Type 2 diabetes and its related chronic complications are an increasing problem in many Eastern and developing countries. Thyroid diseases are also very common in these areas as a result of iodine deficiency and genetic factors. Treating these chronic diseases in medical daily care needs to focus on the importance of improving medical education based on international guidelines and standards of care. In chronic diseases such as Diabetes and Thyroid diseases, patients’ adherence to treatment and changes in lifestyle  is  crucial  to  good  patient  outcomes.  Improving communications strategies between health care professionals and patients is clearly linked to positive outcomes of care including patient satisfaction, health status, adherence to treatment and changes in lifestyle. EXCEMED has organized a dedicated meeting for healthcare professionals involved in the management of diabetes and thyroid diseases. The meeting will review significant and most recent research achievements and relevant clinical aspects for clinical practice.

Learning objectives

Participants will receive up-to-date knowledge about clinical management of diabetes and thyroid diseases. They will have the chance to participate in an innovative workshop on the skills required to communicate with patients who have chronic diseases.

This meeting will help participants to:

  • Diagnose and manage pre-diabetes
  • Diagnose and manage subclinical thyroid diseases
  • Understand current standards for managing special conditions such as thyroid disorders and diabetes in pregnancy and clinical associations of diabetes and thyroid diseases
  • Understand medical communication skills so as to increase the patient’s understanding of the disease affecting them and the need for compliance with treatment

Accreditation details

An application has been submitted to the EACCME® for CME accreditation.

EXCEMED adheres to the principles of the Good CME Practice group (gCMEp)
