GCA-PMR Spectrum Meeting Videos

Posted on 11 July 2024

In May, our patron Professor Bhaskar Dasgupta and Dr Christian Dejaco chaired a study meeting to show what is considered best practice for diagnosis and treatment of PMR, GCA and LVV. It was primarily aimed at consultants but charity members were also invited to attend.

The day was attended by a host of medical experts working at the forefront of PMR and GCA either with patients, in research or both. Representatives from PMRGCAuk and PMR-GCA Scotland, and patients also attended, along with charity members who were able to participate via Zoom.

There were presentations from the two charities, patients and rheumatology practitioners, with discussions on current experience in diagnosis and treatment and a range of ideas to improve these by aligning the illnesses with other rheumatological conditions.

It was a particularly full day. A more detailed write up will appear in our member magazine which is out in August and links to recordings from the day can be accessed here.
