SAE Media Group’s 3rd Annual Conference
Superbugs & Superdrugs USA 
November 12 - 13, 2018 | Iselin, New Jersey
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The issue of antibacterial resistance is becoming increasingly prevalent within the world of modern medicine. Difficult-to-treat pathogens create an incredibly real issue within clinical environments; and the problem needs to be addressed with novel treatments and the development of mechanisms which circumvent current therapeutic barriers.The push to commercialization of novel anti-infectives is also a big barrier to market entry within the field; with red-tape and funding restrictions creating hindrances to the progress of anti-infective drugs through trial and regulatory approvals processes.

To address the ever-growing need of informative and thought provoking discussion, in order to address these industry issues, Superbugs & Superdrugs USA conference will offer a jam-packed agenda with presentations from key industry leaders and up-and-coming thinkers, within the field.

Register to attend by September 28 to save $100 on booking fee
 

LETTER FROM CHAIRS
"While recently approved antibiotic agents will likely help stem AMR crisis, novel approaches to the prevention and treatment of MDR infections are needed to ensure a viable antimicrobial armamentarium for the future.
The SAE Media Group's Superbugs & Superdrugs USA meeting will bring together expertise from individuals in multiple disciplines in the field of infectious disease representing research, regulatory, funding, diagnostics and academia to focus on supporting antimicrobial research and development, funding opportunities and resources for companies, new diagnostics for clinical applications, as well as novel therapies and approaches"

William J. Weiss - UNT System College of Pharmacy
A. Simon Lynch - Janssen Research & Development



 

By attending our 3rd annual Superbugs & Superdrugs USA event, not only would you benefit from the knowledge delivered through range of thought-provoking presentations, by experts at the forefront of the field; but you would also receive the opportunity to interact with and exchange ideas with decision makers from all of the different facets of the industry – from research to commercial providers and regulatory bodies

What our attendees said last year:

"Very interesting range of speakers and topics - really looking forward to the 2018 event!"

"The chairs did a great job of moderating - great discussion"

This year's Superbugs & Superdrugs USA Conference will help you to:

  • Gain insight into Diagnostic Technologies being used in the field and the futuristic developments which could be implemented.
  • Network with key industry leaders and benefit from though provoking discussions
  • Hear from the main regulatory bodies to advise on guidelines surrounding funding and development
  • Listen to up-and-coming companies, developing novel approaches to circumvent antibacterial resistance

    Pathogen-focused drug development: buyer beware

    Ian Friedland, Clinical Consultant, Ex-Chief Medical Officer, Achaogen

  • The development of new antimicrobial agents following current regulatory pathways remains challenging if the development is aimed at addressing resistant or single species gram negative pathogens

  • However, what this means in practical terms is still unclear 
  • Recent experience with the development and approval of plazomicin for an unmet need indication has been disappointing and will be discussed

    WHAT IS CPD?

    CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

    ‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

    CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

    Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

    CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

    CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

    There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

    For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

    CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

    TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

    Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

    ‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

    ‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

    The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

    As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SAE Media Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

    GLOBAL CPD

    Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.

    CPD Certificates

    We can provide a certificate for all our accredited events. To request a CPD certificate for a conference , workshop, master classes you have attended please email events@saemediagroup.com
