About the event


 

 

Birdshot Society Logo

In early 2015, the Birdshot Uveitis Society were pleased to announce details of the 3rd BUS Birdshot Uveitis Day which was held on Saturday 14th November 2015. The society and their supporters held the event at the Grange City Hotel, 8 – 14 Coopers Row, London EC3N 2BQ, close to Tower Hill tube station and Fenchurch BR station.


The educational day was intended for people with Birdshot Uveitis, their family members and health professionals who treat people with Birdshot or research Birdshot, or wanted to learn more about the condition. The society welcomed both old and new friends.
 

The presentations from this event can be found on the Birdshot Uveitis Society youtube channel.

Living with Birdshot

Our PPI team was approached to hold a session about “Living with Birdshot” with the aim of establishing the key impacts of the condition on daily life; how research might help; facilitate communication about Birdshotters’ experiences of the healthcare services; and compile a set of useful tips for living with Birdshot.

We surveyed the Birdshot Uveitis community before the event and Professor Andrew Dick presented the results on the day, whilst encouraging many audience members to also share how the condition affects them and to comment on their priorities for research.

We interviewed three Birdshot Uveitis patients about their experience of living with the condition (video above). These interviews were recorded and presented as part of Professor Dick's talk.
