10th International Diabetes Federation Western Pacific Region Congress (IDF-WPR) 2014 Singapore

  • Conference Call
  • Hosted by the Dia­betic Soci­ety of Sin­ga­pore, the 10th Inter­na­tional Dia­betes Federation-​Western Pacific Region (IDF-​WPF) Con­gress 2014 will be held from 21 to 24 Novem­ber, 2014 in Sin­ga­pore.

    The con­tin­u­ing bat­tle against dia­betes requires an alliance of peo­ple with dia­betes, health­care pro­fes­sion­als, sci­en­tists and pol­icy mak­ers. As a fed­er­a­tion com­pris­ing 28 diabetes-​related soci­eties and asso­ci­a­tions in Asia Pacific, the IDF-​WPR Con­gress is the lead­ing plat­form for learn­ing and coop­er­a­tion in the field of dia­betes in the region.

    The 10th IDF-​WPR Con­gress 2014 will be jointly held with the 6th Asian Asso­ci­a­tion for the Study of Dia­betes (AASD) Meet­ing. The AASD com­prises of aca­d­e­mic soci­eties, asso­ci­a­tions and mem­bers from East and South­east Asia, and the AASD meet­ing is held annu­ally, with the aim to improve lev­els of clin­i­cal and basic research on dia­betes in the region.


    These work­shops will be held on 21.11.2014:

    • Bariatric Surgery
    • Clin­i­cal dia­betes edu­ca­tion: how effec­tive are we?
    • How to run an effec­tive CGMS and insulin pump program
    • Insulin Ini­ti­a­tion, Titra­tion, and Inten­si­fi­ca­tion: Step by Step Guide

    Key Topics/​Highlights

    The syn­ergy between 10th IDF-​WPR Con­gress 2014 and the 6th Asian Asso­ci­a­tion for the Study of Dia­betes (AASD) Meet­ing promises a highly promi­nent knowl­edge plat­form that will dis­cuss a wider span of top­i­cal issues faced by the Dia­betes Com­mu­nity today.
