November 4, 2021
Collaborating organizations: Vereniging van Ehlers-Danlos Patienten (VED) and Vereniging van Verpleegkundig Specialisten (V&VN VS)
The Ehlers-Danlos Society, the Dutch EDS Patient organization ‘Vereniging van Ehlers-Danlos Patienten (VED)’ and the Dutch organization for Nurse Practitioners & Physician Assistants ‘Vereniging van Verpleegkundig Specialisten (V&VN VS)’ are proud to present the EDS ECHO Nurses Summit, the Netherlands: A Conference for Nurse Practitioners & Physician Assistants on the Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes on November 4, 2021, 8:15-13:30 (CET, Central Europe).
The Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) are a group of hereditary disorders of connective tissue that affect the skin, joints, blood vessels, gut, and many other organs and tissues. The EDS are complex, multisystemic conditions, and the average time to diagnosis of an Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is 10-12 years: for some, it can take decades. Early diagnosis is crucial to positive patient health.
This congress is for nurse practitioners, physician assistants, general practitioners (GP), rehabilitation doctors, and physiotherapists. This event is from a European perspective, but participants are welcome to join from anywhere in the world.
After joining this congress, you will have learned about the multisystemic nature of EDS to be able to better help your patients. Additionally, you will be given the knowledge to identify patients within your practice so ultimately patients can be diagnosed at an early stage. Join us as leading experts present the latest research and management strategies, and cover a range of topics including:
- Local anaesthetics and narcosis
- Hypermobility issues with EDS
- Discussion of self-management of living with a chronic disease
- How care is organized
- Social and psychological guidance
This event is approved for 4.5 ANCC Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) Credits for sessions attended LIVE.
