Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS): A Multidisciplinary Approach to Patient Care is organized by Massachusetts Society of Anesthesiologists (MSA) and will be held from Sep 07 - 08, 2019 at Conference Center At Waltham Woods, Waltham, Massachusetts, United States of America. Accreditation: AMA Credit Designation Statement: The Massachusetts Medical Society designates each live activity for the number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ listed below. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS): 13.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. 2.25 credits meet the criteria of the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine for risk management study. Regional Anesthesia Workshop for Enhanced Recovery After: Surgery (ERAS): 2.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. For Nurses: This program meets the requirements of the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Nursing at 244 CMR 5.00 for 18 contact hours. Certificates of attendance will be awarded to all partici - pants following the program. Description: The course will address topics related to understand - ing all components of ERAS. ERAS concept consists of preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative phases of care and there is evidence to support certain practices in each. Across various levels of care and throughout the care process, it is important that care practitioners across the care team understand the evidence in support of ERAS and its impact to increase patient outcomes. As a relatively new way to approach patient care through a holistic model that integrates all phases of care, care practitioners will learn the value and implications of ERAS. The ERAS workshop, the US-Guided Regional Anesthesia (USGRA) workshop includes key elements of Point-of-Care-Ultrasound (POCUS) relevant to all anesthesiologists practicing regional anesthesia as an important part of the ERAS protocol. Learning Objectives: • Identify best evidence-based practices for a successfulenhanced recovery program. • Describe the science behind physiology and pathophysiology of ERAS. • Recognize the importance of a team-based, interdisciplinary approach to patient care. • Acquire a better understanding of the nuances of preoperative patient preparation, intraoperative mmanagement strategies, and postoperative care. • Develop a better understanding of how a team approach can impact patient outcomes. • Identify the basic principles of ultrasound anatomy for regional anesthesia. • Describe basic and advance nerve block techniques in the interscalene, supraclavicular, infraclavicular, pectoral, femoral, popliteal, and truncal regions (paravertebral, TAP, fascia iliaca, erector spinous) Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

10th Annual Summit World Bispecific is organized by Hanson Wade and will be held from Sep 17 - 19, 2019 at The Westin Waltham Boston, Waltham, Massachusetts, United States of America. Description: World Bispecific is the Only End-to-End Meeting Dedicated Solely to Enhancing the Development of Bispecific Therapeutics Focused completely on the development of bispecifics, the World Bispecific Summit represents a unique opportunity to engage with your peers to discuss strategies to overcome the key challenges holding back progress in the field. Rather than presenting vague overviews of platforms, this meeting will delve directly into the technical and scientific insights that will enable you to advance your candidate therapeutic into the clinic as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. Challenges: • Improve the Therapeutic Window in Solid Tumour Indications • Enhance the Translatability & Predictability of Preclinical Approaches • Learn Directly from Clinical Case StudiesPioneer Bispecifics in Oncology & Beyond • Pioneer Bispecifics in Oncology & Beyond • Optimize CMC & Analytical Strategies Workshop A 9:00 – 12:00 Enhancing the Translatability of Immuno-Oncology Therapeutics Description: An unprecedented range of immuno-oncology combination approaches are currently under investigation, but without robust preclinical validation backing the mechanism of action of these strategies, many of these studies will fail to reach their clear potential. This interactive workshop will share how the efficacy of immuno-oncology agents can be investigated in translational culture systems, providing you with the valuable tools to enhance your immuno-oncology work. Attend this workshop to gain valuable insights into: • A novel ex vivo human system to investigate immuno-oncology agents • A novel ex vivo human system to investigate immuno-oncology agents • Insights into the mechanistic data that can be generated from translational systems and how this can enhance immuno-oncology clinical development Workshop B 1:00 – 4:00 Innovative Discovery and Delivery Approaches for Bispecifics for Infectious Disease Indications Developing bispecifics for infectious diseases is challenging, but the potential rewards for success are huge, given the global unmet need in many of these indications. An increasing amount of bispecific development is taking place outside oncology, using new enabling technologies to tackle the complex challenges inherent to infectious diseases applications is critical to success. Attend this workshop to gain valuable insights into: • Case studies outlining protein engineering innovations to develop and adapt formats to complex biological contexts • Investigating new gene-encoded methods for in vivo delivery using non-viral synthetic DNA to enable to body to produce bispecifics • Understanding the flexibility and range of different bispecific designs able to be delivered using this approach • The future promise of bispecifics in addressing unmet medical need in the infectious disease space Time: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
