HCRN had their fall meeting in Park City, Utah, October 23-24. There was a lot of excitement around the recent PCORI grant and the new study, which is a randomized trial comparing shunt insertion at the front or the back of the head. This is the first randomized trial conducted in the Network and there were many details to go over, so that everyone is ready to start the study in the New Year.
The other main focus of the meeting was on ETV-CPC. An ongoing study and the possibility of doing a randomized trial were discussed. We also focused on data quality and getting our data entered in a timely fashion, as cleanly as possible. Our meetings always generate lots of new ideas, work and excitement. The next meeting is scheduled in Toronto in April.
