JCI – 8 Marzo

Razionale

Per validare le attuali pratiche in ostetricia, ginecologia e medicina riproduttiva, per migliorare i tassi di gravidanza e natalità, sono indispensabili ricerche di alta qualità. Per condurre ricerca di alta qualità è necessario che i medici specialisti sviluppino vaste competenze e che possano condividere i risultati delle proprie ricerche con i colleghi. I corsi FAD proposti dal Journal Club Italia (JCI) sono rivolti a medici specializzati in diagnostica ostetricia, ginecologia e medicina riproduttiva, riguarderanno gli argomenti più importanti e controversi in questi ambiti. Il JCI mira a diffondere tra gli operatori sanitari la letteratura scientifica selezionata più recente. Ogni due mesi, la serie di corsi FAD approfondirà un articolo su temi diversi, dalla fecondazione in vitro al parto. Gli articoli saranno selezionati dai Topic Chairs, in collaborazione con gli Editors, tra i lavori pubblicati su riviste con alto impact factor. L’articolo selezionato verrà annunciato due settimane prima di ciascun corso FAD per consentire a tutti i partecipanti di leggerlo in anticipo. Nei FAD JCI l’articolo selezionato sarà presentato dal Topic Chair, da uno Specializzando e poi discusso da un Discussant. Le presentazioni approfondiranno i temi, i nuovi risultati e le implicazioni per la clinica e la ricerca di ciascun articolo. La discussione sarà aperta a tutti i partecipanti che potranno analizzare criticamente gli articoli e formare la propria opinione. I FAD si terranno in modalità sincrona nelledate programmate. Coloro che non avranno la possibilità di prendervi parte, potranno accedere alla modalità asincrona nelle date indicatenell’agenda. Potrai seguire le presentazioni, conoscere le nuove tendenze scientifiche e prendere parte a vivaci discussioni con molti validi colleghi senza lasciare la tua scrivania!

General Information

Overview

Management of patients with an impaired ovarian reserve or poor ovarian response (POR) to exogenous gonadotropin stimulation has challenged reproductive specialists for years. Apart from the limited understanding of its pathophysiology, there is wide heterogeneity in defining POR and overall disappointing outcomes in assisted reproductive technology (ART) cycles.

The First POSEIDON’s World Conference will dissect the new POSEIDON criteria as a means to improve the management of patients exposed to assisted reproductive technology. The new criteria enable discussion of novel approaches catered specifically to patients with low prognosis during IVF, thereby offering better tools to optimise IVF success rates.

The programme will engage renowned international experts with vast clinical experience in constantly evolving subjects. The programme aims to impart specific knowledge with focus on changing concepts or practices.

Learning Objectives

With this conference, the participants will get acquainted with the state-of-the-art definition of impaired response to ovarian stimulation, comprehend the new low prognosis concept and its application in clinical practice, and individualise and manage women with expected or unexpected prognosis to ART as per the POSEIDON classification.

Target Audience

The program is intended for clinicians, embryologists, andrologists, scientists, and managers working in ART who wish to update their knowledge of advanced techniques and scientific innovations and understand best practices using evidence-based models of care.

Accreditation

This programme will be submitted for CME accreditation to EACCME® (European Accreditation Council for Continuing for Medical Education).

Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) and the American Medical Association (AMA), physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalentnumber of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits TM . Information on the process to convert EACCME credit to AMA credit can be found at https://edhub.ama-assn.org/pages/applications.

Partnership

This programme is designed in partnership with the Portuguese Society of Reproductive Medicine.


The idea of the founding of the Portuguese Society of Reproductive Medicine arose in 1975 during an informal conversation between Portuguese specialists participating in the IFFS (Federation of Fertility and Sterility Societies) meeting in Buenos Aires. It formally materialised with the publication of its statutes in Diário da República in 1978.
According to this legal text, the SPMR has as its objective the scientific and technological development in the field of reproductive medicine, seeking to incentivise basic and applied research.

