The European Society of Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus e.V. (EUSCLE e.V.) has set up a European survey on sunscreen application in patients with lupus erythematosus. LUPUS EUROPE has been closely involved in this important project.
The aim of the observational study “Sunscreens in Patients with Lupus Erythematosus (SmiLE)” is to investigate the type of sunscreen applied by patients with lupus erythematosus and efficacy in daily life. This project was winner in the category “Leadership Community” of the Galderma SKIN PACT Award 2015. Detailed information on the study, its purpose and background are provided here: http://www.galdermaskinpact.org/winners/sunscreen/.
An online questionnaire for patients has been translated into 20 European languages. Patients with any type of systemic lupus can fill out the survey. You can go to the survey at this link and participate in this important project:
