EHC Inhibitor Summit 2016

The first Inhibitor Summit organised by the EHC took place from 1-4 December 2016 in Barretstown, Ireland – a facility founded by the American actor Paul Newman as a place designed for children living with a serious illness and their families.

The event brought together more than 100 participants, speakers and facilitators from 26 countries in Europe and beyond. The participants were of all ages and included children with inhibitors, their siblings and parents, as well as adults with inhibitors and their caregivers. All of them brought and exchanged their different experiences and practices. The programme combined short scientific lectures with practical work including on the sources of physiotherapy and pain management.

The Summit and the EIN in 2016 were made possible thanks to educational grants from Shire.
