Collective Intellect Clinical Case Discussion Platform (CICCDP)

CICCDP cover

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 metabolic bone disease 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 is currently open only for CLINICIANS.

Through CICCDP we hope to generate a community of care providers who are exposed to a variety of metabolic bone disorders, and equipped with the knowledge on providing the right care.
