Nordic focus

The organizing committee and the geographic location for the annual Nordic Skeletal Dysplasia Workshop is circulating between the capitals in the Nordic countries, i.e., in 2022 the workshop was organized in Helsinki, Finland, in 2023 in Oslo, Norway, and in 2024 the workshop in planed for Copenhagen, Denmark. The board members in the organization committees differs depending on the geographic location of the workshop.

The workshop includes the following educatory elements:

1. Research Presentations: Experts and researchers present their latest findings, ongoing studies, and advancements in the field of skeletal dysplasia. These presentations cover topics such as the molecular basis of different types of skeletal dysplasia, diagnostic approaches, treatment options, and patient outcomes.

2. Clinical Case Studies: Clinicians and healthcare professionals share interesting or challenging cases they have encountered in their practice. These case presentations can provide valuable insights into diagnosis, management, and treatment strategies for specific skeletal dysplasia conditions.

3. Keynote Speakers: Renowned experts in the field are invited to deliver keynote speeches, highlighting major developments and trends in skeletal dysplasia research and clinical care.

4. Workshops and Interactive Sessions: Participants may engage in interactive sessions where they can discuss specific research questions, diagnostic challenges, or treatment dilemmas. These workshops offer opportunities for networking, collaboration, and problem-solving.

5. Poster Presentations: Attendees, including students and early-career researchers, have the chance to present their work in the form of posters. This format allows for informal discussions and feedback from other participants.

6. Industry and Sponsor Exhibits: Companies and organizations involved in skeletal dysplasia research, diagnostics, and treatment have booths or exhibits to showcase their products and services.

7. Networking Opportunities: The workshop provides ample time for attendees to interact and network with each other, fostering potential collaborations and partnerships among researchers and clinicians.

8. Continuing Medical Education (CME) Credits: The workshops offer CME credits for healthcare professionals, which is valuable for maintaining certifications and staying updated with the latest developments in the field.
