EULAR 2023 | congress pare programme

The EULAR PARE (People with Arthritis and Rheumatism in Europe) programme at  EULAR 2023, the European Congress of Rheumatology attracts a broad community, including dedicated representatives of patient organisations who use their acquired knowledge to educate and influence a wide range of stakeholders about rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs).

The Congress is the pre-eminent platform for national patient organisations across Europe to share best practices and to gain cutting-edge knowledge about the treatment, care and quality of life for people with RMDs.

Abstract submission 

We encourage the submission of abstracts to the patient perspective / PARE research track, showcasing activities and research bearing on the patient perspective and interest.

The abstracts will be scored by a panel of official representatives of PARE to the EULAR Scientific Committee. Those who are successful will be invited to present their abstract as oral presentation or in a poster session at the congress.
