Abstract Deadline March 6
On 9-10 June we will be organising a conference called “Balancing Life in OI” in Stockholm, on pain and its impact in OI and other rare bone conditions.
We invite abstracts and case studies on any aspect of pain in OI and rare bone conditions including:
1. Pathophysiology and mechanisms of pain
2. Causes, assessment and management of pain in OI
3. Causes, assessment and management of pain in other rare bone diseases, such as XLH, HPP, MO and FOP.
4. Pain’s impact on physical and mental health, sleep, fatigue, mobility, relationships/families, work/life balance
As well as research abstracts please also think about sharing clinical care initiatives and other successes (and failures), including practical interventions, education and service delivery. Abstracts will not be formally published and work which has previously been presented or published may be submitted for consideration.
The deadline for abstracts is Monday 6 March, 23:59 CET.
OIFE’s next topical meeting is about how living with pain can affect all parts of life. And equally important – how do different aspects of life (and the diagnoses) lead to pain? In order to find the right balance, and the right solutions, we must work together and share our knowledge and experiences – professionals, researchers, industry and everyone who has, or lives with someone who has osteogenesis imperfecta. I therefore encourage all of you to send us an abstract about new (and perhaps old?) solutions, treatment, aetiology, case studies (showing both good and challenging results), impact on work etc. The conference will be even more exciting if we share what we know – and what we don’t know. I am curious to hear from you.”
