Mobilising pathways to accommodate new transformative treatments – using CF as a case study
13th May 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join OPEN HEALTH for a live webinar exploring the journey of RARE pathway transformation and the introduction of disease-modifying treatments as part of their Rare Thoughts and Outcomes series.
Learn from the experiences of patients, parents, and physicians about how cystic fibrosis pathways are rapidly adapted and what learnings can be applied to other rare diseases to strive for positive outcomes for all.
Hopefully many more rare diseases will soon have disease modifying treatments that have the potential to transform patient lives. However if diagnostic, treatment and management pathways are not ready or fit for purpose then patient access will be delayed. This panel will discuss recent experiences in Cystic Fibrosis during a time when disease modifying agents were introduced. The panel will discuss this revolution in the treatment of this disease through the eyes of patients, parents and physicians to explore what can be applied to accelerate pathway development in other rare diseases.
