Clinical Research As A Care Option (CRAACO) 2020 is organized by The Conference Forum (TCF) and will be held from Jul 13 - 14, 2020 at Hilton Raleigh North Hills, Raleigh, North Carolina, United States of America. Who Will Benefit From Attending CRAACO? From Hospitals/Health Care Organizations, Medical Groups, Physician Groups: • Chief Administrators • Chief Experience Officer • Physician Champions/leads • Therapeutic Heads • Population Health • Head of Clinical Trials/Research From Pharma, Biotech, CROs: • Heads of Clinical Operations, Clinical Innovation • Heads of Health Economics/Outcome Research • Value & Policy • Health Systems • CMOs • Chief Quality/Outcome Officers • Chief Patient Officers, Patient Services and Recruitment The Following Organizations will also Benefit: • Payers • Investigative Sites • Patient Advocacy Foundations and Trusts • Patient Recruitment Services • IT and Health Care Consultants and Technology Firms • Medical Informatics Why Attend CRAACO? Arguably the greatest change we can collaborate on in bringing patients closer to clinical research is to make clinical trials a care option. Higher rates of clinical trial participation inside of a health system can produce better patient outcomes, lower cost of care and happier patients. Health systems and patients get access to the latest research and pharma can get access to more patients in need of clinical research options. Clinical research is typically transactional and not integrated as part of a healthcare organization’s care options. Patients almost never learn about clinical research from their physicians unless their physicians are directly engaged in clinical trials. The value of integrating clinical research into the overall continuum of care is often lost on health care organizations and misunderstood. 5 Goals of CRAACO: In this meeting, our first goal is to bring together a variety of health systems nationwide, pharma, patient advocacy, payors, regulators, change agents and innovators to chart a path forward integrating clinical care with clinical research options. We have four additional goals that include: • To demonstrate several different examples from the view of health systems on where they are in this journey as there is no gold standard best practice. • To demonstrate tools to integrate clinical trials into health systems to all parties with access to relevant information and care options. • To identify ways to reduce the barriers and burden to clinicians, research investigators and patients to participate in the evolving, expanding and important clinical research. • To encourage continued forward movement, inspire further action and unite like-minded individuals and organizations.

Health Care Project Management: The Intersection of Strategy, People, and Process is organized by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health Executive and Continuing Professional Education (ECPE) and will be held from Jul 13 - 15, 2020 at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America. Who Should Participate: Health Care Project Management is designed for both clinical and non-clinical leaders in health care organizations who are tasked with managing projects and project teams. Participants from all levels in health care organizations from around the world who would benefit from a formal approach to project management are encouraged to attend. This program focuses on the hard and soft skills needed for effective project management and is therefore most appropriate for those in roles directly involved in managing projects and project teams. Ideal participants include: • Department chairs • Division chiefs • Directors of engagement • Directors of patient experience • Managers and directors of hospital operations • Managers and directors of patient safety • Managers and directors of quality risk • Nurses and nurse leaders • Physicians and physician leaders Description: Improve your Operational Effectiveness with Health Care Project Management Skills: In health care, clinical and administrative staff with no formal training in project management often end up leading project teams. These individuals may be subject matter experts, but likely have only a passing knowledge of the science of improvement. To move from ideas to results, these project leaders need formal training in project management. Health Care Project Management provides the training health care professionals need to improve the quality of care at their organization through projects delivered on time and within budget. This course equips you with both the tools and strategies to effectively manage projects in any health care organization. In just a few days, participants will greatly improve their ability to provide focused and strategic leadership to their current and future projects. The program uses experiential activities and case studies to weave together the topics of project management, creating and managing teams, delegation, motivation, conflict resolution, and negotiation to generate maximum results. This is the course to take to master the "people side" of project management. Learning Objectives: • Gain experience with the steps involved in the project management process and adapt the stages to address the nuances within a variety of health care settings • Use case study exploration to examine how project management techniques can be leveraged as process improvement tools • Learn and practice strategies to navigate the interpersonal dynamics that emerge between and among the roles of clinical and administrative leaders/staff with specific focus on managing conflict and successful negotiation as it pertains to the project management arena • Identify and examine methods that maximize communication among audiences with a stake in project outcomes
