Updates

IMPORTANT: Abstracts online availability

Due to technical limitations, and in order for the EADV to be able to safeguard the proper application of the embargo policy, abstracts will become available on October 2 only to registered journalists and EADV active members. Congress participants will be able to pick up the Abstracts CD-ROM at the Congress.

IMPORTANT: EADV CONGRESS SCAM ALERT

It has been brought to our attention that our congress exhibitors and registered participants are being targeted by SCAM companies pretending to be the EADV.

Some of these companies are pretending to offer EADV Housing Services, EADV Exhibition Housing Management, and registration to the EADV Congress at lower rates.

THE EADV HAS NO AGREEMENT WITH THESE COMPANIES.

BEWARE OF THE SCAMS! Please DO NOT provide them with your credit card/personal information/ confirmation emails, or any details of your reservation.

Please TRUST ONLY emails from the following domains:
@eadv.org
@eadvcongress.org
@eadvsymposium.org

Patient Village – New in Copenhagen!

Patient Village – New in Copenhagen!

For the first time, the EADV has organised a Patient Society Village during its 24th Congress where 10 International Patient Societies will be present, with the aim of bridging the gap and strengthening dialogue with healthcare professionals.

Patient organisations are committed to support education, advocacy programmes and are the link between patients suffering from particular conditions and the most highly ranked doctors in dermatology and venereology.

The collaboration of these two partners – the first giving their day-to-day testimony and concerns,  the second providing medical knowledge and experience – is one way in which to develop understanding  and reach a higher status, consciousness  and clinical care.

The village will be strategically located near the Exhibition Area and the Session Rooms and you are kindly invited to stop by to meet and chat with the various society representatives, who will be delighted to get to know you.

Here you have a list of the societies who took the opportunity to be in Copenhagen with us and that look forward to making new connections with both professionals and exhibitors:

AAD Danish Asthma and Allergy Association

A.DI.PSO Association for the Defence of Psoriasis Patients

AEF Atopisk Eksem Forening

APL Association of People Suffering from Psoriasis

EDIN International Ectodermal Dysplasia Network

EUROPSO The European Umbrella Organisationfor Psoriasis Movements

GAAPP Global Allergy and Asthma Patient Platform

IADPO International Alliance of Dermatology patient organization

IFPA International Federation of Psoriasis Associations

Patientforeningen HS-Denmark Danish Hidradenitis Supporativa Patient Association

Dermatopathology in the digital age

Places limited to 50 participants
Friday, 9 October, 2015
13:30-16:30

Following its previous success in Istanbul and Amsterdam, a new clinico-pathological course using virtual dermatopathology will be held during the Congress in Copenhagen. This interesting technology allows participants to use their own laptops as microscopes to view digitally scanned histopathological slides. The online software enables changes from low to higher power, as well as rotating sections 360 degrees.

The course begins with a review of 20 intriguing cases online. The participants will have internet access to clinical information, clinical photographs and digital histopathological slides relevant to each case, as well as multiple-choice questions through the software. Once the questions have been answered and submitted, brief lectures will be given by the faculty on the key features of the cases. The participants will receive hand-outs in pdf format, with the correct answers to the questions, discussion about the cases and references.

This course will give the participants hands-on experience in the use of virtual dermatopathology (VDP) in clinico-pathologic correlation and examinations. This experience can be applied in online consultations, CME/CPD, resident education and certification examinations where VDP is used.

The faculty includes an international team of speakers who have considerable experience in VDP and related software:  Ellen Mooney (Chair), Gürkan Kaya (Co-Chair), Ismini Vassilaki (Co-Chair), Christina Mitteldorf and Jacqueline Junkins-Hopkins.

Registered participants will receive an instruction letter by e-mail with a link to the software. Participants must create a username and password enabling them to both, practice using the software and most importantly, obtain online access prior to the course. Participants must also bring their own laptop to the course.

THIS COURSE IS FULL. Registration for this course has been closed.
