Shaping the Future of Pediatrics

When: 20/09/2017 - 22/09/2017
Where: Rome, Italy
How technology empowers clinicians, researchers and patients
SHAPING THE FUTURE of PAEDIATRICS

The conference, that will take place in Rome on 20-22 September 2017, is organised in four sectors dedicated to major themes:

OMICS AND PERSONALIZED MEDICINE: a session dedicated to understanding how genomics and the link between genotypes and phenotypes can help making a diagnosis and predicting and choosing the optimal therapy. The ultimate tools for treating genetic diseases and overcoming the frontiers of traditional medicine in complex syndromes will be discussed. Finally, speakers will focus on personalized therapies, metagenomics and system medicine.

BIG DATA AND DIGITAL INTEGRATION: we will talk about how to deal with multiple data streams for pediatric care and about how to simulate heart surgery with virtual reality and 3D printing. We will present data on the application of artificial intelligence to image analysis. Finally, we will approach how to get the best from continuous follow-up in patients with diabetes.

THE PATIENTS AND PARTICIPATORY MEDICINE: we will discover how patients can be engaged in a powerful partnership with researchers and clinicians and inspire innovations in healthcare. We will focus on the quantified self, patient platforms and patient autonomy and how patients can communicate digitally. Finally, we will approach the challenge of data privacy and data protection from the patient’s point of view.

THE INNOVATION CYCLE IN PEDIATRICS: we will host a competition between innovative solutions for pediatrics from a selection of start-ups. We will discuss about how to systematically apply the principles of innovation and how the interactions between clinic, research, and industry can fertilize innovation in pediatrics.

FIVE REASONS TO ATTEND THE CONFERENCE:

  • TO PRACTICE THE TOOLS THAT PEDIATRICIANS, RESEARCHERS AND PATIENTS WILL BE USING IN 10 YEARS
  • TO UNDERSTAND THE VALUE OF DATA IN PEDIATRIC CARE
  • TO LEARN ABOUT COLLABORATION MODELS BETWEEN PEDIATRICIANS, FAMILIES AND PATIENTS, AND DEVELOPERS
  • TO MOVE FROM THEORY OF INNOVATION TO PRACTICE EXAMPLES
  • TO UNDERSTAND HOW ETHICS IS RELEVANT TO INNOVATION IN PEDIATRICS
