Track 1. Clinical Research:
Clinical research refers to all research carried out on humans (healthy or sick people). It focuses on improving knowledge of diseases, developing diagnostic methods and new treatments or medical devices to ensure better patient care. Below are descriptions of some different kinds of clinical research.
- Treatment Research.
- Prevention Research
- Diagnostic Research
- Screening Research
- Quality of Life Research
- Genetic studies
- Epidemiological studies
Phases of clinical trials: when clinical research is used to evaluate medications and devices. Clinical trials are often conducted in four phases. The trials at each phase have a different purpose and help scientists answer different questions.
- Phase I trials
- Phase II trials
- Phase III trials
- Phase IV trials Which is called the final trial.
Track 2. Autopsy:
Autopsy, also called necropsy, postmortem, or postmortem examination, dissection and examination of a dead body and its organs and structures. An autopsy may be performed to determine the cause of death, to observe the effects of disease, and to establish the evolution and mechanisms of disease processes.
Track 3. Case Report:
The case report is a specific type of research design that reports on an aspect of the management of one or two patients. It is the first piece of research writing in the health field and represents the most basic type of study design. Health professionals including medical, dental, preventive/epidemiological, nursing and veterinary describe challenging or unusual clinical situations. Mainly not all case reports deal with serious health threats; however, they make a contribution to health knowledge and have educational value or highlight the need for a change in clinical practice or diagnostic/prognostic approaches.
Track 4. Case Studies in Cholera:
Cholera is a classic case study of the interface between the oceans and human health, both in terms of the causes (i.e., a bacterium, copepods, and nutrient pollution of coastal marine waters) and its possible prevention (i.e., the possibility of using in situ moorings and satellites to predict its occurrence). Cholera is a serious intestinal disease that has impacted human health for centuries. This case report demonstrated the infection caused by a bacteria V. cholerae. Its symptoms are vomiting and diarrhea because of which water loss from body and dehydration can occur. Due to excessive loss of water from body, patient may feel weak and death can also occur, if not cured.
Track 5. Embedding Care Management:
The goals of embedded case management programs are to effectively manage all aspects of care for high-risk, high-cost, complex patients, while also working to reduce hospitalizations and unnecessary costs, assure patient satisfaction, and improve the patient's quality of life. At the point of care or behind the scenes, care coordination by healthcare case managers helps to elevate clinical, quality and financial outcomes in population health management and chronic care, the all-important hallmarks of value-based care.
Track 6. Medical Ontologies for Image Annotation A Case Study:
Creating New Medical Ontologies for Image Annotation focuses on the problem of the medical image’s automatic annotation process, which is solved in an original manner by the authors. All the steps of this process are described in detail with algorithms, experiments and results. The original algorithms proposed by authors are compared with other efficient similar algorithms.
Track 7. Medical Geology:
Medical Geology looks at the geological factors that affect human, animal and plant health and how we can use natural resources for modern medicine and diagnostics. Medical geology integrates professionals from medicine, geography and geology to handle problems accruing from the geology of an area. Three aspects of geology are relevant for a comprehensive study of health problems arising from the geology of a particular environment, namely mineralogy, geochemistry, and hydrogeology.
Track 8. Clinical Microbiology:
The Clinical Microbiology is a study offering diagnostic bacteriology, mycology, parasitology, virology, and mycobacteriology. Clinical microbiology is a specific combination of knowledge, attitude and practice aimed at direct clinical involvement in infectious disease management using the core principles of medical microbiology and clinical medicine. The practices described are the norm in well-organized hospitals. These areas include management of positive blood cultures, management of patients in intensive care units (ICUs), hospital infection control and public health microbiology, development of hospital and community anti-infective policy, organization of clinical-microbiological meetings and provision of emergency out-of-hours service.
Track 9. Advancements in Psychology Research Methods:
Advancements in Psychology Research Methods encourages integration of methodological and analytical questions and brings the latest methodological advances to non-methodology experts across all areas of the field. Advancements in Psychology Research Methods Research Practices section includes best practices articles, statistics tutorials, articles on new research tools, commentaries, simulation studies for new techniques, and debates about best practices, among others.
Track 10. Future of Clinical Trials:
Clinical trials are one of the pharmaceutical industry’s most painful and costly processes. Here’s how technology could shape the future of clinical development and transform the trial process from nine years to a matter of hours. Clinical research has benefited from several advancements in recent decades. Expanding access to information has empowered patients to have greater autonomy in their care and a voice during the development process. Personalized medicine has given rise to promising new therapies treating smaller, more targeted populations and the number of clinical trials leveraging virtual health tools and mobile technology is increasing.
