RCPCH Rare Disease: Session overview

The British Paediatric Surveillance Unit in collaboration with Medics 4 Rare DiseasesCambridge Rare Disease NetworkFindacure and Rare Revolution Magazine present this half-day symposium at the RCPCH annual conference 2020.

This session will focus on rare disease – an area of medicine where innovation is making a real-life difference to the patient population and their families. It is targeted at all medical professionals because, thanks to innovation, rare disease is no longer just the domain of the super-specialist. Attendees will get a broad overview from how rare diseases are relevant to everyday clinical practice to how artificial intelligence is improving the diagnostic pathways.

It will be a chance to engage with patients, advocates and medical professionals who all work tirelessly to improve the outcomes for children living with a rare disease in the UK.
