… to help develop guidelines for the management of IgA vasculitis (HSP) in children

The EATC4C are in the process of developing UK guidelines on the management of children with Immunoglobulin A vasculitis (Henoch Schonlein Purpura).

They are looking for paediatric practitioners working within general paediatrics or emergency medicine, to join the UK Immunoglobulin A vasculitis guidelines development group (UK IgAV GDG).

They are particularly interested in members working within the devolved nations to ensure that the group is representative of the UK.

This is a voluntary role, and will involve attending a virtual (Zoom) meeting for one hour, once a month for approximately 12 months. You would be joining an existing working group of about 30 specialists – your task would be to provide input and expertise as part of this group, to ensure that the guidelines meet the needs of patients.

To express an interest, please email [email protected] before Monday 28 February 2022.
