Usher Network

We hope to share knowledge about research and best practice across countries and organisations. The Usher Network will be an ongoing group with discussions around new developments in working with people with Usher syndrome. We will use the group as a platform to share information and provide innovative new working practices. We will achieve this by:

  • collecting, discussing, communicating and disseminating new research and developments in Usher syndrome (medical and psychosocial research, legal developments)
  • supporting members’ requests in various countries
  • ensuring that views and current best practice related to Usher syndrome is disseminated to DbI members and collected in the network
  • communicating new developments in relevant magazines/ journals/newsletters, at conferences etc.
  • representing the interests of people with Usher syndrome at major conferences, events and in general society.
