RCPE Hybrid Symposium: Connective Tissues Diseases - time for change?

Course/Event Date: Thursday, June 6, 2024

Course/Event Duration: 1 Day

Course/Event Description

This symposium seeks to demystify the group of conditions classically referred to as connective tissue diseases.  These multi-system immune diseases masquerade as different phenotypes between individuals and across the life course.  Advances in their biological understanding are now enabling the stratification of such heterogeneity and are beginning to inform novel therapeutic strategies.

The programme comprises a blend of clinically useful talks which will reinforce state of the art practice alongside the importance of multi-specialty management of disorders such as:

  • Systemic lupus erythematosus 
  • Scleroderma
  • Systemic vasculitis
  • Autoinflammatory disease

Moreover, updates on cutting-edge diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for these conditions will be shared. 

This symposium is highly relevant to adult physicians across specialities, particularly the following:

  • Rheumatology
  • Renal medicine 
  • Dermatology
  • Immunology

We also warmly welcome colleagues from primary care, paediatrics and surgery. We very much look forward to welcoming you to the College for what promises to be a stimulating and informative day.

Course/Event Venue: RCPE 11 Queen Street, Edinburgh, EH2 1JQ

This course is targeted at the following specialty Groupings:

  • Diagnostics
  • Medicine
