrate pharmacoeconomics and outcomes research results in health care decision-makings in Ethiopia through disseminating the research findings and provoking discussions on the issues at various national professional society meetings. More importantly, I will take the initiative to form an ISPOR regional chapter in Ethiopia mobilizing previous ISPOR participants, researchers and professionals in Ethiopia and form a chapter to help contribute to the development of research in the area in an organized way.

Alima Almadiyeva, MD, MPH, Republican Center for Healthcare Development, Astana, Kazakhstan

As a Director of the ISPOR Kazakhstan Chapter Executive Committee, I have been working in promoting and disseminating health economics and outcomes research excellence to improve decision making for health in Kazakhstan. My abstract "A Review of the Burden of Hepatitis C Virus Infection in Kazakhstan” has been accepted for ISPOR 22nd International Meeting and I hope to be able to present the results of my research to the professional audience. Attending this conference will not only provide me with an opportunity to learn more about the latest knowledge and experiences in health economics and outcomes research, it will increase the capacity for country and my organization as many scientific leaders and experts from across the world are regularly attend ISPOR meetings. My attendance at this international meeting will give to my country a direct access to all sessions and presentations, allowing us to gain valuable information and experience about the other countries’ scientific approach in pharmacoeconomics and Health technology assessment (HTA). This is currently very important, as our Ministry of Health has been recently focused on the development of health economics and outcomes research and our desire to collaborate with other organizations to develop new collaborations in this area.

Anthony Kamau, BS (Pharmacy), MSc, Head, Pharmacy Services, Kenyatta University Directorate of University Health Services, Kenyatta University, Nairobi, Kenya

I am a pharmacist with a Master’s degree in Evidence Based Pharmacotherapy (Aston UK). I have a growing interest and focus on choosing therapies for use especially in public sector space where I work. I have participated extensively in creation of formularies in both public and private sectors and see the need to include economic evaluations is formal assessments of drugs for formulary inclusion. I would also like to teach these concepts to students of pharmacy, where there is an existing school of pharmacy to grow awareness and practice pf pharmacoeconomics and outcomes research. Once capacity is developed during the conference and I network with likeminded people, I would like to start immediately participating in the HTA interest group.

Paweł Kawalec, MD, PhD, Associate Professor, Institute of Public Health, Faculty of Health Sciences, Jagiellonian University Medical College, Krakow, Poland

It was a great privilege to participate in the 22nd Annual International Meeting in Boston, USA. It gave me unlimited opportunity to meet face to face with different health care professionals and academics from all over the world. Many important topics were discussed during scientific sessions; I have also enjoyed attending the educational symposiums, the breakout sessions and the author-poster discussion hour where I had the chance to discuss current research methods and results with other researchers.

I had an opportunity to attend three, very interesting short courses; they were: “Meta-analysis and systematic reviews in comparative effectiveness research" and”Risk-sharing / performance-based arrangements for drugs and other medical products", both courses were very informative and sophisticated. The third ISPOR Short Course “Network meta-analysis” helped me to understand important statistical concepts which I intend to apply in my research.

I would like to send my deepest regards to ISPOR for giving me this opportunity to participate in 22nd Annual International Meeting. I would like also to thank the ISPOR team for their great effort in organizing such a great event!

Rachel Btaiche, BS, MSc, Ministry of Public Health, Beirut, Lebanon

My Impression on the ISPOR 22nd annual meeting

Growing need for cost-effectiveness analyses in Lebanese public health system

Attending and participating in the ISPOR 22nd, annual meeting for the first time was an astonishing and rewarding experience for me in many ways. I have met people from different backgrounds and nationalities (US, Brazil, Vietnam, UK, UAE etc.) but most importantly, I have met different mindsets, ideas and fascinating perspectives. The meeting was not only educational but also thought provoking, inspiring and eye-opener.

The organization of the event was impeccable, the staff was very friendly and responsive, and the variety in the approaches (workshops, lectures, symposiums, panels etc.) contributed to the dynamism I observed among the 3000+ attendees. That encouraged me to dig deeper in this field and was certainly a great motivation to transmit all of it to my country’s network. This would definitely be challenging but I am sure that with the help of ISPOR network and its regional chapters, I will be able to transfer the knowledge, and help in developing outcomes research in my country and contribute to the work of the international community.

More specifically, I enjoyed the short courses on “cost-effectiveness alongside clinical trials” and modeling methods where I had the opportunity to have hands-on experience on relatively new software. These methods would allow evidence-based decision-making in Lebanon and especially at a time where system reforms are happening. I would be able to conduct studies on cancer-related drugs and treatment where I am proudly supporting in drafting the third edition of the National Cancer Treatment Guidelines in Lebanon. Furthermore, I would be better equipped to tackle costing issues related to treatment of drug use disorders, another pressing issue that has got recent attention on the political agenda, where limited research is available to guide decision-making in that taboo area. I also participated in the short-course on risk sharing agreements and got a better understanding on the context of implementation.

The second panel that got quite popularity among the audience, which was about the “social network interventions and population health” brought me a new perspective at looking at data within social experiments and could have several applications in decision-making. The presentations and lectures were informative and sometimes informatively fun particularly when Dr. Andrew Briggs brought up quotes from Sir Winston Churchill. I was especially delighted to have received a warm welcome from ISPOR President Dr. Louis Garrison.

I am mostly grateful the ISPOR travel grant selection committee who allowed me to have this experience and I hope that efforts in that direction would be sustainable and able to assist growing professionals especially from developing countries where resources are scarce.
