CPD Programme

For the 2012 AGM, the IMO is hosting a number of CPD events, with three Scientific Sessions and three Case Study and Skills Training events.  These sessions have been developed around a range of topics that are relevant across the medical disciplines and will ensure a varied CPD programme for IMO members.

Time Event
Thursday 12th - 7.00pm – 8.30pm Rheumatology Skills Training, Dr Trevor Duffy
Doctors will acquire basic rheumatology knowledge and skills relevant across specialties.  This session will demonstrate foundation clinical skills in this specialty, and will focus on a clinical presentation and discussion of likely causative agents.
Time Event
Friday 13th - 8.00am – 9.00am Outbreak of Salmonella Typhimurium DT8, Dr Paul McKeown
This CPD session will explore the possible causes for the 2009 outbreak of Salmonella Typhimurium DT8, and will outline the control and preventive measures put in place by the investigation team.  Doctors will learn about the multidisciplinary and multiagency response to this situation and gain a better understanding of the reaction to such an outbreak, and will recognize their own role to play in such an occurrence.
Time Event
Saturday 14th - 8.00am – 9.00am Who to refer and when to refer for Vascular Surgery, Prof Sean Tierney
This session will present a series of interactive cases with doctors exploring evidence-based clinical decision making in patients with common vascular conditions including uncomplicated varicose veins; superficial thrombophlebitis; venous leg ulcers; carotid bruits and asymptomatic carotid stenosis and intermittent claudication.
