Conference Brochure

The unusual suspects: rare diseases in everyday medicine is organized by Medics4RareDiseases (M4RD), The Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) and will be held on Feb 19, 2020 at The Royal Society of Medicine, London, England, United Kingdom.

Course Description:
Medics 4 Rare Diseases and the RSM will bring a faculty of top speakers to explore how rare diseases are relevant in everyday clinical medicine.

This event is aimed at clinicians at all stages of their training to explain why rare diseases are important to everyday medicine. We will explore how generalists can approach patients with rare diseases and become advocates for them. We will hear from a patient who suffered a long and arduous journey to diagnosis as a child and now uses her illustrations to tell her story. We will also learn about drug repurposing.

Learning objectives:
• Rare diseases in primary care
• Genomics in mainstream medicine
• A Puff of Smoke - growing up with an undiagnosed rare condition
• Drug repurposing in rare diseases
• The role of advocates in supporting patients and doctors

Topics include:
• How rare diseases are relevant to every doctor’s career in medicine
• A patient’s perspective
• Reducing the diagnostic odyssey in rare diseases
• Drug Repurposing in Rare Diseases
• How to be a rare advocate/ally
• How the work of Medics 4 Rare Diseases and the RSM Genetics Section play a role in rare disease education

Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
