The 22nd ISSVA (International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies) International Workshop will be held in Amsterdam, Netherlands from May 29-June 1st, 2018. This biannual meeting will be co-chaired by Prof Leo Schultze Kool (co-chair of the VASCA WG and chair of the Patient Registry WG) and will be attended by specialists in from expert centres all around the world.
All of the HCP members of the VASCA WG will be represented and a large number of them will equally be speaking at the event or presenting posters. Our VASCA-WG will use this opportunity to assemble for a face-to-face meeting on Monday May 28th.
This year, for the first time, patient organisations will be actively involved and there will be a Patient Organisations meeting that will take place on the afternoon of Tuesday May 29th, 2018.
It should be noted that the promotional video for this event, which can be found below, was initiated and financed by the patient organization HEVAS, who will also be in attendance. This is a perfect example of what can be achieved with close collaboration between healthcare professionals and patients and beautifully demonstrates the true spirit of the ERNs.
