General Information

The APCO Collective Intellect Clinical Case Discussion Platform (CICCDP) aims to create a platform for doctors across the Asia Pacific to share clinical cases in Osteoporosis / Metabolic Bone Disorder that are challenging and for which they would like to seek management input. The platform is structured around real patient cases (deidentified) that practitioners present, and an expert panel (2-3 panelists per session) will provide input based on evidence-based best practices and treatment protocols.  CICCDP currently is targeted primarily at healthcare professionals such as endocrinologists, rheumatologists, etc. who deal with patients with metabolic bone disorders.
