Systemic Autoimmune Diseases

30.juin - 01. Juil, 2023 Cod. O08-23


Systemic autoimmune diseases (SAD) continue to be a big challenge for clinicians, given their complexity, clinical variability and potential impact in the life of patients, many of them young women.

Over the last 8 years, the Autoimmune Diseases Units from Cruces and Bordeaux University Hospitals have established a collaborative clinical and research program, including joined Lupus-Cruces and Lupus-Bordeaux research projects and annual Basque Lupus Seminars at Baiona.

In the 2018, 2019, 2021 and 2022 editions of the University of the Basque Country Summer Courses at Donostia (the 2020 course was unfortunately cancelled die to the COVID-19 pandemic) we have contributed with the course Enfermedades Autoinmunes Sistémicas / Systemic Autoimmune Diseases. It has been conceived as a practical course, remarking the importance of a collaborative multidisciplinary approach and including real-life clinical situations from our two Units with an interactive approach.

This proposal for the 2023 edition follows the same scheme than the previous courses, with agile round tables, short and frequent breaks and plenty of room for debate among speakers and assistants. As in previous editions, we include a section of clinical images and another of challenging clinical case presentation and discussion based on daily practise, with the aim of stimulating the participation of attendees.
