This was the 7th IMAGE conference which focuses on dysmorphic and genetic short stature syndromes and transitional care.
The aims of the symposium were to provide quality education, based on practical clinical experience, on all aspects of the nurse’s role related to the management of disorders of appetite (eg Prader-Willi syndrome, simple obesity), late endocrine effects of childhood cancer treatment, family interaction related to chronic disease, clinical and diagnostic reasoning related to growth and puberty cases.
The main focus of the meeting was disorders of the thyroid gland, but transitional care of patients with growth hormone disorders and adherence to growth hormone were also discussed.
