ROME, Nov. 11, 2014 /CNW/ - General practitioners, specialist endocrinologists and internists have a brand new reference point to support their daily clinical treatment and management of patients with thyroid dysfunction.
Manage Thyroid Online (http://www.managethyroidonline.org), an initiative of EXCEMED, is a definitive resource to help healthcare professionals recognise the implications of diagnosing and treating different thyroid disorders such as hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, autoimmune disease and nodular disease (including thyroid carcinoma).
"EXCEMED is proud to present this new tool to the healthcare community with particular acknowledgement to the truly global nature of what we are offering - the Scientific Committee for this project draws top experts in thyroid disorder from Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America," says Roberta Cenci, Head of Educational Strategy for EXCEMED.
These top experts are Prof. Ali S. Alzahrani, King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Center, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Prof. Gabriela Brenta, Cesar Milstein Hospital, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Prof. George J. Kahaly, Johannes Gutenberg University Medical Center, Mainz, Germany and Prof. Nemencio A. Nicodemus Jr, UP-Philippine General Hospital, Manila, Philippines.
"The most current, international and evidence-based standards in thyroid practice are being employed on this website," says Prof. Kahaly. "As the site evolves, we will deliver up-to-date content on a variety of conditions including hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, goiter and nodular diseases, cardiovascular implications of thyroid dysfunction and special topics such as differentiated thyroid cancers, pregnancy - and age-related thyroid issues."
Healthcare practitioners will be able to select from practical and in-depth approaches to thyroid disease in formats such as expert editorials, slide presentations, video lectures and key conference summaries and CME-accredited e-learning courses.
