The International Congress of Therapeutic Drug Monitoring & Clinical Toxicology (IATDMCT), the most focused on the individual patient Society, has identified the need to teach clinically meaningful quantitative methods such as PK and the decision theory to improve our understanding and control of drug therapy.
To this end, the following program is proposed for a Pre-Congress Seminar which will take place on September 19th in Rome on the occasion of the 19th IATDMCT Congress (September 19th-22nd 2021)
It consists of two parts:
- the first covering basic pharmacometrics modelling;
- the second precision dosing and clinical trial optimisation.
Each part starts with introductory lectures, after which ample time is reserved for participants to get their hands dirty on the subject, using prepared scripts and models, under the guidance of the Scientific Committee members.
TDM in pediatric patients as well as in neonates
Therapeutic Drug Monitoring (TDM) is the result of a multidisciplinary teamwork that involves professional figures with different expertise. Application of TDM to the routine clinical practice becomes particularly important in a pediatric and neonatal setting where patients are characterized by physiological and pathological changes that makes drug pharmacokinetic behaviour unpredictable and therefore responses to therapy uncertain. In fact, it has been estimated that almost 30-40 % of pediatric patients affected by haematological disorders or immunocompromised or subjected to invasive procedures such as dialysis or ECMO, or hospitalized into intensive care units, has experienced a therapeutic failure and/or adverse drug reactions. Therefore, the aim of this pre-congress seminar is to highlight the importance of TDM applied to routine clinical practice and its utility in pediatric and neonatal real-life experiences.
The pre-congresses are included in all Congress fees. Participants not registered to the Congress who want to participate in the seminar can register to the pre-congress on the Registration form with the following fees:
||Fee only for Young Scientists Members (31 – 40 years) and for Junior members (up to 30 years). Must provide proof of their age.