Male Infertility Virtual Preceptorship

General Information

Overview

Andrology, the branch of medicine concerned with male sexual and reproductive health, emerged as a specialty at the end of the nineteenth century. However, it was not until the latter half of the past century that andrology had been recognized as one of the most intriguing sub-specialties of human reproduction. The demand for andrologists and reproductive urologists is increasing; however, there are insufficient experts to keep pace with the requirement. The scope of modern andrology covers a broad spectrum from genetic studies to assisted reproduction techniques, and there is a clear need for updating healthcare professionals in these aspects.

This preceptorship will offer urologists, gynecologists, embryologists, andrologists and scientists working in ART an opportunity to learn the tools to implement reproductive andrology in a Fertility Center. The participants will be guided by international experts through lectures, debates and interactive discussions.
Apart from providing new insights into male infertility, this educational activity will give a guided journey through a modern centre specialised in male reproductive health.

Learning Objectives

With this preceptorship, the participants will learn how to standardize the male infertility evaluation and its importance for ART success. They will also learn about basic and specialized sperm function tests, how to order and interpret results. Participants will acquire knowledge on the most effective treatments for the infertile male and how they can add value to improve ART success. The course will also touch on quality management and how to set up a successful sperm retrieval program.

Educational format

The virtual preceptorship will feature:

13

7 video lectures: that will be released throughout the course period with subtitles in Chinese, Portuguese, Spanish.

12

3 Live sessions (practical session in three ‘host’ clinics) will be streamed live and each session will provide the opportunity for more practical in-depth learning. Each live session will engage a group of participants that has prepared case studies and questions. The chair will present selected case studies/questions focusing on male infertility and ART, and discuss them live together with the host Clinic team. Prior to each live session, relevant MCQ and literature will be shared with participants. The pre-live exercises will guide discussion on the optimal clinical management for each case. More information on how to submit a case study and become an “Active participant” can be found below.

14

Chat room: During the three live sessions, users will be able to enter the chat room to discuss and ask interesting topics and debate with colleagues.

15

Diploma and Certificate: Upon completion of all three surveys, users will get a diploma signed by the Chair and EACCME accreditation for attending the three live sessions.

16

A library with a collection of articles related to the program will be provided.

LH 2021

General Information

Overview

The role of luteinizing hormone (LH) during folliculogenesis has intrigued the scientific and medical community for at least three decades. There is an emerging galaxy of research to explore concerning this enigmatic subject. The availability of recombinant drugs now offers, for the first time, the opportunity to examine the role of follicle stimulating hormone and LH separately. An emerging topic during last year’s conference was LH supplementation to improve the outcome in a subgroup of low prognosis patients selected according to POSEIDON classification.

This new virtual preceptorship is designed to explore the role of luteinizing activity during folliculogenesis and beyond. The virtual preceptorship will feature and summarise educational material released during the last edition of the Virtual World Conference on Luteinizing Hormone in ART. In addition, three live sessions (practical session in three ‘host’ clinics) will be streamed live and each session will provide the opportunity for more practical in-depth learning. Each live session will engage a group of participants that has prepared case studies and questions. The chairs will present selected case studies/questions focusing on LH and ART, and discuss them live together with the host Clinic team. Prior to each live session, relevant MCQ and literature will be shared with participants. The pre-live exercises will guide discussion on the optimal clinical management for each case.

During the preceptorship, the participant can also visit the chat room to discuss interesting topics and debate with colleagues. The virtual preceptorship doesn’t stop there – A library with a collection of recent articles related to the program will be freely available to all participants. We hope you find this learning experience, on the role of luteinizing hormone in ART, to benefit your on-going education. We look forward to welcoming you to this next exploration.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the importance of luteinizing activity during folliculogenesis and beyond.
  • Understand the dynamics of hypothalamic-pituitary axis in the pathogenesis of hypo- and normo-gonadotropic amenorrhea.
  • Comprehend the concept of relative gonadotropin deficiency.
  • Discuss and debate the management of low prognosis patients.
  • Comprehend the clinical utility of the POSEIDON classification for the management of low prognosis women.
  • Discover the clinical relevance of LH supplementation in ART.
  • Appreciate the clinical relevance and pathogenesis of the progesterone rise during COS.
  • Analyse the relevance of LH during the luteal phase and Introduce the concept of individualized luteal phase support.
  • Explore the potential of LH in male infertility.

