Additional Information In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Nohrnberg bio It is true that advanced capitalist orders need to ward off alienation and anomie with some kind of collective symbolism and ritual, complete with group solidarity, virile competition, a pantheon of legendary heroes and a carnivalesque release of repressed energies. But this is provided by sport, which conveniently combines the aesthetic aspect of Culture with the corporate dimension of culture, becoming for its devotees both an artistic experience and a whole way of life.
Apologies had been received from Dr Coulter. The Secretary stated that Medsafe is wanting to have the minutes finalised more quickly than in the past.
Medsafe would like to have the minutes finalised about 6 weeks after the meeting, and to have the Chair sign them off soon after that and prior to the next meeting.
It will then be possible to publish the minutes on the web site more speedily, within months of each meeting. At present the minutes are finalised weeks before the following meeting which means that it is not possible to seek sign off by the Minister's Delegate on the minutes and recommendations of the meeting until most of the recommendations have already been implemented.
To speed up the process it will be necessary for members to observe the week deadline given to them by the Secretary when she sends out the minutes for review. Members will also need to be sure to pick up any errors, or anything they want changed, at that review.
Members indicated they wished to be advised of any changes they suggest which are not included. The Secretary advised that she already got back to members about queries she had over proposed changes.
She pointed out that changes proposed to minutes at meetings were always issues not previously raised rather than unresolved matters which had already been brought to the Secretary's attention. Members agreed to comply with the requirements needed to achieve finalisation of the minutes within about 6 weeks of each meeting.
Status statements for sections 5 and 9. The Secretary had proposed that status statements be included in both the minutes and the agenda to describe the status of the material on the agenda for information or interest only.
The statements for the minutes had been included in the minutes of the th meeting with the agreement of the Chair. In addition, the Secretary had prepared a paper on the subject to present the matter to the members.
It was pointed out that Medsafe would insist that these documents be listed in the minutes because for its purposes Medsafe needs it to be clear that the material had been before the Committee even if it had not been discussed.
Members accepted the status statements proposed by the Secretary, with one change to be made to the statement for the minutes to be included at the beginning of Section 5: From "it would be moved to section 3 or 4" to "it would have been moved to section 3 or 4".
Dr Tatley pointed out that although the Quarterly Report for CARM was under section 5, the status statement for that section did not cover it.
It was not a "commentary, review article or preliminary material on an emerging issue. Dr Tatley asked for the permission of the Committee to move the Quarterly Report to Section 3 for this and subsequent meetings. Members gave their permission. Global name change for the National Centre.
Members did not like the proposed name, since "group" implies a loose conglomeration rather than the tighter aggregate suggested by "centre". In addition, using the word "research" implies that they should be producing research publications, but that is not a primary outcome. Members preferred the name "New Zealand Pharmacovigilance Centre", but recognised that the finalisation of the name was an issue for CARM and Medsafe to settle between them.
Report for the Minister's Delegate. They indicated their approval for the innovations in Prescriber Update. Nil response to letters to Pharmac. The reply was in a letter from Mr McNee in response to a letter from the Chair of MARC expressing concern about the lack of response to earlier letters.
Members noted that the reply did not indicate that Pharmac intended to take any action as a result of the concerns expressed by the MARC.
In particular, members were concerned at the apparent intention to do nothing about funding EpiPen for those with allergies to substances to which they become inadvertently exposed. It was agreed that the allergens in such cases were usually foods e. Hence, the adverse event would most often not be in response to a medicine.
Although essentially the issue was outside of the remit of the Committee, it was agreed that it was nevertheless appropriate for the Committee to express its view. Members asked that a letter be sent on behalf of the Committee to the Minister of Health to indicate to her the need for EpiPen to be funded, and to advise her of the failure of Pharmac to act on repeated concerns on this subject expressed by MARC.
In addition, members mentioned the names of individuals who could be approached to provide advice on the need for the funding of EpiPen: Members also noted the minute item on rofecoxib from the PTAC see item 6. However, it also indicated that PTAC had missed the force of the letter from MARC, that the evidence points to rofecoxib being thrombotic and that this is the explanation for the results of the VIGOR study higher rate of myocardial infarction with rofecoxib than with naproxen.
Medsafe considered it preferable to arrange a joint workshop with ADRAC, given the proposal to establish a Trans-Tasman regulatory agency.
