The 2020 EADV Congress will take place from the 29-31 of October, as a global virtual event. Do not miss EFA’s session on the socio-psychological burden and the positive aspects of atopic eczema for patients and their families.

While the general programme will cover topics such as inflammatory skin diseases, cutaneous oncology, infectious diseases, dermoscopy, hair and nail disorders and pediatric dermatology, EFA’s session will be focused on atopic eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis.

Our session will be broadcasted on the 29th of October at 8:30 am. In line with World Atopic Eczema Day 2020, patients and families are at the core of the EADV webinar session. We will address what living with atopic eczema means for families with children affected by atopic eczema and how it affects their daily (family) life, to answer to the question “How do YOU care for atopic eczema?”.

Together with patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals, we will provide an insight into how families care for their children, how they experience their relations with healthcare professionals and we will elaborate on how a collaborative approach can improve the patients’ Quality of Life. During a roundtable, our panellists will respond to the key messages shared by patients and carers in our podcast series on atopic eczema “Skin in the game”, and the realities we portrayed in the AtopicalLives exhibition.

EFA will be also present with a virtual booth in the Patient Society Village. Despite the virtual format, the attendees will be able to stop by and interact in real time with us, to ask for information and updates on EFA’s work. Through the Patient Society Village, we will showcase our advocacy for change for all people with allergy and airways diseases, focusing onn atopic eczema, we will meet with healthcare providers and other patients organisations and discuss  advocacy.

The Patient Society Village is the perfect platform for patients’ representatives to interact with health care professionals and discuss roles, needs and activities of common interest. We will be thrilled to meet you there!
