European Academy of Paediatrics - COVID-19 Resource center




The "Single Hub and Access point for paediatric Rheumatology in Europe"(SHARE) is a European project whose main objective is to improve the quality of care of patients suffering from Paediatric Rheumatic Diseases.


The Paediatric Rheumatology INternational Trials Organisation (PRINTO) is a not for profit, non governmental, international research network founded by Alberto Martini and Nicolino Ruperto in 1996, and initially included 14 European countries (now more than 50 and more than 350 centres worldwide), with the goal to foster, facilitate and co-ordinate the development, conduct, analysis, and reporting of multi-centres, international clinical trials and/or outcome standardisation studies in children with paediatric rheumatic diseases (PRD).

Paediatric Musculoskeletal Matters (PMM) - an open and free resource - recommended for PReS members to use in their teaching of medical students, paediatricians, family doctors and allied health professionals. PMM content includes clinical skills (pGALS, pREMS,  with videos), common clinical presentations, 'red flags' (when to be concerned and refer for specialist advice) and essential knowledge about management of rheumatic disease. PMM was developed by Professor Helen Foster and colleagues at Newcastle University, UK, with additional contributions from paediatric rheumatologists around the world to reflect variation in clinical practice. PMM-nursing (launch September 2017) targets all nurses and students working with children and young people and was developed with nurse educators and nurse specialists.


The pGALS app – an open and free resource - recommended for PReS members to use in teaching of medical students, paediatricians, family doctors and allied health professionals. Translations of pGALS into several languages have been provided by PReS members. The pGALS app was developed by Professor Helen Foster and colleagues at Newcastle University, UK.
