Congresso Nazionale AngiologiaArteriopatia periferica, trombosi venosa profonda, prevenzione del rischio cardiovascolare, patologia dei vasi viscerali, nuovi anticoagulanti orali, cura dei pazienti più anziani e medicina di genere sono tra gli argomenti al centro del 36° Congresso Nazionale della Società Italiana di Angiologia e Patologia Vascolare (SIAPAV), che ospiteremo dal 27 al 29 Novembre 2014, a partire dalle ore 14.00.

La cura delle malattie cardiovascolari necessita di un approccio multidisciplinare. Come dichiara la Dott.ssa Adriana Visonà, Presidente SIAPAV e primario angiologo a Castelfranco Veneto, “la nostra mission societaria fa dell’attività multidisciplinare un suo punto di forza. La società ha tra i suoi soci sia angiologi e chirurghi vascolari. Pertanto, far lavorare l’angiologo a fianco del chirurgo vascolare rappresenta una vocazione di SIAPAV che nasce da lontano! Recentemente questa attitudine alla multidisciplinarietà è stata valorizzata e promossa in iniziative che vanno da simposi congiunti a collaborazioni sempre più strette tra le due figure professionali che si fanno carico del paziente vasculopatico, con alternanza di funzioni, ma con ruoli precipui e paritetici”.

Proprio in un ottica di collaborazione intersocietaria SIAPAV, recentemente invitata al XIII Congresso Nazionale della Società Italiana di Chirurgia Vascolare ed Endovascolare (SICVE), ha partecipato ad un simposio congiunto su un argomento particolarmente adatto ad essere condiviso tra la figura del medico vascolare/angiologo e quella del chirurgo Vascolare, ovvero l’arteriopatia periferica. La Società Italiana di Chirurgia Vascolare ed Endovascolare sarà a sua volta ospitata da SIAPAV nel Congresso di Roma per affrontare, assieme ad ISO (Italian Stroke Organization), il tema del trattamento delle stenosi carotidee.

Sempre nell’ottica della condivisione di patologie trasversali fra specialisti e della promozione del lavoro intersocietario, SIAPAV ha recentemente affrontato il tema della trombosi venosa profonda in pazienti di particolare complessità, quali i pazienti con Trombosi Venosa e Cancro, al Congresso della Società Italiana per lo Studio dell’Emostasi e della Trombosi (SISET) recentemente tenutosi a Milano. La stessa SISET sarà presente in SIAPAV a Roma dal 27 al 29 novembre per affrontare aspetti dal mondo reale in ambito dei nuovi anticoagulanti orali.

Altri argomenti di particolare interesse nell’ambito della patologia vascolare che SIAPAV affronta a 360°, verranno trattati nel corso del 36° Congresso Nazionale: con la Società Italiana per lo Studio dell’Arteriosclerosi e la Società Italiana di Cardiologia si discuterà di rischio cardiovascolare e sua riduzione, con il Collegio Italiano di Flebologia si discuterà di malattia varicosa, con FADOI (Federazione delle Associazioni dei Dirigenti Ospedalieri Internisti) di vascolopatie nell’anziano fragile con elevata complessità. La patologia dei vasi viscerali sarà affrontata con i colleghi Società Italiana di Diagnostica Vascolare.

“Se la vocazione alla multidisciplinarietà poteva essere in passato considerata una particolare attitudine alla collaborazione da parte di alcuni professionisti – conclude la Dott.ssa Visonà – oggi è una cogente modalità di operare in sanità con appropriatezza e sostenibilità”.

2nd Congress on Paediatric Palliative Care – “A global Gathering”

maruzzapaediatricpalliativecare

In recent years, medical and technical advances have reduced infant and child mortality and, at the same time, have improved the survival of patients with severe and potentially lethal pathologies. This has meant a significant rise in the number of babies, children and young people living with a wide range of serious medical conditions and disability that require care solutions appropriate to their age, cognitive development and circumstances.
It is now widely recognized that paediatric palliative care services, providing flexible, holistic healthcare and support for children with life-limiting/life threatening illness and their families, offers the most appropriate solutions to the multiple care needs of this vulnerable population that are very different to those of adults.
Whilst in some countries child-specific palliative care services and practices have been in place for a number of years, in many others the recognition of needs and the development of dedicated paediatric palliative care services are still at an early stage. These services, even if tailored to different cultural needs and social organization, share common goals and challenges.
The 1st European Congress on Paediatric Palliative Care organised in Rome by the Maruzza Foundation in November 2012 stimulated considerable international interest, drawing over 300 delegates from 40 countries across 4 continents and an elevated level of scientific content.
The goal of the 2nd Congress on Paediatric Palliative Care: a Global Gathering is to engage with professionals working with critically ill children worldwide by providing an international forum for interdisciplinary knowledge sharing where experiences, current topics and new perspectives on key issues regarding palliative care for children and their families can be debated, compared and discussed.
The congress programme foresees numerous opportunities for professional development and networking: from pre-congress courses, keynote lectures, plenary symposia and abstract-driven presentations.
Furthermore, to support and encourage the work of young investigators in the field of paediatric palliative care, the
2014 No Pain For Children Award For Excellence In Paediatric Palliative Care will be presented during the congress to the best abstracts submitted by Presenting Authors under the age of 35 years.

IV International Conference on Bluetongue and related Orbiviruses

 

IV International Conference on Bluetongue and related OrbivirusesTen years after the Third International Conference on Bluetongue, attended in 2003 by over 300 experts and researchers from all around the world, this and the other Orbivirus-related diseases, still remain a priority and, in some cases, an emergency for official veterinary services and livestock industry.

In this respect it is worthwhile noticing that the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and the World Bank included these diseases among those deserving attention and investments to guarantee free trade of animals and their products, thus increasing food security.

At the same time, the evolution of such diseases, their distribution in the different areas, and the innovations introduced in laboratory diagnosis pose the need for a new meeting of the international scientific community in order to update the community on the current situation, compare different approaches, and define new strategies for disease control.

The International Conference, official event of the Italian Semester of Presidency of the European Union, will take place in Rome on 5-7 November 2014.

The Conference is promoted by the Italian Ministry of Health, under the auspices of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and the European Commission, and it will be organised by Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale dell’Abruzzo e del Molise “G. Caporale” (IZSAM) as OIE Reference Laboratory for Bluetongue.

 

CONFERENCE GOALS

The conference aims to achieve the following goals:

  1. To update the scientific community and policy makers and to disseminate knowledge arising from the research conducted during the past 10 years on bluetongue and the infections caused by orbiviruses.
  2. To strengthen the network of diagnostic laboratories under the auspices of the OIE.
  3. To capitalize on the advantages produced by the III International Conference on Bluetongue – which substantially induced important changes in the approach to animal movement regulations – and at the same time to define new recommendations for international organisations, the European Union, the OIE member countries.
