On 9th November, an International Workshop on DMD Standards of Care was organised in Warsaw by the local CARE-NMD project partner, the Department of Neurology at the Medical University of Warsaw.
It was granted an honorary patronage by the Rector of the University, and featured a scientific programme covering all aspects of best-practice DMD care.
Three lectures were presented by international experts Thomas Sejersen (Sweden), Nathalie Goemans (Belgium), and Birgit F. Steffensen (Denmark), and there were nearly 90 participants from a range of backgrounds: paediatric neurologists, clinical geneticists, neurologists, physiotherapists, and representatives of patient organisations.
In the afternoon two parallel sessions were held: one for physicians and a hands-on workshop for physiotherapists. Attendees were granted CME credit for their attendance of the CARE-NMD Polish Workshop.
