    Young Investigators Workshop at EAHAD 2019

    We are excited to announce that our 2019 Congress will feature an interactive half-day workshop for Young Investigators on 5 February on the topics of:

     

    1. Finding the answer to your question – a workshop on study design
    2. How to write and publish your research

     

    Research projects have the aim to answer questions that are vital for medical progress. To perform a successful research project, it is essential to formulate the right research question and to use the right design for the study. Once the study is completed, it is paramount to share your results by getting them published.

     

    The aim of this Young Investigator Workshop is to teach clinical and translational researchers:

     

    1. How to formulate the right research question
    2. How to choose the correct study design
    3. How to write up your research for publication, with tips on how to increase your chances of getting your paper accepted at the first attempt

     

    Participants will be asked to prepare a short presentation on one of their research projects, within the clinical or translational domain. Basic experimental research projects do not qualify.

     

    While it is not mandatory to present a research project, participants who volunteer to do so will receive a certificate attesting to this.

     

    Register for the workshop via the EAHAD 2019 Congress website.

    EAHAD-EHC Joint Statement on novel non-replacement therapies

    For the past three decades, haemophilia A and B patients have been treated using FVIII and FIX replacement concentrates. These therapies are well known to clinicians and patients.

     

    A promising new era has now begun in the treatment of haemophilia and rare bleeding disorders. A series of novel, non-replacement therapies are becoming available, which may significantly impact the clinical care and quality of life of patients. The European Association for Haemophilia and Allied Disorders (EAHAD) and the European Haemophilia Consortium (EHC) welcome all novel therapies that have a meaningful impact on patients' treatment, care and quality of life.
