Theme of the poster competition 2024: Drug Evaluation at the Extremes of Ages
General Posters Entry:
The competition is open to all medical, pharmacy or pharmacology pregraduate students.
Criteria for general posters evaluation: relevance to the theme, strength of the message, creativity and universality of the message
General posters can be created through any medium (digital, illustrated, hand drawn/painted) but must be submitted digitally to your national pharmacological society. Evaluating drugs in extreme age populations helps ensure that medications are safe, effective, and appropriately dosed for different age groups. Some examples : key messages about how drugs affect different age groups, including pediatric (children) and geriatric (elderly) populations, special consideration regarding dosage adjustments based on weight, age-appropriate formulations, age-related changes in metabolism, balancing between benefits and risks, especially in the frail elderly, increased sensitivity to adverse effects, managing the complexity of multiple medications. You can also make vignettes (drawings and/or brief medical stories) with examples, or emblematic drawings. Be creative!
