Continue the Innovative Development of Chinese Medical Doctor Association

——Dr. Zhang Yanling's Speech at the 3rd National Plenary Meeting of CMDA

Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen:

The 3rd Plenary Meeting of CMDA at Beijing is an important event in China 's development of its medicine industry and medical science. Our Party and the government always pay high attention to the medicine industry and the quality of doctors; many national leaders have sent their celebration to us for this event and expressed their expectation.

Zhang Mao, Minister of Health, and Ren Guoquan, Minister of Health at the General Logistics Department of the Army, delivered important speeches at the meeting. With the joint efforts of all the leaders, experts, media and representatives, we have had a successful plenary meeting. I feel honored to be the new chairman of the council of CMDA. On behalf of the council, I want to express our sincere thanks to all our members and friends from all walks of life.

From January 2002 to now, Chinese Medical Doctor Association has experienced a ten-year extraordinary history. During the ten years, we have overcome difficulties and make great achievement. Making efforts to promote the professional ethics and to uphold the humanitarianisms to rescue the dying and caring for the wounded, to advance medical knowledge and improve medical services, and to protect the rights and interests of the practicing physicians, CMDA has become the "home of doctors" and has 39 local associations and 51 specialty sub-associations.

Looking back into the past 10 years, the former council, under the leadership of Yin Dakui, made pioneering contributions to the development of CMDA. On behalf of the new council, I would like to express our high respect to the first and second council sessions under Yin Dakui and Yang Jing.

Doctors are important forces in developing medical industry, promoting medical system reform and improving the health level of people. We should seize all the opportunities and unite 2.4 million doctors to provide better medical services and make more contribution to social progress.

Our four priority areas of work in the future are as follows:

First, improve the quality of medical treatment, enhance the service ability of doctors and promote the professional ethics.

Second, make spareless efforts on protection of doctors' rights and providing good services. We will make unremitting efforts to provide high-quality service to all the doctors and protect their rights and interests. We should actively build bridges between our association and government departments, strengthen communication and coordination with friends from all walks of life and the news media, adequately show the expression of doctors, propagandize the advanced models and create a better environment for doctors. We insist on protecting doctors' rights according to the law, help doctors be understood and supported by the public.

Third, play the functional role of supervision and self-discipline. We should make full use of our organizational advantage and technical advantage to promote the training for residents, general practitioners and specialist doctors. We should adopt the code of conduct of medical staffs, focus on qualification for practicing doctors and improve the scientification and standardization of medical industrial management. We should also carry out the management of self-regulation, formulate professional regulations for doctors, and assist Ministry of Health to establish doctor evaluation system, do qualification authentication for doctors and supervise doctors' work to improve the quality of all the medical staffs. Our doctors should set strict demands on themselves so that they can gain respect and trust from the public. We resist all the unhealthy ways and customs like seeking private gain through treatment, getting kickbacks and academic cheating. We try to build harmonious relationship between doctors and patients and shape good images for doctors.

Fourth, strengthen self-construction of our association. We should be clear about what to do and what not to do. We should keep studying and improve our management ability, putting social benefits first. We should do what we require our members and sub-associations to do. Our new council also wants to make a commitment that we will not seek private gain through power and we will never do illegal things. We welcome all the members and communities to supervise us.

All the delegates, dear comrades, Chinese Medical Doctor Association takes the responsibility of medical industry management and carry the expectation of all the doctors. So we will unite together and forge ahead, contributing wisdom and strength to people's health and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

The 2012 China Outcomes Research and Evidence-based Medicine (CORE)Summit

The Second China Outcomes Research and Evidence-based Medicine Summit Meeting ?(also referred to as the CORE Summit) was successfully held at the Shanghai International Convention Center on March 30-31, 2012. Over 20 speakers, including experts from US Agency for Health Research and Quality (AHRQ), National Health Institute (NIH) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA), ?shared their insights and visions over the two and half day event.
Jointly organized by the Chinese Medical Doctor Association (CMDA) and the VitalStrategic Research Institute from United States, the China Outcomes Research and Evidence-based Medicine Summit Meeting has been an annual event that aims to improve healthcare quality and value through evidence-based medicine. During this year’s meeting, more than two hundred participants from government agencies, academic institutions and health care companies had in-depth discussion on topics including “the evolution and role of outcomes research and health technology assessment”, "from randomized double-blind clinical trials to comparative effectiveness clinical research”, "the role of clinicians in the process of evidence-based medicine”, “patient-centered healthcare management and values”, “choices and challenges of statistical methods in outcomes research ”, as well as “EDC "and data management technology platform of medical information".

Two of the meeting organizers, Prof. Yang Jing, executive vice chairman of Chinese Medical Doctors Association, and Dr. Zhang Danyi, president of the US VitalStrategic Research Institute, have both mentioned in the opening ceromony that clinical outcomes research is attracting more and more attentions from governments, academia and industry in US and Europe, and hopes that Chinese physicians and scholars will also apply more outcomes research evidence into clinical practice.


