The goal of this symposium is to expose health professionals and scientists with up-to-date information on Anderson-Fabry Disease.
Following the program, all registrants will have access to lecture video recordings for ONE month.
-Describe the pathophysiology of Fabry disease, including the molecular mechanisms underlying the accumulation of glycosphingolipids and the resulting cellular and tissue damage.
-Identify the clinical signs and symptoms of Fabry disease, including early and late-onset presentations, to facilitate early diagnosis and management of the disease.
-Evaluate the available diagnostic tools and techniques for Fabry disease, including genetic testing, enzyme activity assays, and imaging studies, to effectively diagnose the disease and guide appropriate treatment decisions.
-Develop a multidisciplinary management plan for patients with Fabry disease, including enzyme replacement therapy, pain management, and preventive measures to address the multisystem involvement of the disease and improve patient outcomes. This should also include the management of complications such as renal failure, cardiovascular disease, and stroke.
The course targets health professionals in the broad fields of primary care, pediatrics, geriatrics, neurology, psychology, psychiatry, and cardiology, as well as scientists. This course is open to medical doctors, researchers, nurses, physician assistants, fellows.
