Promote Interdisciplinarity and Learn from Each Other
As this interdisciplinary meeting format was great success in 2019 and 2021 we aim to exchange experience in immune-mediated diseases again in January 2023.
The conference is organized by the Divisions Rheumatology, Dermatology as well as Gastroenterology and Hepatology of Lausanne University Hospital. In the upcoming edition we will also invite speakers from the Division of Pneumology to contribute to an exciting program.
The aim of the Common Ground Meeting is to advance the care of patients with diseases such as psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, spondylarthritis, chronic hepatitis, nephritis, interstitial lung disease etc..
Since these patients are usually cared by several disciplines, a scientific exchange is extremely important to identify common clinical challenges and upcoming treatments.
Again, we are putting together an exciting program with lectures from leading experts in Switzerland and Europe. There will be plenary sessions with chairs from each specialty and extra time for discussions and networking.
We would be delighted to welcoming you at the Aqauatis Hotel in Lausanne on March 23, 2023.
