Objective of this summit
The summit is a landmark event that aims to empower patients, promote awareness and foster collaboration between patients, doctors and all other stakeholders who will be present. It will include keynote speeches, panel discussions, interactive workshops and other activities all focused on improving the lives of people affected by ATTR amyloidosis. Experts in the field will provide an overview of the latest research findings, diagnostic tools and treatment options for ATTR amyloidosis, and will emphasize the importance of early detection and multidisciplinary care. Patients will also play a key role in this event as they will share their personal stories, challenges and successes in managing the disease so that health professionals can listen to them, address their needs (if possible) and note possible new avenues for research.
The challenges of this event
The Canadian-specific ATTR Patient Summit is not only an educational and informative event it is also an opportunity to raise public awareness and advance research. This will be an opportunity to emphasize the need for increased research funding, improved health policies and increased public awareness of the disease. Perhaps even a way to improve the lives of people affected by ATTR amyloidosis. This first-ever Canadian summit demonstrates the power of collaboration between patients and amyloidosis experts to address the day-to-day challenges they may face and improve the health and well-being of patients and their families.
