INTAKE STILL IN PROGRESS! HKJCDPRI Overseas Training Fellowship for Emergency Medicine (EM) / Emergency Medical Services (EMS).

Annual Conference on Disaster Preparedness and Response (ACDPR) 2018: Emerging Challenges & Opportunities Ahead

Date: 13 January 2018 (Saturday)
Location: Hong Kong Academy of Medicine

Organised by Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute (HKJCDPRI), and supported by (in alphabetical order):

  • Ambulance Service Institute (Hong Kong Branch)
  • Collaborating Centre for Oxford University and CUHK for Disaster and Medical Humanitarian Response of The Chinese University of Hong Kong
  • Hong Kong Association of Conflict and Catastrophe Medicine
  • Hong Kong College of Community Medicine
  • Hong Kong College of Emergency Medicine
  • Hong Kong Disaster Medicine Association
  • Hong Kong Emergency Nurses Association
  • Hong Kong Society for Emergency Medicine and Surgery
  • Hong Kong Red Cross
  • Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine of The University of Hong Kong


The main theme of the first (2015) and second (2016) ACDPR were “From Community to Emergency Room” with a focus on emergency medicine and “Building a Resilient Health System” with the focus on community medicine respectively. The two conferences successfully attracted over 600 participants from a wide range of related disciplines.

The third ACDPR will continue the momentum into a more practical and sustained effort from key actors of disaster preparedness and response in Hong Kong. While the first two conferences had raised the interest of targeted emergency institutions with a broad scope of themes, in light of recent major incidents in Hong Kong and overseas, such as the MTR firebomb attack, Lamma ferry disaster, terror attack in Manchester Arena, Champs Elysees attack in Paris, etc., we aspire that subsequent conferences can bring in ideas on practical solutions to emerging specific disaster risks for a metropolitan city like Hong Kong.

For more information, please email to hkjcdpri@hkam.org.hk; and keep track of conference updates on http://acdpr.hkjcdpri.org.hk/ (to be launched in December)

Review Article  

Beating ‘Guangdong cancer’: a review and update on nasopharyngeal cancer
The close relationship between Epstein-Barr virus and nasopharyngeal cancer opens up the possibility of using Epstein-Barr virus DNA as a biomarker for early detection and monitoring of the disease. On the other hand, the looming genomic data for nasopharyngeal cancer aid in the development of powerful biomarkers and promising targeted therapy.

Medical Practice  

Spinal cord stimulation for chronic non-cancer pain: a review of current evidence and practice
Spinal cord stimulation provides analgesia through electrical stimulation of the dorsal column of the spinal cord via electrode leads placed into the epidural space. It is effective in reducing neuropathic pain, enhancing function, and improving quality of life in different chronic pain conditions.

Case Report  
Immunoglobulin G4–related disease masquerading as tonsil carcinoma
Clinicians should consider immunoglobulin (Ig) G4-related disease as one of the differential diagnoses for a suspicious tonsillar mass. Early diagnosis of tonsillar mass with biopsy is essential to exclude tonsil carcinoma and to allow prompt steroid treatment for IgG4-related disease of tonsil which is curable.
