The 2021 Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH) Symposium will be held online on November 2, 3, and 4. The theme is Uncertain Times, Imperfect Evidence, and the Imperative to Act.
The CADTH Symposium has a well-earned reputation as a must-attend event for anyone with an interest in the assessment, adoption, and management of drugs and medical devices. After 15 years as an in-person event, the Symposium successfully shifted to a virtual format in 2020 to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, at the same time protecting the health and safety of attendees, presenters, and staff. More than 2,000 delegates and presenters participated online from across Canada and beyond including health researchers; health economists; senior leaders from government, regional health authorities, hospitals, and other facilities; clinicians and patients; students; and industry representatives.
Building on that success, the 2021 CADTH Symposium is expanding to 3 days and will offer more sessions, more presenters, and new opportunities for networking and engagement. Additional content will be available on-demand, including an e-poster gallery and a workshop series that will run through the fall, winter, and spring.
Topics of discussion will include:
• Methods to address uncertainty in health policy and health care delivery
• Changing needs of patients, clinicians, and policy-makers
• High-priority topics for health technology assessment
• Real-world evidence
• Drugs for rare diseases
• Virtual health care
• Digital health and artificial intelligence
• Methods to address unconscious bias in health research
• And much more!
