    Are you thinking about incorporating tone into your content strategy? If so, you've probably seen how confusing this topic can be.

    We know, because we are human beings, that language can misfire. Tone is where understanding and emotion come together – and sometimes that’s messy.

Pierre will show you how a team of researchers at ADP were able to tame some of the trickiness of tone and measure its impact. What they learned will help you to make sense of tone and change it from a source of risk into a tool for creating effective content.

    Attendees will learn about 1) a simple, workable set of definitions that you can use to promote shared understanding among stakeholders of what tone is; 2) A framework for identifying and applying tone attributes so that you can create a foundation for consistent practice, and 3) Some typical factors that will help you to see how tone can go awry and will help you create your own risk factors.

  • Cybersecurity & Healthcare: How prepared are you?
    Cybersecurity & Healthcare: How prepared are you? Ernie Hood, Senior Research Director with the Advisory Board and former Vice President and CIO at Group Health Recorded: Dec 12 2017 53 mins
    Securing your healthcare organization goes beyond investing in technology to secure your devices, data, and applications. In today's complex digital healthcare environment, your healthcare workflows broaden your risk exposure by interacting with multiple apps, devices, and users spread across multiple geographies. Securing these interactions and all of the components within these workflows requires investing in a comprehensive cybersecurity ecosystem that is more focused on business objectives and less focused on securing individual applications and devices.

    This webinar will discuss the pieces of a cybersecurity ecosystem model, and how this type of model requires policies, processes, and technologies that allow your healthcare organization to take a more proactive approach to risk management and security.

  • Key Considerations for Choosing a Fiber Termination Method
    Key Considerations for Choosing a Fiber Termination Method Betsy Conroy & Brian Duval, Siemon Company Jan 9 2018 4:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    There are many considerations when it comes to choosing your fiber termination method – from the number of connections and the application being supported, to performance and overall required time to go live. While pre-terminated fiber solutions offer significant benefits in terms of factor-terminated performance and ease of deployment, they do require proper planning and predetermining of lengths, as well as longer lead times. Choosing a field termination method like fusion splicing or mechanical splice connectors comes with its own set of additional considerations, including cost, required skill set and labor efficiency. This webinar will examine the various types of fiber termination methods available today, providing pros and cons of each method and basic considerations to help you choose the fiber termination that’s right for your specific fiber deployment, including key questions to ask and termination time comparisons and analysis.

    This webinar is approved for one BICSI CEC.
  • Towards Real Time Release testing: Dissolution prediction of tablets made using
    Towards Real Time Release testing: Dissolution prediction of tablets made using Dr Erik Skibsted Jan 10 2018 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    After 50 years of near-stagnation, pharmaceutical manufacturing is experiencing unprecedented scientific and technological innovation. There is a paradigm shift from testing product quality using lengthy off-line (and after-the-fact) assays to quality being tested during the process using online/ at-line measurements. This ability to evaluate and ensure quality of final product based on process data, geared towards making batch release decisions, is known as real time release testing (RTRt). A case study for predicting dissolution profiles of tablets made using CDC is presented. The methodology enables real-time release testing. Four different parameters were varied in the CDC line; API concentration, blender speed, feed frame speed, and compaction force, and their effect on tablet dissolution was investigated. Model dependent and model independent approaches were used to extract information from dissolution profiles. Multivariate regression was built between the information obtained from the NIR as the predictor variables and the dissolution profile parameters as the response. This enabled prediction of dissolution profiles for test samples made using CDC. Alternative RTRt approaches towards dissolution prediction will also be discussed.

  • The Future of Banking
    The Future of Banking Jared Johnson, Principal digital Strategist at Solstice and Steve Furman, Director of Digital Experiences at Discover Jan 11 2018 6:30 pm UTC 30 mins
    The idea of "wherever, whenever" banking has forever changed how consumers expect to bank and borrow, and today's emerging technologies like conversational agents are only adding fuel to that fire.

    As the ante continues to be raised by those inside and outside of the sector (read Amazon, Uber, and Apple just to name a few), financial institutions are working harder than ever to quickly deliver compelling, simplified, and differentiated digital experiences that translate into customer loyalty.

    On this webinar, Jared Johnson sits down with Discover's Director of Digital Experiences, Steve Furman, to discuss:

    - Why retail banks and lenders must re-imagine customer experiences across the entire customer journey
    - The importance of introducing new digital products and services to stay competitive in today’s changing world
    - How retail banks should look to tackle digital transformation from the inside-out
    - And much more!
  • Gene and Cell Therapy – An Overview of the Current and Changing Regulatory
    Gene and Cell Therapy – An Overview of the Current and Changing Regulatory Mark D. Johnson, MS; Scott E. Boley, PhD, DABT Jan 12 2018 3:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    Gene and Cell Therapy – An Overview of the Current and Changing Regulatory Requirements and Study Design for Nonclinical Safety Evaluation

    Nonclinical development of gene and cell therapies has been ongoing for more than three decades, and has been increasing in recent years. In the early days of these efforts, these therapies shared the fate of many novel experimental medicine approaches with progress impeded by severe side effects in treated patients or a failure to demonstrate efficacy in the target patient population. Research over the past decade has resulted in the development of highly sophisticated gene transfer tools with improved safety and therapeutic efficacy. As these tools have been developed, regulatory agencies worldwide have adapted new review processes and developed a wide range of guidance documents to aide researchers in designing rigorous nonclinical studies to ensure the safety, biodistribution and potential benefit of these advanced therapeutics. This presentation will provide an overview of the regulatory guidelines, provide some key considerations in the nonclinical development and testing of cellular and gene therapies, and detail several case studies of these therapeutics.

  • Estimating respiratory rate from the electrocardiogram and photoplethysmogram
    Estimating respiratory rate from the electrocardiogram and photoplethysmogram Dr Peter H. Charlton Research Associate, King’s College London Jan 16 2018 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Respiratory rate (RR) is a key physiological parameter that is used in a range of clinical settings for diagnosis and prognosis. Despite its importance, it is usually measured by hand. Over the past 50 years many techniques have been developed to estimate RR from two widely acquired physiological signals: the electrocardiogram (ECG) and the pulse oximetry signal (photoplethysmogram (PPG)). Although these techniques have been the subject of much research, they have not yet been widely integrated into clinical practice. This webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of the state of the art in estimating RR from the ECG and PPG. It is intended to equip researchers with the knowledge and tools to translate this promising technology into patient benefit.
