Jan 17 - 18, 2019 | Credits 12.00 | San Francisco, California
FDA Scrutiny of Promotion and Advertising Practices is organized by GlobalCompliancePanel and will be held from Jan 17 - 18, 2019 at Hilton San Francisco Airport Bayfront, San Francisco, California, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 12 Credits. If you go "off label" with advertising and promotion, FDA's hammer can hit hard and seemingly out of the blue. Advertising and promotion for devices is weak and lacks legal clarity. For drugs, the regulations are prescriptive and guidance documents clamp down on nuances. Marketing and regulatory affairs departments must collaborate to avoid the hammer and penalties of FDA. The roadblock, however is that marketing managers and regulatory affairs managers rarely reach common ground and are loathe to even consult with each other. Course Overview: FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) has never issued a comprehensive guidance on advertising and promotion. You are on your own. In contrast, FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) uses long-standing regulations and a growing number of guidance documents in its regulatory approach. Policing social media has become a new regulatory responsibility and FDA is still trying to figure out how to deal with it. Bottom line, do you know when you fail to meet FDA's requirements or are you guessing? Can you afford to guess? The cost to your business and the confusion left in your customers' mind becomes an unwelcomed nightmare. In this seminar, you will learn how to navigate FDA's numerous legal options and how to interpret them based on basic legal principles. Applying new guidance documents becomes a new test of the FDA's legal boundaries and enforcement options. The agency is now conducting clinical studies and applies the principles of cognitive psychology to aid in its determination of what a message really conveys. This academic discipline may or may not get to the root of what consumers take away as the message. Congress and the new FDA Commissioner seem more sympathetic to expanding access to medical treatment before all the conclusive evidence for safety and effectiveness is evaluated by the FDA. Valid off-label information may take the lead in that direction. This conference will provide insight on how to manage your marketing activity and gauge what regulatory risks your business is willing to accept. You will learn how corporate management requires cooperation between marketing, regulatory affairs, legal counsel, manufacturing, engineering and finance departments. Operating in a stovepipe environment will not work. You need to understand that a weak link in any department leaves the entire corporation vulnerable to FDA enforcement. Most importantly, you will understand the boundaries that FDA uses and how easy it is to cross them. With information from this course, you can step back and rationally evaluate your firm's regulatory profile for advertising and promotion practices. Learning Objective: • Learn how FDA faces constitutional constraints on enforcement decisions • Learn about intersecting federal requirements by the Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Consumer Product Safety Commission • Learn how the FDA interprets advertising and promotion in principle and in fact • Understand ways that a firm violates FDA requirements • Evaluate advertising and promotional material based on interactive group hypotheticals • See how sales and marketing departments play a central role, for better or worse • Learn how the federal government holds executive management responsible for missteps in promotion and advertising practices. Who Will Benefit: • Sales and Marketing executives and managers • Regulatory Managers • In-house Legal Counsel and Contract Specialists • 3rd party consultants • Venture Capitalists • Investors • Business Acquisition Executives • Owners of New or Developing Firms • Own label distributors • International Trade Managers • Product specification developers

2019 January Meeting is organized by California Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons (CALAOMS) and will be held from Jan 19 - 20, 2019 at Palace Hotel, San Francisco, San Francisco, California, United States of America. CE Units: We are offering 11 "Regular" CE (not Anesthesia CE) at the 2019 Jan. Mtg. and we will offer "Anesthesia" CE at the "19th Annual Meeting & Anesthesia Update" in Newport Beach in May of 2019. Also, due to a conflict of interest, "CME" (Medical CE for MD's) will not be offered at the 2019 Jan. Meeting. Title: “Treatment of the Patient with Implant and Dental Complications Utilizing Grafting and Guided Surgery” Synopsis: Unfortunately, implants and teeth in the esthetic zone can develop problems which result in a loss of soft and hard tissue, with the gingival recession on the implants and teeth resulting in a grave patient compromise. This presentation will demonstrate algorithms for treatment of these unfortunate problems, resulting with a restoration of the patient to their previous condition, or with realistic results which require prosthetic solutions to mask gingival deformities. Surgical techniques will be shown as well as the use of guided surgery minimizing patient morbidity with the rehabilitation. Course Educational Objectives: • Understand the diagnostic criteria needed to develop their treatment plan. • Understand the timing of orthodontic intervention with surgical procedures to optimize the esthetic result. • Have available algorithms that they can follow to simplify a seemingly complex problem. Title: “Practical approaches to the esthetic case - from A-Z - treatment planning, use of scanning, navigation methods to accurately place implants, immediate provisionalization methods” Synopsis: Patients desire an esthetic restoration to replace one or more teeth in the anterior maxilla. This presentation will discuss methods for the OMS to use for efficient planning using virtual methods, followed by an algorithm approach. Immediate provisionalization will be shown. Multiple cases will be shown who have had ridge augmentation to demonstrate the use of CT guidance. Problems with these methods will be shown. Course Educational Objectives: • Understand how to use cone beam scans combined with intraoral scanning for efficient planning. • Understand practical surgical methods to restore hard and soft tissue within the esthetic zone. • Understand when to use navigation for maximal effectiveness with consideration of incision design.
