EDS-ECHO summit for health and social care practitioners. Credits are available.

October 2-3, 2020 is the first EDS-Echo Summit; a virtual scientific conference for health and social care practitioners, exploring the association, causation, and management of comorbidities seen in the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) and hypermobility spectrum disorders (HSD).

The objectives of the event are to:

  1. Gain an understanding of the evidence-base for associations between EDS, HSD, and co-morbid conditions, by review of the most up to date clinical and basic science literature.
  2. Appreciate the assessment and treatment options and challenges in the management of co-morbidities, and where applicable the evidence of causation of co-morbidities in EDS and HSD and how this impacts choice/adaptations of treatment.
  3. Gain insight into the clinical and basic science questions that influence future research objectives in the field of EDS and HSD.

The format of the EDS ECHO summit will be plenary sessions, each dedicated to an area of comorbidity and including combinations of expert updates on the current literature and future needs; and oral and poster presentations of chosen submitted scientific abstracts and clinical case reports. The event will take place via Zoom.
