BALANCING LIFE WITH OI – OIFE TOPICAL MEETING 2023
We look forward to welcoming you to OIFE’s fifth topical meeting, which will take place in Stockholm, Sweden in 2023. Registration is now open.
Under the title “Balancing life with OI” we’d like to focus on factors that can influence balance between work, life, health and family/relationships, for people who have OI. These factors include pain, sleep, fatigue, mobility and relationships to partners/family.
The topical meeting will offer arenas to present newer research, treatment methods and news related to these topics. We will include assessment, measurement (in the clinic and clinical trials) and management of physical and psychological challenges due to the mentioned factors.
Parts of the programme will be relevant for people working with other rare bone diseases.
Friday 9th of June 09.00 – Saturday 10th of June 2023 16.00
Scandic Continental, Stockholm City Centre.
Anyone interested in the topics is welcome to attend.
- Clinicians & researchers with an interest in OI in general
- Clinicians & researchers with an interest in pain, fatigue, sleep and mobility etc
- OI-community (people with OI, family members, staff and volunteers)
- Professionals & people connected to other rare bone diseases
- Industry representatives
Our goal is to create informal networks between professionals working on these topics and to inspire new projects and ideas. We hope and believe that attendance from the OI-community will bring new ideas and perspectives. Previous Topical Meetings hosted by OIFE have turned out to be excellent arenas for international exchange between professionals, people with OI and other stakeholders interested in OI.
The conference will be a co-operation between the OIFE and the Swedish OI-organization SFOI. We will also involve OIFE’s medical advisory board & our international resource group on pain & OI in the planning process.
