The EULAR campaign Don’t Delay, Connect Today will run in Denmark in a cooperation between The Danish Rheumatism Association together with The Danish Society of Rheumatology. It is planned to run in October to mark the World Arthritis Day on October 12. During week 41 rheumatologists in 11 hospitals across the country will support the event by inviting everyone with symptoms to an ‘open hospital event’ where rheumatologists will conduct hand scans with ultrasound to everyone showing up during an afternoon on a set date.
Press releases will be sent to engage both national and loacal media.
Also there will be awareness raising activities at the pharmacies across the country where campaign material will be handed out to clients providing information on the importance of early diagnosis and to react on the early signs.
