What is the ROADMAP Initiative?

The ROADMAP Initiative series was designed to build a foundation of knowledge and collaboration in preparation for the PSC Partners 2022 Conference, which was June 2-5, 2022.

What topics did the ROADMAP Initiative cover?

The webinars covered four topics: Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs), PSC Research, Drug Development, and Natural History. These key topics all lead towards PSC treatments and a cure. 

Who participated in the ROADMAP Initiative?

Participants included PSC patients, post-transplant PSC patients, caregivers, clinicians, and researchers They all shared their PSC experience and hopes for the future, including finding effective treatments and a cure for PSC. These educational sessions, which were recorded, also ensure that our entire community is up to speed on topics important to all of us.

How many sessions are there and how were they organized?

Recordings of all 10 sessions are above. The webinars were divided into two sections. During the first half, experts disseminated information on the given topic.
