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). Two resources are CME-accredited, an interactive case-based webcast and eLearning modules, both of which cover important topics within the diagnosis and management of FOP. Also included is the opportunity to test your knowledge through an image-based clinical diagnosis quiz, submit a case to our panel of experts for review, keep up-to-date on the latest news and find the FOP specialist center nearest to your location.
