Asia-Pacific Congress on Building Consensus out of Controversies in Maternal and Fetal Medicine (BCMFM) 2013

  • Conference Call
  • ComtecMed Med­ical Con­gresses is delighted to invite you to take part in the Asia-​Pacific Con­gress on Build­ing Con­sen­sus out of Con­tro­ver­sies in Mater­nal and Fetal Med­i­cine (BCMFM) 2013 held in con­junc­tion with the 9TH Asia Pacific Con­gress in Mater­nal Fetal Med­i­cine (APCMFM) which will take place in Shang­hai, China, Novem­ber 21 – 24, 2013.

    In recent years, the filed of mater­nal fetal med­i­cine has wit­nessed tremen­dous devel­op­ment, in par­tic­u­lar on early screen­ing of fetal chro­mo­so­mal abnor­mal­i­ties, early diag­no­sis of fetal struc­tural abnor­mal­i­ties, non-​invasive pre­na­tal diag­nos­tic meth­ods, fetal ther­a­pies as well as the elu­ci­da­tion of genetic and mol­e­c­u­lar basis of many obstet­ric com­pli­ca­tions. Con­fer­ences are more infor­ma­tive, but there is only lim­ited time for thor­ough dis­cus­sion that pro­vides a plat­form for inter­na­tional experts to dis­cuss and com­pare experiences.

    The Asia-​Pacific BCMFM Con­gress will pro­vide a unique plat­form for world lead­ers and par­tic­i­pants to con­duct a vibrant dis­cus­sion aimed at reach­ing con­sen­sus in the in the field of mater­nal and fetal med­i­cine. Debates, dis­cus­sions and ple­nary lec­tures will facil­i­tate this aca­d­e­mic dia­logue which will raise the most dynamic and chal­leng­ing clin­i­cal and tech­no­log­i­cal questions.

    The Con­gress will pro­mote excel­lence in the field and aim to bridge gaps between the expan­sion of infor­ma­tion and its imple­men­ta­tion in clin­i­cal prac­tice. Inter­na­tional and local experts will share and com­pare expe­ri­ences in stim­u­lat­ing and inter­ac­tive debates. Allow­ing ample time for speaker-​audience dis­cus­sion, the Con­gress aims at reach­ing up-​to-​date and agreed-​upon answers to ongo­ing debates even when proof is lack­ing, through evidence-​based med­i­cine and expert opinion.

    Con­tin­u­ing Med­ical Edu­ca­tion Accred­i­ta­tion (CME)

    The Asia Pacific Con­gress on Build­ing Con­sen­sus out of Con­tro­ver­sies in Mater­nal and Fetal Med­i­cine (BCMFM) has sub­mit­ted for CME accred­i­ta­tion via the Euro­pean Accred­i­ta­tion Coun­cil for Con­tin­u­ing Med­ical Edu­ca­tion (EAC­CME). The accred­i­ta­tion will be in com­pli­ance with EBU/​UEMS reg­u­la­tions – 1 credit per hour, with a max­i­mum of 6 cred­its per day. Both the EBU and the EAC­CME are the insti­tu­tions of the Euro­pean Union of Med­ical Spe­cial­ists (UEMS).

    All CME events accred­ited by the EBU have the EAC­CME endorse­ment. The EBU/​EACCME CME Cred­its are rec­og­nized by National Accred­i­ta­tion Author­i­ties. Each med­ical spe­cial­ist should claim only those hours of credit that he/​she actu­ally spent in the edu­ca­tional activity.

    All CME activ­i­ties approved by the EBU/​EACCME are valid for recog­ni­tion by the Amer­i­can Med­ical Asso­ci­a­tion towards the Physician’s Recog­ni­tion Award (PRA). To con­vert EAC­CME credit to AMA PRA cat­e­gory 1 credit, con­tact the AMA.
