European Working Group on Gaucher Disease Meeting

The 10th EWGGD Meeting will be held from June 28th to 30th, 2012 at the Novotel Paris Tour Eiffel in the heart of Paris. Representatives from the European Gaucher Alliance, the patients’ association and a key partner of the conference, will share their experience and questions with the scientific community.

The medical community eagerly anticipates the results of basic science, clinical trials and registries highlights, to be announced during the meeting. Updated guidelines for the management of Gaucher disease will be released, taking into account the experience of different teams in various countries.

The Paris conference will offer a number of innovations in 2012. One of the new features is a practical session and workshop, edicated to nurses and paramedics with the objective of better integrating their crucial role in patient management through medical education, based on new practices such as home therapy. A special part of the programme will be oriented towards the emerging medical community, our younger colleagues. We aim to assist them in the acquisition of skills and experience through a dedicated workshop highlighting both typical and unusual clinical cases, presented and discussed in-depth.
