12 Aug Perspectives on Rheumatoid Arthritis Care: Treating to Target, Interruption of Therapy for Surgery, Co-morbidities
Rheumatoid Arthritis / Live Meeting at ACR 2015
Proving it’s possible to employ the latest trends in medical education without abandoning the sound adult learning principles that lay at the foundation of optimal learning, our RhED Talks series comprised three vibrant and compelling TED-style presentations that focused on helping rheumatologists stay in sync with the latest developments in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Presenters Alvin F. Wells, MD, PhD; Karen Hansen, MD, MS; and Sheetal Desai, MD, MSEd, explored a range of issues including the newest developments in the field, insight into measures for assessing treat-to-target outcomes, and treatment issues related to risk of postoperative infection and comorbidities that have a direct impact on clinical practice and patients. Attending rheumatologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and other HCPs who treat patients with RA were also able to participate in a question-and-answer session at the end of the presentation, bridging the gap between the new didacticism and the more traditional forums where lively dialogues allow for the crucial exchange of knowledge and ideas.
