UCARE LevelUp was launched in 2021 with the goal of creating an enduring educational program for physicians. The aim of UCARE LevelUp is to foster an interactive, virtual, and comprehensive environment where healthcare professionals worldwide can learn, network, and share best clinical practices in chronic urticaria (CU).
UCARE LevelUp is a global program and all formats and activities will be in English. The UCARE network aims to make available, as best and as much as possible, all UCARE LevelUp formats and activities in regional and national languages. Primary target languages are Spanish, Arabic, German, Russian, and Chinese.
The goal of all LevelUp formats is to:
- Update physicians on recent developments in urticaria,
- Establish a platform for interaction among physicians who treat patients with CU
- Improve the interaction of general practitioners and specialists
- Build strategic therapeutic plans for patients
- Improve the use of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs)
- Streamline the CU patient journey to disease control
The UCARE LevelUp program is coordinated by a Steering Committee. Each format is managed by a Taskforce.
