Improving Rheumatoid Arthritis Care: Understanding the Latest Approvals and Treatment Strategies
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) persists as an inflammatory condition with substantial morbidity. While the wide variety of RA treatment options continues to grow (two additional agents were approved in the last two years), rheumatologists remain challenged with staying up-to-date on the latest clinical trial data. Other gaps in RA care relate to the lack of treat-to-target (T2T) goals and shared decision-making (SDM), both of which are now important components of modern RA management. To best address these knowledge and practice gaps, it is critical that rheumatologists partake in continuing education.
“Improving Rheumatoid Arthritis Care: Understanding the Latest Approvals and Treatment Strategies,” will provide rheumatologists with current evidence regarding treatment goals and therapies for RA as well as strategies for effectively communicating with patients about their RA care.
The intended audience for this activity is rheumatologists, the main care providers for patients with RA.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Implement strategies to facilitate shared decision-making to establish treat-to-target (T2T) goals
- Evaluate the safety and efficacy data for newer RA agents
- Incorporate the latest RA therapies into appropriate treatment plans
This program is supported by an educational grant from Sanofi Genzyme and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals.
