IOF Regionals 6th Asia-Pacific Osteoporosis Meeting 2016 Singapore

  • Conference Call
  • The Inter­na­tional Osteo­poro­sis Foun­da­tion in coop­er­a­tion with the Endocrine and Meta­bolic Soci­ety of Sin­ga­pore (EMSS) and the Osteo­poro­sis Soci­ety Sin­ga­pore (OSS) look for­ward to wel­com­ing you to the IOF Region­als 6th Asia-​Pacific Osteo­poro­sis Meet­ing tak­ing place at the Sin­ga­pore Con­ven­tion & Exhi­bi­tion Cen­tre (Sun­tec) from Novem­ber 46, 2016.

    Why should you attend?

    Health pro­fes­sion­als in the Asia-​Pacific are fac­ing a rapidly age­ing pop­u­la­tion. If you’re a physi­cian, clin­i­cal researcher or allied health pro­fes­sional this key regional event will help you learn how to…

    • iden­tify patients at immi­nent high risk of frac­ture and how to pre­vent sec­ondary fractures
    • man­age and treat osteo­poro­sis, includ­ing through knowl­edge of the lat­est drug treat­ments and nutri­tional recommendations
    • man­age patients post-​fracture (includ­ing frac­ture heal­ing, ortho­bi­o­log­ics, reha­bil­i­ta­tion etc)
    • address sar­cope­nia in your elderly patients by learn­ing about the lat­est nutri­tional and phys­i­cal recommendations
    • man­age bone loss in dia­bet­ics, trans­plan­ta­tion patients, and can­cer patients

    Meet-​the-​Expert ses­sions, ‘speed dat­ing’ with the pro­fes­sors and an inter­ac­tive exhi­bi­tion area will give del­e­gates the oppor­tu­nity to dis­cuss with world experts, learn about the lat­est prod­ucts and ser­vices, and min­gle with the col­leagues from through­out the region. The Meet­ing will also be the pre­mier venue for the pre­sen­ta­tion of new research in the field, and par­tic­u­larly research from the region.

    Osteo­poro­sis Essen­tials: Den­sit­o­m­e­try, Diag­no­sis and Man­age­ment Course

    IOF Young Inves­ti­ga­tor Award

    IOF is ded­i­cated to advanc­ing sci­en­tific knowl­edge on osteo­poro­sis, and in par­tic­u­lar to encour­ag­ing young researchers in all parts of the world to focus on this impor­tant field. As a sign of this com­mit­ment, IOF is offer­ing the pre­sent­ing authors (40 years old or younger at the time of the Meet­ing) of the top five rank­ing abstracts sub­mit­ted to the IOF Region­als ‒ 6th Asia-​Pacific Osteo­poro­sis Meet­ing their work at a spe­cial ses­sion on Sat­ur­day, Novem­ber 5, 2016.

    CME and CPE — Earn SMC and Euro­pean CME Credits


    The IOF Region­als Sin­ga­pore ‘16’ is accred­ited by the Euro­pean Accred­i­ta­tion Coun­cil for Con­tin­u­ing Med­ical Edu­ca­tion (EAC­CME) to pro­vide the fol­low­ing CME activ­ity for med­ical specialists.

    The ‘IOF Region­als Sin­ga­pore ‘16’ is des­ig­nated for a max­i­mum of 22 hours of Euro­pean exter­nal CME cred­its. Each med­ical spe­cial­ist should claim only those hours of credit that he/​she actu­ally spent in the edu­ca­tional activ­ity. If you only par­tic­i­pate in the pre-​meeting Osteo­poro­sis Essen­tials Course, you should only claim 9 hours of Euro­pean exter­nal CME Credits.

    Through an agree­ment between the Euro­pean Union of Med­ical Spe­cial­ists and the Amer­i­can Med­ical Asso­ci­a­tion, physi­cians may con­vert EAC­CME cred­its to an equiv­a­lent num­ber of AMA PRA Cat­e­gory 1 Cred­its™. Infor­ma­tion on the process to con­vert EAC­CME credit to AMA credit can be found at www​.ama​-assn​.org/​g​o​/​i​n​t​e​r​n​a​t​i​o​n​alcme

    Live edu­ca­tional activ­i­ties, occur­ring out­side of Canada, rec­og­nized by the UEMS-​EACCME for ECMEC cred­its are deemed to be Accred­ited Group Learn­ing Activ­i­ties (Sec­tion 1) as defined by the Main­te­nance of Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Pro­gram of The Royal Col­lege of Physi­cians and Sur­geons of Canada.

    Sin­ga­pore Med­ical Coun­cil Accreditation

    The IOF Region­als, 6th Asia-​Pacific Osteo­poro­sis Meet­ing has been accred­ited a max­i­mum of 9 CME/​CPE points. Each health pro­fes­sional must claim only those cred­its that he/​she actu­ally spent in the activ­ity. Atten­dees who wish to claim their SMC CME Cred­its need to sign and reg­is­ter their MCR num­bers at the spe­cific SMC desk (out­side ple­nary room) at the begin­ning of each morn­ing and after­noon sessions.
