Continuing Medical Education Conferences in Seychelles
Yachting The Seychelles Islands On Crystal Esprit - Hot Topics in Medical, Dental & Public Health Issues is organized by Professional Education Society (PES) and will be held from Mar 07 - 14, 2020 at Crystal Esprit, Victoria, Mahe, Seychelles. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 12 Continuing Education Credit Hours. Seminar Overview/Statement of Purpose: Confronting the challenges of delivering quality patient care in the face of limited budgets and resources is fast becoming a global issue for healthcare practitioners. Medical professionals in both North America and Africa share these challenges, especially in remote areas where healthcare access and delivery are further limited. Community healthcare in both places also reflects the emerging need to establish new best practice protocols dealing with the increasing longevity of human populations and the growth of geriatric and palliative care needs. In addition, providing treatment and prevention strategies addressing chronic disease issues such as cardiovascular, obesity, and diabetes are a continuing challenge for both continents. Life expectancy for both males and females in Seychelles is high with non-communicable diseases such as cancer, heart attacks, diabetes, asthma and depression being the leading causes of mortality. Now, more than ever, it is important for medical and dental professionals to collaborate with colleagues and global counterparts to gain cross-cultural perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of medical and dental problems. By design, this program offers opportunities for professionals to compare and contrast current best practices to provide quality patient care and outcomes in their own professional setting.
