SMA Expert Masterclass

19 – 20 November 2018

TREAT-NMD are delighted to announce the first SMA Expert Masterclass. It will take place Monday 19th and Tuesday the 20th of November in central Rome, Italy. The masterclass will be co-chaired by Professor Eugenio Mercuri and Professor Nathalie Goemans.

The debilitating nature of Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) means that timely diagnosis and effective care are integral to improving the prognosis and quality of life of patients with this life-limiting condition. The two day expert masterclass will provide a platform for health care providers (HCPs) to share ideas, challenges and successes in delivering optimal care to people with SMA.

Leading experts will deliver presentations and interactive workshops to disseminate information on:

  • Latest updates on standards of care.
  • Current treatment guidelines and available therapy options with review of market access options in Europe.

The masterclass is suitable for all health care providers who may encounter and provide care to patients with SMA. There are a limited number of spaces available to other professions but please note places for health care providers will be given priority.