Target Audience

The programme is intended for clinicians, embryologists, andrologists, scientists, and managers working in ART who wish to update their knowledge of advanced techniques and scientific innovations and understand best practices using evidence-based models of care.

Accreditation

These live sessions will be submitted for CME accreditation to EACCME® (European Accreditation Council for Continuing for Medical Education).

Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) and the American Medical Association (AMA), physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits TM .

JCI 2021 – 11 Gennaio

Razionale

Per validare le attuali pratiche in ostetricia, ginecologia e medicina riproduttiva, per migliorare i tassi di gravidanza e natalità, sono indispensabili ricerche di alta qualità. Per condurre ricerca di alta qualità è necessario che i medici specialisti sviluppino vaste competenze e che possano condividere i risultati delle proprie ricerche con i colleghi. I corsi FAD proposti dal Journal Club Italia (JCI) sono rivolti a medici specializzati in diagnostica ostetricia, ginecologia e medicina riproduttiva, riguarderanno gli argomenti più importanti e controversi in questi ambiti. Il JCI mira a diffondere tra gli operatori sanitari la letteratura scientifica selezionata più recente. Ogni due mesi, la serie di corsi FAD approfondirà un articolo su temi diversi, dalla fecondazione in vitro al parto. Gli articoli saranno selezionati dai Topic Chairs, in collaborazione con gli Editors, tra i lavori pubblicati su riviste con alto impact factor. L’articolo selezionato verrà annunciato due settimane prima di ciascun corso FAD per consentire a tutti i partecipanti di leggerlo in anticipo. Nei FAD JCI l’articolo selezionato sarà presentato dal Topic Chair, da uno Specializzando e poi discusso da un Discussant. Le presentazioni approfondiranno i temi, i nuovi risultati e le implicazioni per la clinica e la ricerca di ciascun articolo. La discussione sarà aperta a tutti i partecipanti che potranno analizzare criticamente gli articoli e formare la propria opinione. I FAD si terranno in modalità sincrona nelledate programmate.

JCI 2020

Informazioni Generali

Razionale

Per validare le attuali pratiche in ostetricia, ginecologia e medicina riproduttiva, per migliorare i tassi di gravidanza e natalità, sono indispensabili ricerche di alta qualità. Per condurre ricerca di alta qualità è necessario che i medici specialisti sviluppino vaste competenze e che possano condividere i risultati delle proprie ricerche con i colleghi.

I corsi FAD proposti dal Journal Club Italia (JCI) sono rivolti a medici specializzati in diagnostica ostetricia, ginecologia e medicina riproduttiva, riguarderanno gli argomenti più importanti e controversi in questi ambiti. Il JCI mira a diffondere tra gli operatori sanitari la letteratura scientifica selezionata più recente.

Ogni due mesi, la serie di corsi FAD approfondirà un articolo su temi diversi, dalla fecondazione in vitro al parto. Gli articoli saranno selezionati dai Topic Chairs, in collaborazione con gli Editors, tra i lavori pubblicati su riviste con alto impact factor. L’articolo selezionato verrà annunciato due settimane prima di ciascun corso FAD per consentire a tutti i partecipanti di leggerlo in anticipo.

Nei FAD JCI l’articolo selezionato sarà presentato dal Topic Chair, da uno Specializzando e poi discusso da un Discussant. Le presentazioni approfondiranno i temi, i nuovi risultati e le implicazioni per la clinica e la ricerca di ciascun articolo. La discussione sarà aperta a tutti i partecipanti che potranno analizzare criticamente gli articoli e formare la propria opinione.

I FAD si terranno in modalità sincrona nelle date programmate. Coloro che non avranno la possibilità di prendervi parte, potranno accedere alla modalità asincrona nelle date indicate nell’agenda.

Potrai seguire le presentazioni, conoscere le nuove tendenze scientifiche e prendere parte a vivaci discussioni con molti validi colleghi senza lasciare la tua scrivania!
