The free-to-attend online course has been designed to help specialists and general paediatricians to reduce delay in the referral and diagnosis of patients with suspected MPS and alpha-mannosidosis, as well as improving the quality of patient’s lives who have already been diagnosed. On-time diagnosis is crucial for access to treatment and clinical trials, disease management and to access the proper care services at the earliest of the disease possible.

The course is an MPS Europe project in partnership with MetabERN and the Excellence in Pediatrics with the support of Biomarin, Chiesi, Orchard Therapeutics, Regenxbio, Sanofi Genzyme, Takeda, and Ultragenyx. All modules of the course are independently organised by EIP in terms of content, topics and speakers appointed.
