Overview

Growth Hormone disorders are a wide range of congenital and acquired defects of GH-IGF1 axis, leading to poor growth and potentially resulting in short stature and reduction in quality of life. Management of patients with short stature is not straightforward and healthcare providers need the best knowledge based on the most recent scientific research to face with this complex matter. This meeting aims to provide new insights from an international pool of experts, who will make it a precious opportunity to improve own ability in managing patients with GH disorders.

Learning objectives

• Recognize several genetic causes of growth hormone- IGF1 axis deficiency

• Manage growth hormone therapy in different conditions and comorbidities

• Provide patients with more complete information on long-term advantages of growth hormone therapy

• Improve the adherence of patients receiving growth hormone therapy in the light of a more appropriate use of GH-devices
