2012 Sensible Guidelines Symposium: May 24-25 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada!
The goals of the 2012 Sensible Guidelines Symposium, which was jointly hosted by the Canadian Institute for Health Research (CIHR), were to debate and discuss study designs that could improve the efficiency of clinical trials, and to review emerging and existing barriers to the conduct of clinical trials. It was our hope that through these symposia and the ensuing publications, we can spur researchers and research stakeholders to work together to challenge the current environment.
This meeting was organized by Professors Rory Collins, Christina Reith, Martin Landray, Colin Baigent (Oxford), Drs. Christopher Granger and Robert Califf (Duke), Dr. Jean Rouleau (CIHR), Drs. Salim Yusuf, PJ Devereaux, Jackie Bosch, Tara McCready (PHRI) and Dr. John Cairns (UBC).
