Welcome Message

Greetings! We are pleased to invite you to our 2012 General Medicine Update which will take place on Saturday, 11th of August 2012. This year, we will revisit familiar topics in view of recent emerging evidence. In recent times, the public hospitals have had to deal with a surge of admissions, including those related to pneumonia. Our first speaker will take us through the updates of pneumonia and enlighten us when a patient with pneumonia can be managed confidently in the outpatient setting.

How low should the LDL cholesterol be treated to in patients with increased cardiovascular risk? Are statins really free from long term side effects? Our second speaker will update us on current evidence. Lastly, the old dilemma of whether to use aspirin in primary prevention will be discussed. Do the benefits really outweigh the risks?

These topics have been chosen based on some of your suggestions and we look forward to your participation.
