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