Continuing Medical Education Conferences in Slovenia
Mar 11 - 13, 2020 | EUR €990 | Gastrointestinal Endoscopy
Modern Hysteroscopy Course is organized by The European Academy of Gynaecological Surgery (EAGS) and will be held from Mar 11 - 13, 2020 at Maribor University Medical Centre, Maribor, Podravska, Slovenia. Course Description: The remarkable progression of hysteroscopic techniques and instruments has inspired the experts of The European Academy to design an intensive course with major attention to the hands-on training and live surgical demonstrations. The limited number of 2 participants per training station and the established experience of the programme coordinators guarantee the most efficient learning effect. Special attention is given to new technologies and their application spectrum. DAY 1: Diagnostic hysteroscopy DAY 2: Mechanical operative hysteroscopy DAY 3: Bipolar resectoscopy Objectives: This course aims to achieve the following objectives: • Perform an ambulatory diagnostic-operative hysteroscopy • Become familiar with new indications for the operative hysteroscopy. like the exploration of the sub-endometrial myometrium with the TROPHY resectoscope • Participants should be able to start with major uterine surgery. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
May 25 - 27, 2020 | Free | Genetics
Variant Detection 2020: 15th International Symposium on Variants in the Genome is organized by Meeting Makers Pty Ltd and will be held from May 25 - 27, 2020 at Hotels Bernardin, Portoroz, Piran, Slovenia. Who will attend: The expected participants are all interpreting DNA variants on a regular basis, professionally, at clinical diagnostic and research labs, and generally speaking, people working with and interpreting DNA. Therefore any products or technologies for molecular genetics and diagnostic labs would be most appropriate to be showcased at this event. We are especially looking for companies to host workshops showcasing their Genome informatics tools; due to limitations in the program these are extremely limited.Course Description: The first meetings focussed on methodology developed to find mutations/variants in DNA. In the years that have passed since, we find cheaper and cheaper methods being used to do the same but more sensitively, effectively and efficiently. In addition, due to the enormous decrease in sequencing cost, methodology concentrated on one main method; sequencing. Consequently, attention and interest has shifted from detecting to evaluating variants; do they effect the health of the individual? If you want to learn from and meet world class speakers who will present the very best in human genomics related to variant detection, sequencing, and interpretation then you cannot afford to miss this conference. You will learn about sequencing technologies, variant interpretation, large projects, clinical applications, software, databases & bioinfomatics, new frontiers and more. Topics: Sequencing Technologies: • Single Cell Sequencing / Technologies • Single molecule sequencing • Long- read sequencing • Long-read RNA sequencing • Emerging or novel technolgies for variant detection • Non-SNV type of variants Variant Interpretation in Practice: • Update on ClinGen Recommendations to the ACMG-AMP system Software, Databases, Bioinformatics: • High-throughput clinical systems • ClinGen interpretation system • Artificial intelligence in data systems related to genomics • Ensembl • In-house vs commercial interpretation software • Block-chain (or other secure systems) technology for genomic/patient data storage • Variants and electronic medical records • Big data/databases/Cloud Genomics • Impact of FDA recognition of selected variant databases Applications: • Rethinking population screening & Testing Guidelines • Cancers:Colorectal & BRCA • Editing (CRISPR/CASS) • Epigenetics • Metagenomics Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

39th Annual Meeting of the European Bone and Joint Infection Society is organized by Conference Organisation, Association Development & Project Management (CAP) Partner Partner and will be held from Sep 10 - 12, 2020 at Exhibition and Convention Centre, Ljubljana, Central Slovenia, Slovenia. The conference will bring together experts, practitioners and companies involved in the treatment of bone and joint infections. Professionals attending the conference will benefit from high-level scientific presentations, knowledge sharing and networking opportunities. The scientific programme will be provided with keynote lectures, free paper sessions, industry symposia and posters. The main conference theme is: Joining forces: optimising diagnosis and management of bone and joint infections The topics for EBJIS 2020 are: • Optimising antibiotic treatment of bone & joint infections (i.e., how to deal with multidrug resistant pathogens, antibiotic side-effects/complications of antibiotic treatment, when to do an oral switch, antibiotic holidays yes/no…) • Optimal bone infection sampling and microbiological processing • Low-grade PJI – what is the best approach? • Musculoskeletal infections in children • Infections of arthroscopic implants, osteotomies and tendon reconstructions • Chronic osteomyelitis with good function. To treat or to live with? • Spinal infections Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
