IMPACT Network (Virtual) Meeting and Symposium
12-5pm IMPACT Network meeting
We hope that everyone with an interest in perinatal research and clinical trials will join us for this meeting to hear about what is in the pipeline and underway in clinical trials research across Australia and New Zealand.
5:30-6:30: Special Presentation by Professor Marian Knight
Our invited international expert this year is Professor Marian Knight.
Marian Knight is Professor of Maternal and Child Population Health. She trained initially in obstetrics and neonatology, completing a DPhil investigating the pathogenesis of pre-eclampsia, before becoming interested in epidemiology and population health. She therefore undertook specialty training in public health, becoming a Fellow of the Faculty of Public Health in 2006. She is an Honorary Consultant in Public Health with Public Health England. Her work focuses on using national observational studies to address clinical questions concerning rare and severe complications of pregnancy and early life. She also leads the MBRRACE-UK national confidential enquiries into maternal morbidity and mortality. In February 2012, Marian was awarded one of the first NIHR Research Professorships to develop further her work relating to maternal morbidity and care of infants requiring early surgery.
Be sure not to miss this special IMPACT virtual symposium at 5:30 pm. Professor Knight will share her experiences from setting up and conducting adaptive clinical trials during the time of COVID-19 that could inform future approaches to clinical trials.
Registrations for this meeting are now open and there is no cost to attend. While it is a virtual meeting due to COVID-19, it promises to still be a great meeting and we look forward to seeing PSANZ and IMPACT members, as well as anyone with an interest in perinatal care or research at this meeting.
