It will also touch on post-market surveillance activities at Health Canada. In addition, this session will highlight specific transformative efforts underway at Health Canada such as alignment of Health Technology Assessment activities related to pre-market drug submissions and consideration of the inclusion of real world data into pre-market submissions.

Date: February 28, 2019 3:00 - 4:00 pm EST

Placebo/nocebo Response is defined as the psychophysiologic effect associated with placebos. Their use in clinical practice has been highly controversial yet research clearly proves a strongly beneficial effect for many symptoms.
