The 3rd European Iron Academy (EIA) will take place on the 12th and 13th September 2016 in Berlin, Germany, and will bring together over 450 clinicians with an interest in iron deficiency. Iron deficiency is the most common nutritional disorder in the world and is the leading cause of anaemia2. The condition occurs frequently across multiple therapeutic areas e.g. in patients with chronic diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, heart failure and chronic kidney disease3. In such conditions, inadequately managed iron deficiency has been associated with poor patient outcomes, including increased hospitalisations, reduced quality of life and even higher mortality rates4-7.

The 3rd EIA has the goal of further raising awareness of iron deficiency and stimulating discussion amongst peers, helping them to better understand the causes, the need for improved diagnosis and the current treatment options for their patients. The 2016 programme offers delegates the opportunity to tailor the sessions to their own clinical interests/areas of expertise; engage in interactive patient case scenarios and breakout sessions; and discuss current standards in iron deficiency management with experts in Q&A-style sessions. The 3rd EIA is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) to provide participants with CME credits, and is supported by an educational grant from Vifor Pharma.

“We are delighted to be running the 3rd European Iron Academy this year, which specifically addresses the need for continuing medical education on iron deficiency,” said Professor Stefan Anker (Germany), EIA 2016 co-Chair and Professor of Innovative Clinical Trials at the University Medical Center Göttingen, Germany. “This year’s programme will review the latest data relating to the diagnosis and treatment of iron deficiency within a number of key therapy areas, including cardiology, gastroenterology, nephrology and haematology.”

The EIA will use an all-encompassing approach to education and to improving patient outcomes in many disease areas.

About the European Iron Academy

The European Iron Academy is an independent educational event developed and organised by a Steering Committee of international experts in iron deficiency and iron deficiency anaemia, which will bring together medical specialists with the aim of achieving the following objectives related to the topic:

  • Convey the latest knowledge in iron deficiency and iron deficiency anaemia
  • Discuss safety and best practice in the treatment
  • Discuss the global burden, prevalence and real-world impact across different specialties
  • Share practical clinical experiences across different specialities and treatment settings

This year’s EIA will build on the successes of previous Iron Academy meetings, which were annually held at the national-level in Switzerland since 2008, and the 2nd EIA, held in Paris in March 2015.
