ACARE has identified the need for the development and implementation of teaching and training formats for health care professionals, scientists and other members of pharmaceutical organisations focused on recurrent angioedema. Given the rapid development of our understanding of these diseases, fellows involved in the development of new treatment options need to be up to date on the latest therapies and emerging targets for novel and better treatment options. Currently, there is only a limited number of teaching and training programs on recurrent angioedema that address this need.

To change this, we have developed a series of regional specific preceptorships on recurrent angioedema that have taken place in Japan, China and Oman with more planned. Due to the pandemic causing these in person events to cease, we put the program forward in the form of a digital program called INTERACT. Digital events have shown their value, but we see the need to have these preceptorships face to face again. The two-day program on the pathogenesis, differential diagnosis, burden and impact, prevalence, diagnostic work up, PROMs and management of recurrent angioedema are catered towards the need of fellows involved in the development of new treatment options and their positioning in clinical practice.
