The event will kick off with a session from our guest speaker, who will explore the value of effective and sensitive communication skills when it comes to handling complex conditions, such as rare disease. Attendees will then have the chance to speak directly with some of the I am Number 17 campaign changemakers and hear first-hand about how their diagnostic odysseys came to an end, through perseverance and working together with the help of their HCP/Consultants.
• Gain experience from communicating directly with those affected by rare disease
• Improve your understanding of rare disease and how to react when faced with a potential rare disease
• Develop your communication skills (notability how to share sensitive information and break bad news)
• Gain a certificate of attendance to exhibit your enhanced learning
We hope that learning from real-life examples will provide you with tangible learnings to take along your medical careers and ultimately equip you to Find the 1 in 17 in the future…
