Vers un Réseau de Référence Européen pour les Maladies Rares de la peau. La majorité de cette section n'est disponible qu'en anglais.

On June an application for the creation of a European Reference Netwotk (ERN) in the field of dermatology was submitted to the European Commission (EC).

The ERN-Skin, it is 56 centres of expertise in the field of rare and complex skin diseases from 18 countries gathered in one network to bring highly-specialised, high-quality and accessible healthcare closer to the patients.

The ERN-Skin has the official endorsement of the 3 main European societies in the field of dermatology :

  • the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) ;
  • the European Society of Paediatric Dermatology (ESPD) ;
  • the European Dermatology Forum (EDF).

The ERN-Skin also has the support of Eurordis.

The ERN-Skin application is coordinated by Prof. Christine Bodemer (APHP - Necker Enfants Malades Hospital - Department of Dermatology - MAGEC) with the support of Fondation René Touraine - Genodermatoses & Rare Skin Disorders Network.

The skin is the common organ with the same tools for histological diagnosis and a very specific management requiring a multidisciplinary approach and a set of highly specialised expertise and resources. A thematic dermatological networking, as the ERN-Skin, is highly essential to improve the quality and access of healthcare for patients with rare and complex skin diseases.

Les réseaux européens de référence (European Reference Network ou ERN), réunissent des professionnels de santé hautement spécialisés des différent Etats Membres de l’Union Européenne dans les domaines où l’expertise est rare.

En mettant en commun, à travers toute l’Europe, les connaissances et l’expertise,ces réseaux faciliteront l’accès au diagnostic, au traitement et à des soins de haute qualité abordables. Ces ERNs seront au coeur de la formation médicale et de la recherche, de la diffusion de l’information ainsi que de l’évaluation des soins.

Le but n’est pas de créer de nouveaux professionnels, mais plutôt des créer des liens entre des professionnels déjà existant et hautement spécialisés.

The ERN-Skin aims at enhancing high-level patient management for patients with rare complex and undiagnosed skin disorders, by improving the quality and safety and access to highly specialised healthcare.

The objectives of the network are :

  • Realise the potential of European cooperation regarding highly specialised healthcare for patients and for healthcare systems by exploiting innovations in medical science and health technologies
  • Contribute to the pooling of knowledge regarding sickness prevention
  • Facilitate improvement in diagnosis and the delivery for high quality, accessible and cost-effective healthcare for all patients with a medical condition requiring a particular concentration of expertise in medical domains where expertise is rare
  • Maximise the cost-effective use of resources by concentrating them where appropriate
  • Reinforce research, epidemiological surveillance like registries and provide training for health care professionals
  • Facilitate mobility of expertise, virtually or physically, and to develop, share and spread information, knowledge and best practices and to foster development of the diagnosis and treatment of rare diseases within and outside the European Reference Networks.
  • Encourage the development of quality and safety benchmarks and help develop and spread best practices within and outside the European Reference Network
  • Help Member States with an insufficient number of patients with a particular medical condition or lacking technology or expertise to provide highly specialised services of high quality.

Rare and Undiagnosed Skin Diseases are numerous and heterogeneous with approximately over 600 conditions. Even though rare and complex dermatological diseases are heterogeneous they can be interconnected and share common management in the care and the field of research.

Given the number of rare and complex skin disorders, a stepwise approach was adopted. The network will first focus on the following groups of diseases :

The plan is to include in the near future other groups of cutaneous and mucous membrane disordersso that every patient -including the ones suffering from “undiagnosed skin disorders”- can benefit from an appropriate diagnosis and management and also break out their isolation through the development of new patient groups.

The diseases sub-thematic approach is associated with 4 transversal groups to provide common services and tackle shared challenges : training, deep phenotyping, research & registries and clinical outcomes .

The ERN-Skin application is coordinated by Prof. Christine Bodemer (APHP - Necker Enfants Malades Hospital - Department of Dermatology - MAGEC) with the support of Fondation René Touraine - Genodermatoses & Rare Skin Disorders Network.

Le Genodermatoses Network a été co-financé de 2008 à 2011 par la Commission Européenne comme un Réseau Européen de Référence pilote pour les maladies rares (TAG grant agreement 2007 335).

Depuis 2003, le Genodermatoses Network favorise la participation d’experts et de centres prenant en charge les patients atteints de maladies rares de la peau.

Le Genodermatoses Network travaille en étroite collaboration avec les autres réseaux tels que Geneskin et EB-Clinet ainsi que les associations et fédérations de patients comme Debra International, l’European Network for Ichtyosis et Eurordis.
