MSH 2012 - 9th Annual Scientific Meeting

Dear colleagues,

I would like to invite all of you to the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Malaysian Society of Hypertension 2012.

Cardivascular disease continues to be the major cause of death in Malaysia and hypertension remains one of the challenges that we need to address as healthcare providers. It is of vital importance that we keep ourselves abreast of not only the latest developments in managing hypertension but also controversies that may arise with hitherto accepted treatment regimes.

There is no shortage of both established and newer regimes for the treatment of hypertension, the challenge as always is how to translate the evidence and knowledge into clinical practice with optimum control and improvement in cardiovascular outcomes.

There are some of the issues which we will be addressing during this upcoming scientific meeting.

I would also like to encourage our local researchers to present their studies at this meeting. Clinicians are increasingly looking for local evidence and data in helping them decide on the best and most cost-effective treatments for their patients.

We are aware of the general economic climate affecting all of us and the organizing committee has decided to keep the fees as well as exhibition costs at 2011 levels despite the increased costs in running this conference as we are convinced of the need for us to disseminate information to our local healthcare providers as widely as possible.

The Scientific Committee has prepared an exciting programme and we have included renowned local and international speakers to share their knowledge with you. I therefore look forward to welcoming you to our meeting next year.

Thank you.

Prof Dr Hapizah Mohd Nawawi
Organising Chairperson
