Exploring Novel Clinical Trial Designs for Gene-Based Therapies - A Workshop is organized by The Health and Medicine Division of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (HMD-NASEM) and will be held on Nov 13, 2019 at National Academy of Sciences, Washington, Dist of Col, United States of America. Description: Designing clinical trials to test the safety and efficacy of regenerative medicine therapies, such as gene- and gene-editing- based therapies, can be complex for several reasons including challenges with determining an optimal dosage, delivering the product effectively, and successfully recruiting patients, to name a few. Patients and clinicians may also face difficult decisions about enrollment in a gene therapy or trial in certain instances where the trial is considered to offer a “single chance,” possibly making the patients ineligible for future trials. To further explore the design complexities and ethical issues associated with clinical trials for these types of therapies, the Forum on Regenerative Medicine will hold a one-day workshop in Washington, DC on November 13, 2019. Speakers at the workshop may be asked to discuss patient recruitment and selection for gene-based clinical trials, assessing the safety of new therapies, dose escalation, and ethical issues such as informed consent and the role of clinicians in recommending trials as options to their patients. The concept of repeat dosing and sensitization treatments may also be explored. A broad array of stakeholders may take part in the workshop, including academic and industry researchers, regulatory officials, clinicians, bioethicists, and individuals/patients and patient advocacy groups. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Parents with PTSD: How Addiction Can Re-traumatize Families is organized by National Association for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC) and will be held on Nov 20, 2019. Earn Continuing Education Hours (CEs): NAADAC members receive a CE certificate for 1 CE for free. Non-members of NAADAC can receive 1 CE for $15 (make payment here). A CE certificate will be emailed to you within 21 days of submission and receiving payment, if applicable. Target Audience: Addiction professionals, employee assistance professionals, social workers, mental health counselors, professional counselors, psychologists, and other helping professionals that are interested in learning about addiction-related matters. Description: It is well documented that addiction can have significant collateral impacts on parents, extended family, partners and friends. But what happens when these care-givers and supports also have their own Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) history? Living with, loving, and supporting a person with addiction can become personal: triggering parents, partners, and families to relive their own trauma history. This presentation will discuss how ACES can impact the family system, and will address specific support/treatment strategies using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness. Also addressed will be the CDC-Kaiser Permanente Adverse Childhood Experiences Study, a body of groundbreaking research that looked at how childhood trauma affects long-term health. Learning Objectives: • Gain an understanding of overall ACES research and principles of trauma therapy from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness perspective. • Understand how the experience of addiction can be re-traumatizing for families, partners, and other close supports. • Encourage the use of practical trauma-informed containment and treatment strategies that can be used with parents, families, partners, and other caregivers.
