Updates in Improving Care of Patients With Rheumatoid Arthritis

Format: Interactive Monograph

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) remains a clinically-challenging autoimmune disorder for rheumatologists to manage. Effective patient care is critical: an estimated sixty percent of people with inadequately-treated RA are unable to work 10 years following onset of the disease. The American College of Rheumatology (ACR) has endorsed the use of several quality improvement measures in RA management, including recommended screening, disease activity assessment, and treatment guidelines. However, clinical care of patients with respect to guideline recommendations continue to be suboptimal.

An Update on Osteoporosis Pathogenesis, Diagnosis, and Treatment

Format: Webcast

An Update on Osteoporosis Pathogenesis, Diagnosis, and Treatment is an on-demand webcast CME activity.  Osteoporosis is a serious health problem that is increasing with the growth of the aging population. Left untreated, patients with osteoporosis experience considerable morbidity and increased mortality, and their care exacts a large economic burden on the health care system. Although regularly updated clinical guidelines, risk assessment tools, and effective pharmacologic agents are available for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis, data indicate that patients are not receiving the recommended level of care. In fact, the percentage of patients receiving osteoporosis treatment has declined in recent years even in those with hip fractures.
