In November 2011, members of the international community will assemble in Antalya, Turkey for ICIUM 2011: Third International Conference for Improving Use of Medicines. Many working in the pharmaceutical field will remember the landmark ICIUM 1997 and ICIUM 2004 conferences, which summarized the evolving state-of-the-art policies and interventions to improve use of medicines.
The conference will again be highly interactive and designed to produce actionable results. Its focus will remain on presenting and summarizing knowledge about ways to improve medicines use and health, especially for vulnerable populations. Participants will help to shape evidence-based policy recommendations and a future research agenda on these topics. The sequence of half-day sessions will be organized around different levels of the health care system.
Interested individuals are invited to apply and register for ICIUM 2011. Registration will be limited to about 600 participants, and those with accepted abstracts, policy makers, and satellite meeting participants will be given preference. A limited number of scholarships covering registration fees, travel, and hotel will be available to those in need who have abstracts accepted or who are key policy makers.
