HEalth Professionals

The Health Professionals in Rheumatology (HPRs) programme at EULAR 2020, the European Congress of Rheumatology focus on high quality research, clinical practice and the development of HPRs to improve outcomes for people with RMDs and the quality of care they receive. 

The Congress is the pre-eminent platform for the committee of HPRs to actively liaise with HPRs across Europe, to support the development of roles and to encourage world-class clinical networking.

Abstract submission 

Health professionals can choose to submit their abstracts either for practice and clinical care or for clinical research work. Please note that when submitting to clinical research topics, your work will be scored by rheumatologists, whereas the HPR specific topics are scored by health professionals.

The abstracts submited under clinical research topics will be scored by rheumatologists, whereas the HPR specific topics are scored by health professionals. Those who are successful will be invited to present their abstract as a 10 minutes oral presentation or in a poster session at the congress.
