The Scleroderma Association of Manitoba will host the Scleroderma Society of Canada’s 15th Annual Conference in the beautiful city of Winnipeg.
Beginning Thursday September 18 continuing throughout Saturday September 20; this year’s conference will be held at the Canad Inns Destination Centre Polo Park- a fragrance free venue.
A Scleroderma diagnosis not only possesses it's own unique set of challenges, but often brings with it multi-symptomatic, secondary conditions; resulting in the need to be assessed and monitored by a wide range of health care professionals, specialists and therapists. In addition to the methods practised in today's clinical treatment of the disease; patients often seek out their own alternative methods of treatment and on the scientific frontier; more attention is being paid to, not only the physical changes caused by the disease, but the resulting psychosocial and emotional implications it may have as well.
In an effort to unify and potentially build upon the wide range of various treatment methods and ways of thinking about disease management; this year's theme, "An Integrated Approach. Creating a United Front", aims to create an atmosphere in which both patients, their loved ones and caregivers are able to interchange thoughts, ideas and treatment methods with the wide range of medical and health care professionals that often get called on to treat, manage and study this life-changing disease.
The sessions at this year's Conference range in topic from alternative treatment methods, to understanding the clinical and biological changes that can occur throughout an affected person’s body.
There's an opportunity for everyone to take something of value away from any one of our various sessions whether you're a health care provider,loved one, recently diagnosed or have been living with scleroderma for some time now.
In an atmosphere of creative thinking, patient advocacy and a variety of opportunities to share and exchange knowledge based on both theory and experience; we truly can learn so much from one another!
