Revista SRAIC Nr. 2 (aprilie-iunie 2016)
In 2016, the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) is celebrating 60 years of excellence in research and education in allergy science and patient care. EAACI congresses and meetings held over time in various European cities, provided substantial progress in the knowledge of allergic diseases and asthma, and an opportunity for exchanging ideas, friendship and collaborations. Allergies and asthma are major public health concerns, requiring priority and concerted actions. In order to mark its 60th anniversary, EAACI is rolling out an important informational campaign to its members, national and international health stakeholders and policymakers, with the aim of reframing the current conversation: from disease burden to prevention and health promotion. As allergy specialists and Romanian national allergy society members, we need to engage in this process. Thus, we all will be dedicated to allergy science in favor of a continuous commitment to patients’ health. Moreover, EAACI campaign underlines that modern control of allergies and asthma and cost-efficient prevention are available, discussing more research needs for relevant medical advice in clinical practice. As the leading European medical society focusing on allergy, EAACI aims to have consistent interaction with European Union Institutions, in order to promote allergy awareness. The European
Parliament (EP) Interest Group on Allergy and Asthma will organize in April the exhibition Test Your Allergies 2016 “Test, Inform, Prevent”, an important event at the EP in Brussels, and will present “Allergy at the forefront of EU Chronic Diseases Policy: The road towards better prevention and management of Allergy in Europe”.
Immunology (RSACI) is related to the RSACI Conference 2016, organized in partnership with the Romanian Hereditary Angioedema Network. This annual meeting is an important scientific event for the community of allergists in our country, due to the interdisciplinary approach in the focused fields of angioedema, asthma and allergy, and the participation of prestigious speakers, internationally recognized in the medical fields of interest, from Europe, United States of America and Israel. A multidisciplinary approach is important because it makes use of the skills and experience from different specialties, with each discipline approaching the patient from their own perspective, while an interdisciplinary approach brings the various disciplines together into a coherent whole which is favorable for a more patient-centred approach. Allergists and immunologists, along with other specialists in otorhinolaryngology, pediatrics, dermatology, pulmonology, emergency medicine, internal medicine and laboratory medicine, are interested in these areas of clinical practice because their patients may often present diseases or conditions in which different types of hypersensitivities are suspected or confirmed.
