CARE Congress on Biosimilars - WEST
The CARE Congress on Biosimilars – WEST
was a great success!
This regional meeting served as a platform for health care providers from Western Canada to meet, discuss, and share opinions with regards to how biosimilars are going to impact Canadian healthcare.
Presentations reviewed the basic science, clinical trial data for biosimilars, and considered the current and potential impact biosimilars will have on the Canadian landscape. Regional perspectives were provided from different stakeholders, including: specialists, advocacy groups, allied health care representatives, legal, payers, and Health Canada.
Thank you to all attendees, speakers, panelists and sponsors who participated in the event!
