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.

Long-Acting Reversible Contraception: An Important Solution to Reduce Unintended Pregnancy

Format: Webcast

The content for this activity is based on the satellite symposium Long-Acting Reversible Contraception: An Important Solution to Reduce Unintended Pregnancy that was presented at The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) Annual District II Meeting in New York, New York, on October 22, 2016.  Despite the availability of numerous contraceptive options, almost half of all pregnancies in the United States are unintended, creating a substantial negative health and socioeconomic burden on women and their families. The most commonly used contraceptives are dependent on adherence and “perfect use” to be efficacious, while long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) offer the lowest failure rates primarily because they are user-independent. Greater use of the highly effective LARCs may provide one solution to the persistent problem of unplanned pregnancies and improve women’s and children’s health.  This event was neither sponsored nor endorsed by ACOG.
