This session was master-minded by Prof Jean Bousquet, with the support of two MEPs who coordinate the parliament special interest group on airways disease (David Borrelli and Sirpa Pietikainen), in conjunction with EUFOREA-ARIA, the European Forum for Research and Education in Allergy and Airway Diseases section on Allergic rhinitis and its impact on asthma. The programme and speaker details here.
A distinguished group of scientists made brief presentations on the scientific rationale for prevention of chronic airways diseases and the meeting then heard a brief address from Martin Seychell, Deputy Director of DG Sante on the EU’s role in this field.
Then followed two brief sessions on the launch of the European Patient Support Platform where Prof Bousquet introduced an ongoing trial of a phone app for patients with allergic rhinitis to monitor their condition. The last session was on innovative management strategies and DS for EHFF spoke about the PROSTEP project, his presentation here.
Other presentations may be available soon from the insermed.fr website. If so, they will be added subsequently.
