Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We are delighted to invite you to take part in the Asia Pacific Congress on Building Consensus
out of Controversies in Maternal and Fetal Medicine (BCMFM) held in conjunction with the 9TH Asia Pacific Congress in Maternal Fetal Medicine (APCMFM) which will take place in Shanghai, China, November 21-23, 2013.
In recent years, the field 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 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.
The Congress will enable participants from all over the world to meet with outstanding world experts in various disciplines and to be updated on the most pressing issues facing clinicians today.
We look forward to welcoming you at this exciting scientific event!
