THE Lupus Group of WA will hold a Questions and Answers session on July 18 at Royal Perth Hospital from 8:30am until noon.

Lupus patients, relatives and friends of lupus sufferers are welcome to ask a panel of specialists and a GP questions about the disease.

At the meeting, details of a new online education module to assist GPs in diagnosis and management of lupus will be explained.

The module was funded by the Lupus Association of NSW, who conducted a survey of NSW.

The lecture will be held in the Bruce Hunt Lecture Theatre, at the Wellington Street entrance.

Give us a report on what you learn from these docs. I would love to be there, asking some of the difficult questions that we discuss here.
It will be interesting to hear about it.

I am not sure if I will actually attend now, things are pretty tough for me at the moment, and apart from that, I have a cold. I will see how I go after school tomorrow. If anyone else is planning to go, I might reconsider. BUT it does sounds pretty interesting.

I am not sure about sitting in an uncomfortable chair for approx 4 hours, my principal let me buy a super dooper chair for school, and all the other chairs are just not the same.

Linda it would be a shame not being able to go but i can well understand your feeling about 4hrs on an hard chair...i would'nt be able to move at all.

All the best with your cold mate and i hope it heals quicker than mine. xxx

I cant believe I forgot about this!!! I saw it advertised a while ago and definitely wanted to go...shame i forgot. I think I'll blame that on the lupus :)

Yes it was good, met a few people and chatted. There was a immunologist, GP, Nephrologist and a Research Scientist on the panel. It was basically an open question forum. Very informative, and the panel were very easy to talk to and explained things pretty un-doctor like.

good to hear - i went to something at the arthritis foundation last year and they had a rheumatologist there, but didn't really feel like i got much information that i didn't already know.
