with French and German

Among other initiatives, the ERN ReCONNET is working on the development of organisational patient’s pathway models for rare connective tissue diseases (rCTDs) covered by the Network.

The organisational patient’s pathway models will be developed following the RarERN Path methodology, developed by the ERN ReCONNET, that provides a feasible and pragmatic approach to create a reference organizational model for patients’ care pathways taking advantage of the unique setting of ERNs represented by the large community of experts and patients involved in the Networks. This approach foresees six consecutive phases, each with different and specific aims (for more info please click here.

Based on the successful experience obtained with the Systemic Sclerosis and Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes, ERN ReCONNET developed and co-designed with a patient panel from Lupus Europe, the RarERN Path Systemic Lupus Erythematous (SLE) survey to collect the views and perspectives of SLE patients taking advantage of the narrative medicine principles.

The survey is an efficient tool to reach a high number of patients living with SLE, collect their experiences and opinions with their patient pathways as well as good practices and unmet needs of their community. All this valued information will be addressed and discussed for the development of organizational model pathways based on the RarERN Path methodology.

ERN ReCONNET believes it is important collect and integrate SLE patients’ voices and perspectives from large communities to provides crucial added value on their care.

The idea is giving this opportunity to as many patients as possible. For this reason and avoid/reduce language barriers, thanks to patient panel from Lupus Europe, the survey to collect SLE patient stories was co-designed and translated into 14 different languages: Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French (NEW), German (NEW), Greek, Icelandic, Italian, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, and Slovak.

The survey is anonymous, it will take you around 10 min to be completed.
