  • Latin American International Arbitration Course (LAIAC)

    International arbitration is developing quickly in Latin America. The number of arbitration cases is on the rise, regional arbitration centers are created, and new laws on international arbitration are enacted in the region. These developments mean new opportunities for practitioners and students who wish to specialize in this field. They also mean the need for practitioners already in the field to keep up with change.

    LAIAC is a joint initiative of the Geneva Center for International Dispute Settlement (CIDS) and the Faculty of Law of the University of Buenos Aires (UBA), and is part of the Geneva Summer Schools program. It aims at providing its participants with both a complete overview of the general transnational concepts structuring commercial and investment arbitration, and with specialized instruction in important sectors of arbitration such as sports and construction arbitration.

  • Introduction au droit et à la recherche juridique

    Introduction:

    Le CAS Droits des patients et santé publique a l’ambition de faire un état des lieux de l’ensemble des droits des patients en Suisse, sans oublier le cadre international et européen auquel ils sont intimement liés. Un exercice de jonglage législatif est proposé pour présenter l’ancrage de ces droits au niveau fédéral et cantonal. Commençant par les droits fondamentaux, le programme développe les droits des patients en tenant compte de différents critères, tels que le cycle de vie (début et fin de vie), les personnes vulnérables (incarcérées, incapables de discernement, en situation de handicap), etc. A cela s’ajoutent les grands thèmes du consentement éclairé du patient, la protection des données médicales, les responsabilités professionnelles. La réglementation des professions médicales y est également intégrée compte tenu du fait qu’un meilleur encadrement juridique des professions de la santé profite directement au respect des droits des patients.

  • Applied health economics for policy design and evaluation

    Description:
    The health care sector is extremely complex, and this gives rise to concerns about how the health system should be organised, how incentives should be designed, and how performance should be evaluated. The objective of the course is to give students an introduction to how health systems are constructed, and how the various parts of the system interact; the role of regulation, resource allocation, payment arrangements, and performance measurement; the complexities of evaluating policy and performance; and the contribution that health economics can make to the design and evaluation of health policy.
    During the course we will tackle the challenges of priority setting, consider options for financing universal health coverage, assess funding arrangements for health care providers and methods to evaluate provider performance. We will consider patient reported outcome measures, and how these can be used to inform policy, practice and patient choice. We will learn how to assess the utilisation and costs of care of individuals and how this information can be used to address the policy challenges of caring for people with multiple long term conditions. We will consider hospital configuration and bed modelling to assess how many hospital beds are needed and where should they be. We shall discuss the challenges associated with comparing health system performance. Participants are introduced to variety of evaluative techniques and statistical and econometric methods as the course progresses.


    Objectives: This course is designed to provide insight into:

    • the nature of policy challenges, including trade-offs and the need for priorisation
    • health system financing and payment arrangements
    • measurement of the quality of health care and use of patient reported outcomes
    • challenges of measuring multi-morbidity and caring for people with several long term conditions
    • the geographical planning of health care services
    • the measurement of inequality in health care needs and utilisation

  • Using Law and Policy Effectively in Public Health: The Case of Covid-19

    Drawing on the legal responses to Covid-19, this one-day workshop provides participants with the tools they need to:
    1) Mobilize public health law-related knowledge and capacity within their organizations
    2) Use and assess law and policy effectively through multidisciplinary team work within their organizations
    3) Use and assess the role of human rights norms related to the rights to health and accountability mechanisms in advancing public health goals.
    Objectives:
    The workshop will be built around two core concepts, the Transdisciplinary Model of Public Health Law and the Five Essential Public Health Law Services.
    The “transdisciplinary model” unites two traditions of law-related work in public health:
    1) “Public health law practice”: the traditionally recognized lawyerly functions of normative and doctrinal research, counseling, and representation, which continue to be crucial to the effective operation of health organizations and systems; and
    2) “Legal epidemiology”: the legal work that public health professionals have done for decades without necessarily thinking of it as legal, including policy development, building support for new policies, enforcement, and monitoring and evaluation of legal interventions and the impact of laws on health.

    These concepts will serve as the framework in which to review the ongoing international and national-level legal response to Covid-19. At the end of the workshop, participants should have a strong grasp of state of legal evidence and practice in Covid-19 response, and be able to put this knowledge into practice especially in terms of governance, policy-making, policy implementation and evaluation within their organizations and research. Ultimately they should have a reinforced capacity to work in multidisciplinary teams to enhance the effective use of law and policy solutions in their public health work.

