in only 2 days, the INTEGRATE and  ERN ReCONNET surveys will be closed. Yet, we miss feedback from several countries, and only have 1 or 2 answers from others. It would really help our understanding of lupus and the interactions with Doctors if we had more answers from more locations. please help us gather that extra feedback by answering the surveys if you have not done yet, and by forwarding to your lupus friends… The information you will provide will be analysed by a multi-functional team, in which LUPUS EUROPE is represented, to trigger action, influence projects and/or guide decisions.

The survey is part of the INTEGRATE project (, a project funded by the European Commission involving the University of Pisa (Italy), the University of Dusseldorf (Germany) and the Sant’ Anna School of Advanced Studies (Italy).
The aim of the project is to map the needs and expectations of patients with SLE and the rheumatologists involved in their care and management in order to design strategies integrating both points of view, with the final goal to improve management and self-management of the disease.
As SLE patient you have been invited to participate to the survey, through the LUPUS EUROPE association or your clinician, to give voice to patients with SLE.

To complete the survey (in English, Italian  or German (revised)), please follow this link 
Thank you in advance for providing your feedback by  15th February 2019!
