“Pnrr funds to eliminate local assistance gap”

“We rely on the NRP to eliminate the inequalities that exist at the regional level as regards assistance and care. Today, depending on where you are born and where you are treated, the type of assistance you receive probably also changes. today, thanks to the funds that will come to redesign our health system, inequalities can be eliminated to achieve uniformity of care. ”This was stated by Antonella Celano, president of the National Association of People with Rheumatological and Rare Diseases (Apmarr), on the sidelines of the conference organized by the association entitled “Integrated territorial assistance in rheumatology”, which was held in Rome, in the Zuccari room of Palazzo Giustiniani.

“To arrive at a diagnosis, one must first know the pathologies of rheumatic diseases – added Celano – for this reason today we have launched a communication campaign. The goal is to make people understand our movement difficulties, the difficulties of the joints that are unable to carry out the activities of daily life. We did all this thanks to Lorenzo Marini who created a video spot that will accompany our future and our activities. In the commercial there is the metaphor of a rope that prevents the joints from moving ”.

Regarding the critical issues of patients, Celano added: “The pandemic period has highlighted a series of territorial shortcomings for the assistance of patients suffering from rheumatic diseases. Today we are asking for an implementation of local services and the treatment path to make it easier. Information is essential to allow people to recognize the symptoms that the body sends and to arrive at an early diagnosis. In fact, the latter is a formidable weapon to arrive at an early and appropriate treatment that allows people to resume their own times. We rheumatic patients – he remembers – in fact have a very long time, we have a morning stiffness that sometimes even prevents us from arriving on time at the workplace. Therefore, territorial assistance is needed to meet patients and the possibility of reaching services that are redesigned according to their needs ”, concluded the president Apmarr.
