Continuing Medical Education (CME)/Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programmes

IVA’s experience covers a wide range of therapy areas, including gastrointestinal (inflammatory bowel disease, gastro-oesophageal reflux disease), dermatology (solar keratoses, skin malignancy), respiratory (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma), cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome, chronic pain and headaches, just to name a few.

Knowledgeable of the principles of adult education, we utilise various delivery formats, instructional designs and techniques for our face-to-face (F2F), online or blended (F2F and online) learning programmes:

Independent Medical Education (IME) programmes

Our past and ongoing IMEs resulted from successful international grant applications and can be attributed to our deep understanding of the continuing medical education structure and global requirements and our relationships with external experts, medical universities and research organisations.

Jointly provided by the Elsevier Office of Continuing Medical Education and In Vivo Academy Limited and supported by an independent educational grant from F. Hoffman-La Roche Ltd.

This live webinar was a roundtable discussion between three international expert faculty in cystic fibrosis (CF). This expert faculty discussed the role of aerosolized agents for improving airway clearance, including caveats from their own extensive clinical experience in managing patients with this condition. The faculty also deliberated on strategies to improve patient adherence to CF therapy in a case study-based format. The discussions at the webinar supported participants in clinical decision making as well as in helping their patients achieve optimal benefit through adherence to their CF therapy.
