This year, acting on the suggestions from the 2017 yearend survey, we’re replacing ‘structured questions’ as catalysts for discussion in favour of 4 virtual reviews (VR) of articles of interest. It is hoped that by anchoring discussions in the context of important articles, that the exchange may be more organic in nature and ideally produce complementary veins of conversation.

Prior to the webinar, you are invited to read the article chosen as the subject of the first virtual review. See link above.

The webinar will be recorded and archived for future viewing by the CIBRN community.

If you have any comments or questions, please contact me at your convenience.

NEW for CIBRN: Virtual ReViews of key articles and perspectives from the literature. May 14 and June 20 at 8:00 pm ET.

Dear CIBRN Members,

Welcome to this year’s curriculum!

This year, rather than utilizing structured questions to advance discussions around the changing biosimilar landscape in Canada, we’re embracing a recommendation from our 2017 year-end survey, suggesting that we review key articles and perspectives from the literature. As such, we intend to host 4 Virtual ReViews (VRs), as we call them, in 2018.

Please mark your calendars for the first 2 VRs:

Mon, May 14, 8:00-9:00 pm EST, led by Dr. Vipul Jairath

Wed, June 20, 8:00 – 9:00 pm, led by Dr. Philip Baer

Webinar connection details will be sent to you by email. If you have any questions about the webinar or how to connect, please contact paul.abbass@legitimed.com.

VRs 3 & 4 will be scheduled for the Fall. Standby. In the meantime, we welcome your active participation in the Spring VRs.

Bye for now.
