Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) can be one of the most challenging rheumatic diseases to manage.
Known as the invisible illness and with the possibility of starting in childhood, it can span the entire lifetime of an individual.
Attend this meeting to:
- Discuss the clinical aspects challenging the management of disease and issues around the transition from childhood to adult care.
- Raise awareness into this illness.
- Discuss the unmet need will be identified and priority areas for future research discussed.
Not only will you investigate clinical and research perspectives of SLE, but you will also get direct patient perspectives, providing a unique opportunity for patients, clinicians and other healthcare professionals to come together to talk about this invisible, but real and potentially life-threatening illness.
- Clinical aspects and therapeutic options in juvenile SLE and potential complications.
- Clinical manifestations, complications and management options in adult SLE and differences between juvenile disease.
- Patient perspectives about living with SLE, and effective ways of self-management and unmet research needs.
