Meeting Date: 10/22/09-10/23/09

Meeting Details:

On October 22 and 23, 2009, the committee will discuss and make recommendations on public health issues related to the use of digital whole slide imaging systems to replace conventional light microscopy for diagnostic surgical pathology. In the scope of this meeting, digital pathology is defined as converting what can be observed by conventional light microscopy on histologic glass slides into digital whole slide images via digital scanners; viewing these images via a computer monitor to render pathologic diagnosis of the lesion of interest; and digitally archiving and retrieving these images. The committee will not be discussing computer-assisted image analysis or remote real-time microscopy.

Meeting Date: 12/17/18-12/18/18

.

Meeting Details:

The committees will provide input and advice on strategies to increase the availability of naloxone products intended for use in the community. The committees will be asked to consider various options for increasing access to naloxone, weighing logistical, economic, and harm reduction aspects and whether naloxone should be co-prescribed with all or some opioid prescriptions to reduce the risk of overdose death. Because of the potential, significant costs and burdens that may be associated with naloxone co-prescribing (e.g., economic costs to consumers and health systems, adjusting to manufacturing volume growth, drug shortages), the committees will also be asked to consider the potential burdens that may be associated with naloxone co-prescribing for all or some prescription opioid patients.

Meeting OptionsMeeting OptionsMeeting OptionsPatient Engagement AdComm

Meeting Date: 11/15/18-11/15/18

Meeting Details:

On November 15, 2018, the Committee will discuss and make recommendations on the topic “Connected and Empowered Patients: e-Platforms Potentially Expanding the Definition of Scientific Evidence.” The recommendations will address how FDA can leverage patient-driven platforms, such as social media and registries, to better engage patients and consumers as empowered partners in the work of protecting public health and promoting responsible innovation. Social media and other web platform enablers are facilitating the growth of virtual patient communities. Increasingly, patients and health care consumers are using these platforms to share their health experiences and seek information from other patients and consumers, rather than their health care providers alone. Novel approaches and methodologies are being used to tap into some of these platforms as potentially rich sources of patient-generated health data, which could be used as relevant and reliable real-world evidence. This meeting will help advance FDA’s objective to assure the needs, experiences, and perspectives of patients are included as part of FDA’s deliberations involving the regulation of medical devices and their use by patients. For this meeting, FDA is seeking input from the Committee and the public on whether and how FDA can harness the emerging potential of these patient platforms to better engage patients and consumers as empowered partners in the work of protecting public health and promoting responsible innovation. In addition, FDA is seeking recommendations from the Committee on ways to leverage these platforms to disseminate as well as potentially collect and evaluate health information to and from patients and consumers.
