Continuing Medical Education Mission Statement

CME Purpose

The purpose of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery’s (ISHRS) CME program is to meet the educational needs of its members and close the gap that exists between current and best practices by providing practice-oriented, scientifically-based educational activities that will maintain and advance skills and knowledge as well as promote lifelong learning for its members. CME activities will result in improvement of physician competence and performance in practice.

Content Areas

The curriculum of the ISHRS’s CME program includes but is not limited to hair transplantation, alopecia reduction surgery, hair biology and physiology, congenital and acquired alopecias, other hair and scalp related ancillary procedures and disorders, and risk and practice management. (ISHRS Core Curriculum of Hair Restoration Surgery and Core Competencies of Hair Restoration Surgery). Content is determined by the integration of various sources of needs, including gaps in knowledge and/or performance of hair restoration surgeons, national guidelines, emerging research, and expert opinion.

Target Audiences

The target audiences of the ISHRS are as follows:

- The primary target audience is its physician members with varying medical specialty backgrounds from around the world.

- Secondary audiences for the CME program include non-member physicians, as well as residents, nurses, surgical

assistants and other allied health personnel. The ISHRS recognizes the importance of and encourages international and interdisciplinary exchange of medical knowledge and practice through calls for papers, and invitations to interdisciplinary and international speakers with special expertise.

Types of Activities

The activities that support the CME mission are diverse and multifaceted, in order to provide multiple approaches for knowledge acquisition. CME offerings include the following:

- Annual Meeting, which may include didactic and hands-on courses, live surgery workshops, seminars, scientific sessions, and poster presentations.

- Other activities include regional live surgery and didactic workshops, enduring materials, and Internet CME.

All CME activities will be cost-effective and will meet the criteria for continuing medical education of the ACCME

and the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award.

Expected Results

The CME program will result in improved performance in practice (such as surgical skills) and competence (medical knowledge and ability) among its participants. All participants will be expected to provide written feedback following all educational activities, and the CME Committee will rely on this feedback as well as other methods to assess the effectiveness of educational efforts and direct changes in its CME Program.

Learning Objectives

The learning objectives are listed on the adjacent page as well as by each General Session listing within this Abstract Book.

Continuing Medical Education (CME) Credit

The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery designates this live activity for a maximum of 34.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits TM . Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery Annual Scientific Meeting (program #611100) is recognized by the American Academy of Dermatology for 34.25 AAD Recognized Credits and may be used toward the American Academy of Dermatology's Continuing Medical Education Award.

From Stem to Hair: Deciphering and Exploiting the Instruction Set That Guides Follicle Regeneration

Bruce A. Morgan, PhD Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Dr. Morgan’s laboratory studies the development and regeneration of cutaneous appendages in model organisms. Recent work has focused on the role of the dermal papilla (DP) in guiding hair morphogenesis and follicular regeneration. Mouse models that allow manipulation of gene expression specifically in the DP after the follicle has formed have been exploited to probe the role of specific signals between follicular keratinocytes and the DP. This work with model systems is integrated with a collaborative effort to understand the genetic variation driving the diversity in cutaneous appendage form and function within different human populations.

B.A. Morgan: None.

ABSTRACT:

Much research on the mechanisms that regulate hair growth and cycling has focused on keratinocyte stem cells and their progeny, in part because of the powerful genetic tools available to study this compartment in vivo. More recently, we have developed analogous tools and methods to analyze the role of the follicular papilla (DP) in these processes in the mouse. In humans, a correlation between DP size and hair shaft size has been noted both during normal growth and in the follicular decline observed with aging or progressive alopecia. However, whether this was the cause or an effect of follicular decline remains controversial. Using mouse genetic models that allow manipulation of DP cell numbers in otherwise healthy follicles in vivo, we show that DP cell number dictates both hair follicle size and hair shaft morphology. DP cell number also regulates the frequency of re-entry into the anagen phase of the hair cycle. Although the mechanism by which the DP is damaged in this mouse model may differ from that in, for example, androgenetic alopecia in humans, the downstream mechanisms that mediate follicular decline are likely to be conserved. Our experiments with this mouse model of hair thinning and loss have also revealed mechanisms that act to restore DP cell number and hair size after further damage to the DP is prevented. Related work during normal development and cycling has identified genetic pathways that act in the DP to specify DP cell number and hair morphology. While this talk will focus on mechanisms that regulate DP size and activity in the context of normal development and cycling and the response to DP damage in vivo, their potential application in hair restoration efforts will also be briefly discussed.

ABSTRACT:

As a member of the Editorial Board of the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery and as a Consultant for REUTERS Insight I am often asked to review scientific studies submitted for publication in the area of hair restoration surgery.

Over the years I have participated in many scientific studies involving different aspects of hair restoration surgery including, among others, studies on hair growth and survival, hair density studies, graft angulation studies and donor

21

area healing studies. My experience has taught me that it is exceedingly difficult to produce scientifically-sound studies in hair restoration surgery, particularly when it involves hair growth and survival. Accurate hair counts and hair measurements are exceedingly difficult tasks to perform accurately and consistently, leaving room for error and criticism if not done properly.

Another issue with hair studies reside on the fact that most of the time photographs are used at least in part to demonstrate results. What I see very often is that pictures of hair growth may be very misleading To accurately prove or refute a clinical hypothesis using photographs, the investigator must adhere to strict rules of consistency to ensure that adequate visual interpretation of results is afforded, making the data obtained trustworthy. These mistakes and inconsistencies may make an excellent study invalid and unfit for publication in a major peer- reviewed journal.

In this presentation I intend to highlight these and some other issues and provide participants with an insight on how to avoid these pitfalls so that more consistency may be obtained when drafting and conducting a study protocol. Also, insights will be given as to protocol writing and use of an IRB.