Scholars: China Needs more Clinical Outcomes Research
Comparative effectiveness research (CER) is an important part of outcomes research, and is the focus of one of the keynote speaking of this meeting.Dr. Zhang Danyi gave a special speech on "CER in China" , giving reasons for urging more CER in China, and gave examples of CER done in the international settings. The choices of healthcare interventions have been increasing, but there is scarce data on clinical evidence based on the Chinese population and environment, making it difficult to assess the true value of a treatment in China. In addition, new drugs and medical devices continuously rush from global markets into China. Lacking comparative effectiveness evidence, it is difficult for clinicians and healthcare policy makers to make the right medical decisions. There is also a growing demand from clinicians for clinical outcomes data from the real world. Many physicians hope to identify the gap between clinical guidelines and real-world practice, and to understand patient compliance and unmet medical needs. There are many ways that CER can be done, including both retrospective data analysis and prospective clinical research on effectiveness and comparative effectiveness. Dr.Zhang in her speech mentioned a recent research report done by AHRQ on the comparative effectiveness of medications on adult Type 2 Diabetes. The report systematically reviewed 166 clinical research done between Jan 1966 and April 2010 and summarized the pros and cons of different treatment modalities of diabetes. Clinicians could benefit from those comprehensive CERs and improve healthcare quality.

Community Physicians: Benefit from Participating in a National Clinical Outcomes Research Project

The conventional wisdom is that community physicians are just beneficiaries of evidence-based medicine research results. Community physicians can now more actively participate in Evidence-based medicine by participation in clinical Outcomes Research . Dr Xia Bing, from a community health center in Xi’an Zhongshan Gate Community, talked on her benefit from participation in a national outcomes research study on the control of blood sugar, blood lipids and blood pressure (3B study) of type 2 diabetes patients. She thought that the clinical outcomes research and clinical daily work can be combined to make multi-beneficiary.

Since the first patient enrolled in July 2010, Dr. Xia has completed the enrollment of about 250 patients, and the further follow-up of 52 cases of high-risk cardiovascular patients. She expects to complete all the follow-up studies by 2014 . Dr. Xia encountered at the beginning of the study a series of obstacles, including at beginning not quite understanding outcomes research concepts and operating procedures, not familiar with the use of electronic medical records for the first time. But through training of project implementation by the study organizers on electronic medical records, communication tutorials, and supervision measures, the above problems were solved, and study carried out smoothly.
During ongoing process of the study, Dr. Xia,by treating patients as friends (including home follow-up) and providing regular community health educations, improved the compliance of the patients’ follow-up. What she was most excited about is that many patients were now actively participating in the follow-ups, which greatly ensures the comprehensiveness and reliability of research data.

The 3B study helped to reduce the patient's medical expenses and taught them disease management knowledge. The patients were also more likely to regularly follow-up. For community physicians, 3B study is an opportunity to involve in evidence-based medicine and outcomes research, as well as an opportunity to strengthen the communication with patients. For community hospitals, 3B study was linked to management of chronic diseases while also helped ?increase hospital funding source. Outcomes research can benefit all the participants and is a win-win strategy.


Government: Outcomes Research help Management of Chronic Disease

Data from World Health Organization shows that expenditures on chronic disease has been increased to about 60 percent of all healthcare expenditures. Li Guanglin, Deputy Director of the Bureau of Chronic Diseases Control, Center of Diseases Control, Chinese Ministry of Health, and Shi Liying, Deputy Director of the Department of Foreign Affairs, Chinese Medical Doctor Association, both in their speech stressed the grim situation of chronic disease in China, and pointed out the value of outcomes research in promoting chronic disease management. Currently, Ministry of Health in China is promoting a "trinity" mode of chronic disease prevention and management, which is partly based on residents’ electronic health records, and is conducting four key surveys on hypertension, diabetes, smoking, and nutrition and health status in a nation-wide campaign. The aim is to provide more information for medical decision-making, and to enhance evidence-based healthcare policy-making.
In the United States, with more developed modern medical standards, the FDA and other government departments have been aware of the values of outcomes research earlier, and have recently specified registry research requirements of the post-marketing medical products.


Industry: Outcomes Research helps New Drug R&D


New medications could improve the hopes of many patients, but new drug R&D has been very costly. Randomized controlled trial (RCT) is an integral part of the drug development process, so what kinds of spark will be produced when combining of RCT and outcomes research. This question was talked upon by Dr. David Recker, Senior Vice President ofTakeda Global Research Center Clinical Sciences through a real case. With increasingly strong demand for real-world data from doctors, patients, pharmaceutical companies and healthcare payers, efficacy is no longer the sole focus of current clinical trials. This helps gradually change drug R&D model, making collection of comparative effectiveness data and post-marketing clinical trials equally important, and also make comparitive effectiveness the fourth "hump" besides quality, safety and efficacy, that pharmaceutical companies must face. By strategically and consciously combining RCT and outcomes research in medoxomil - a new angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB), it enables medoxomil to have a drug label more reflective on its beneficial effects on previously unmet medical needs. Using this case, Dr. Recker pointed out that clinical trials must be designed to reflect real-world needs, and many factors must be fully taken into account before and after the drug listing. Following this strategy can save new drug R&D time and costs in the long term .

CMDA hosts “Doctor’s Day” -Promoting Optimal Medical Practise

On the 26th of every June, there will be a celebration for a newly established holiday- Doctor’s Day.? The purpose of such a holiday was explained by the chairman of the CMDA, Da Kui Yin, during a recent press conferece.