  • Advanced Methodologies for Clinical Trial

    In evidence based medicine, randomized clinical trials (RCT) is considered as the most scientifically rigorous method of hypothesis testing. RCT is the gold standard trial for evaluating the effectiveness of interventions. However, there is no “one-size-fits-all” when designing an RCT.

    The aim of this workshop is to provide a comprehensive review of various designs of RCT ranging from traditional designs to the state-of-the-art adaptive designs (ADs), including both frequentist and Bayesian approaches.
    Key points will be illustrated through several case studies from presenters experience across the whole development space from early development through to late phase confirmatory studies. A wide range of therapeutic areas will be covered. Frequent practical sessions will be organized to ensure attendees will be able to apply new concepts for their own studies.
    The more advanced part of the course is devoted to adaptive designs, a novel approach to improving the efficiency and flexibility of clinical trials. As well as learning about how to design adaptive trials, practical aspects and interactions with the regulators will also be discussed. Real examples will be used to illustrate how frequentist or Bayesian methods work. A strong emphasis will be placed on learning how to use the R package to implement such methodology in practice.


    Day 1: Methodological Introduction
    Day 2: Bayesian methods in clinical trials
    Day 3: Adaptive designs using R

  • Writing a Journal Article… and Getting it Published

    PhD students, like any other researchers, are required to publish their research in peer-reviewed journals. Many students (and other researchers) consider this a difficult, or even the most difficult part of the research process. Understanding the changing landscape of journals and publishing is important. This course concentrates on the processes of writing and getting published, using students’ actual research studies.

    The goal of this course is simple: to enable PhD students to get their articles written and sent off to a journal.

  • Droit à la santé Droit aux soins

    Introduction:

    Le CAS Droits des patients et santé publique a l’ambition de faire un état des lieux de l’ensemble des droits des patients en Suisse, sans oublier le cadre international et européen auquel ils sont intimement liés. Un exercice de jonglage législatif est proposé pour présenter l’ancrage de ces droits au niveau fédéral et cantonal. Commençant par les droits fondamentaux, le programme développe les droits des patients en tenant compte de différents critères, tels que le cycle de vie (début et fin de vie), les personnes vulnérables (incarcérées, incapables de discernement, en situation de handicap), etc. A cela s’ajoutent les grands thèmes du consentement éclairé du patient, la protection des données médicales, les responsabilités professionnelles. La réglementation des professions médicales y est également intégrée compte tenu du fait qu’un meilleur encadrement juridique des professions de la santé profite directement au respect des droits des patients.

    Introduction:

    Le CAS Droits des patients et santé publique a l’ambition de faire un état des lieux de l’ensemble des droits des patients en Suisse, sans oublier le cadre international et européen auquel ils sont intimement liés. Un exercice de jonglage législatif est proposé pour présenter l’ancrage de ces droits au niveau fédéral et cantonal. Commençant par les droits fondamentaux, le programme développe les droits des patients en tenant compte de différents critères, tels que le cycle de vie (début et fin de vie), les personnes vulnérables (incarcérées, incapables de discernement, en situation de handicap), etc. A cela s’ajoutent les grands thèmes du consentement éclairé du patient, la protection des données médicales, les responsabilités professionnelles. La réglementation des professions médicales y est également intégrée compte tenu du fait qu’un meilleur encadrement juridique des professions de la santé profite directement au respect des droits des patients.

  • Advanced Methodologies for Clinical Trial

    In evidence based medicine, randomized clinical trials (RCT) is considered as the most scientifically rigorous method of hypothesis testing. RCT is the gold standard trial for evaluating the effectiveness of interventions. However, there is no “one-size-fits-all” when designing an RCT.

    The aim of this workshop is to provide a comprehensive review of various designs of RCT ranging from traditional designs to the state-of-the-art adaptive designs (ADs), including both frequentist and Bayesian approaches.
    Key points will be illustrated through several case studies from presenters experience across the whole development space from early development through to late phase confirmatory studies. A wide range of therapeutic areas will be covered. Frequent practical sessions will be organized to ensure attendees will be able to apply new concepts for their own studies.
    The more advanced part of the course is devoted to adaptive designs, a novel approach to improving the efficiency and flexibility of clinical trials. As well as learning about how to design adaptive trials, practical aspects and interactions with the regulators will also be discussed. Real examples will be used to illustrate how frequentist or Bayesian methods work. A strong emphasis will be placed on learning how to use the R package to implement such methodology in practice.


    Day 1: Methodological Introduction
    Day 2: Bayesian methods in clinical trials
    Day 3: Adaptive designs using R
    Day 4: Adaptive designs using R
