This Members’ Day will focus on AS flares. Dr Gareth Jones from the University of Aberdeen will present on the research he has conducted into AS flares and we will be running workshops which will help you develop your own personal AS flares first aid kit, led by occupational therapist Clare Clark and physiotherapists Sue Gurden and Claire Harris. Included in the workshop will be:
- What is a flare
- Pain management including Mindfulness
- Managing symptoms, pacing techniques and fatigue
- Communication techniques
- Exercising during a flare
- Plus a lot of opportunity to discuss your experiences and tips
We will also have a talk on how AS should be managed from Dr Lisa Dunkley, consultant rheumatologist in the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield, an update on the genetic research being conducted at Oxford University, and time to share experiences with other NASS members.
