Haymarket Medical Education (HME) is collaborating with the World Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA) and the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) to heighten primary care providers’ index of suspicion for and recognition of the early signs of breast implant–associated anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) and other breast-implant illnesses.

“General practitioners may be the first to be contacted by patients at risk for BIA-ALCL,” said Dirk Richter, MD, PhD, President of ISAPS. “Together we can ensure that this easily curable disease does not cause unnecessary deaths.”

The educational activities include Recognition by Primary Care Clinicians Worldwide of BIA-ALCL in Breast Implants: Only Touching the Surface, a 1.5-hour live event on Wednesday, November 6, 2019. This activity will be presented via the myCME Town Wall® forum, a dynamic, collaborative, and interactive virtual CE meeting, where clinicians from around the world will have the opportunity to learn from a global, multidisciplinary faculty panel.

“The ability to share our education among 500,000 family physicians and 35,000 board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeons through the support of WONCA and ISAPS respectively, is a powerful opportunity to help improve women’s health worldwide.” said Scott Scire, VP, Educational Strategy Head, Center for Collaborative Partnerships, HME.

Also available on myCME is the BIA-ALCL Series, which offers additional online activities targeted to family physicians, internists, obstetrician-gynecologists, radiologists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
