7th Scar Symposium (online symposium)

Innovative scar therapy in an interdisciplinary and interprofessional context

24.10.2020 - Berlin, Germany

The Symposium has already taken place but you can still register for the media library.

Dear Colleagues, 
Dear Sir or Madam,

This year everything is different and we have to live with all sorts of restrictions. These restrictions are justified and will hopefully be successful. At least this is how it looks like at the moment.

All big conferences have been cancelled or switched to virtual formats. Also this symposium will be an online event.

As in previous years, we would like to report on advances and the latest insights in this area of medicine. Insights from scientific research, communication of information and interdisciplinary co-operation play an important role for everyone involved in treatment. For our patients in particular.

That is why we really wanted to focus on the individual patient during this year’s programme. After all, we all work hand in hand as an integrated network to achieve the most effective rehabilitation and therefore the best possible quality of life for the patients entrusted to us.

Gain an insight into the possibilities and perspectives of modern scar therapy and use this established symposium as a platform to exchange opinions with the interdisciplinary colleagues.

We would like to thank our partners and speakers, and look forward to welcoming you at this Online-Symposium.

Best wishes and stay healthy

Dr. med. Bernd Hartmann
