Severe Asthma and the Primary Care Provider: Identifying Patients and Coordinating Multidisciplinary Care

Format: Webcast

This CME-accredited Through Your Patient’s EyesTM program is intended for primary care providers and other clinicians who manage patients with asthma. This educational activity has been designed to highlight issues faced by people living with asthma, including patients’ perspectives on the burdens of severe disease, difficulties related to suboptimal health literacy, and potential hurdles that can arise in busy healthcare practices. Specialist and primary care faculty discuss practical advice on overcoming these challenges, how to best coordinate multidisciplinary care, and actionable recommendations on identifying, comprehensively assessing, and longitudinally managing patients with severe asthma. As a result, clinician learners will be better prepared to engage and educate their patients with severe asthma, while improving long-term outcomes through personalized evidence-based care.

Where Are We Now? A Clinicians’ Guide to the Use of Follow-on Insulin for Patients with Diabetes

Format: Webcast

Insulin has been used as a standard treatment for patients with diabetes for almost 100 years.  Over time, advances in insulin development have improved its pharmacologic properties.  Most recently, the US Food and Drug Administration approved a novel, follow-on basal insulin agent, with more expected to be commercially available in the near future. With the imminent availability of follow-on basal insulin agents, clinicians need to be aware of the potential benefits and concerns in order to facilitate informed decision making and to provide the best possible advice and guidance to their patients with diabetes.  This program will review how follow-on insulin products are developed, manufactured, and receive regulatory approval; evaluate clinical trial data for new and emerging follow-on basal insulin agents; and provide practical information and guidance on how they may be incorporated into clinical practice.  While it is unknown how follow-on basal insulins will affect patient outcomes, they have the potential to increase access to treatment among patients with diabetes and reduce healthcare costs.

Major Depressive Disorder: Understanding the Significance of Residual Symptoms and Balancing Efficacy with Tolerability

Format: Webcast

Effective treatment of major depressive disorder with antidepressants is currently limited by factors that affect treatment compliance, including delay in onset of therapeutic effects and, often, intolerable side-effects. Recent data suggest that use of antidepressant combinations with different mechanisms of action may be a better first-line strategy prior to augmentation with other drug classes. The rationale for this approach is that combining multiple pharmacological actions affecting multiple monoamine targets produces greater efficacy. The latest data on multimodal therapies indicate shorter onset of therapeutic effects and improved tolerability. By modulating multiple receptors and neurotransmitter systems, it is hoped that these new agents may also treat some of the associated symptoms of major depressive disorder, such as anxiety and cognitive dysfunction.
