FOP: Recognition, Treatment and Hope - an independent educational program provided by Springer Healthcare IME

In collaboration with Dr. Robert Pignolo and an international faculty of experts, Springer healthcare IME has developed an independent educational program entitled, FOP: Recognition, Treatment and Hope. Highlighting a rare disease that is too often under-diagnosed or misdiagnosed, this free-to-access program aims to raise awareness and highlight the advances being made which have the potential to change the outlook for people with fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP). Delivered in a variety of educational formats, the program covers key signs and symptoms, how to reach a diagnosis safely, the current best practice in management (including complications), and experimental treatment options looking to change the lives of patients with this condition.
