  7. Asian Rheumatology: Facing the Challenge (12th Congress of the Asian League Against Rheumatism)

The CARE Conference was originally inspired by an informal network of nonpharmacologic/nonsurgical researchers in rheumatology in Europe and North America. CARE IV will be held September 6–8, 2006. The 3 domains of the conference will be implementation of nonpharmacologic research and models of care, knowledge transfer (the education of health professionals), and quality of life (measuring outcomes in a client-centered way). Anyone who is undertaking nonpharmacologic research in rheumatology in any of the 3 domains is encouraged to submit an abstract by May 26, 2006. The first author of accepted abstracts will receive complimentary attendance at the conference, including accommodations, and economy class flights to the UK. All accepted abstracts will be verbal presentations and attendees will be expected to take part in round table discussions and participate in the entire conference. For additional information, visit the Web site at www.leeds.ac.uk/CAREIV.
