The first three congresses in Florence 2010, Madrid in 2012 and Rome 2014 have brought together colleagues involved in scleroderma from all over the world. The participation has been broad with doctors from different specialties, junior trainees, health professionals and patients. All together they have delivered a balanced program of clinical experience, interactive sessions and basic science. In particular, the patient program is growing progressively and in Rome was extensive and very well attended.
This 4th World Scleroderma Congress will try to combine the best experience we had in the previous congresses, emphasising clinically relevant developments in the field with a focus on aspects of care to improve the quality of life for patients with scleroderma worldwide. The combination of hands-on workshops, lectures, oral presentations, and sponsored sessions will provide an exciting mix of extraordinary experiences that will be put at disposal for all attendees that devote their work to people with scleroderma.
We welcome you to join us in Lisbon in 2016 to refresh old friendships and build new collaborations.
