After spending the weekend at the Joint Decisions Empowerment Summit, I went back across the Golden Gate Bridge to spend a couple of days attending sessions at the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Annual meeting. Here are the sessions I was able to attend this year:
Sunday, November 8th
Patient Advocacy: Patient and Professional Perspectives
Monday, November 9th
ARHP Debate: Opiods for the Treatment of Chronic Non Cancer Pain...Use or Abuse?
Pregnancy and Infertility in Rheumatic Disease
Men, Masculinity and Rheumatoid Arthritis
Tuesday, November 10th
Sexual Issues in Rheumatology: Assessment and Intervention
Pharmacotherapy: What's New In Rheumatology
Prospects for Treating Rheumatid Diseases through Modification in the Microbiome
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer: Conversations and Care
Although ARC is primarily a conference for rheumatologists and other health care professionals, I learned a lot at all of these sessions. I'll be writing about my experiences for RheumatoidArthritis.net (I'll also share links on this blog!) so keep your eye out for those articles over the next few weeks!
