Introduction

Take a look back at this live programme with our YouTube video retrospective.

Overview

Thyroid  diseases  (TD)  represent  a  common  problem  in clinical practice having implications in many other fields of health  including  obesity,  CVD,  diabetes  and  cardiac disease. In particular, Philippines’ population has a predominance of thyroid diseases. A recent local survey of 2012 reports a prevalence  of  thyroid  diseases  of  8.5%,  mostly  as subclinical  disease,  and  the  highest  incidence  of  thyroid carcinoma worldwide. Thyroid carcinoma in Philippines has peculiar features than other races being more aggressive and presenting higher risk of recurrences. Considering  these  data,  thyroid  diseases  represent  in Philippines a challenge for health care system in terms of early diagnosis, standards of care and prevention.

The aim of this educational meeting is to share up-to-date international  guidelines  for  the  care  of  TD  and  to  apply them in clinical management in daily practice. Interaction and exchange of experience and ideas will be implemented through clinical case studies and practice sessions.

Learning objectives

  • Consider the relevance of thyroid disease and its clinical implication
  • Apply international standards for managing conditions such  as subclinical hypo, hyperthyroidism and autoimmune thyroid disorders
  • Discuss problematic aspects of thyroid diseases with colleagues and international experts through the analysis of selected clinical cases  
  • Acquire practical clinical skills on managing thyroid nodules through the clinical skill sections on ultrasound, fine needle cytoaspiration and thyroid cytology

Accreditation details

An application will be made to the EACCME ® for CME accreditation of the EXCEMED “2016 Asia - Pacific conference - Thyroid diseases: clinical features and management” to be held on 16-17 April 2016 in Manila, Philippines
