19th EULAR Annual European Congress of Rheumatology

The next EULAR Annual European Congress of Rheumatology will take place from June 13th until June 16th 2018 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. EULAR’s Annual Congress continues to be a major event in the calendar of world rheumatology and Amsterdam 2018 will again provide an unique event for the exchange of scientific and clinical information. It will be a platform to facilitate interactions between patients, carers, medical doctors, scientists, health professionals and professionals representing the pharmaceutical industry, both from within Europe and from around the world. In addition, we will also see further results from EULAR initiatives, the EULAR School of Rheumatology, the “Don’t Delay, Connect Today” campaign and the launch of the EULAR Strategy 2018 to 2023.

EULAR Congresses have, rightly so, received tremendous interest in terms of participation and quality of contributions. This also reflects the availability of increased information on the impact, burden and cost of rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases for the individual and society, and a significantly improved ability to diagnose and treat them early. The incorporation of health professional and patient organisations within EULAR has been a unique stimulus for these advances. This intensive cooperation facilitates, for instance, the implementation of recommendations for management and standards of care of musculoskeletal disorders in daily practice – of which we have seen prime examples at the EULAR Congress over the years.
