Accredited By

Target Audience

This activity is intended for neurologists, headache specialists, pain specialists, NPs, PAs, and other HCPs who treat patients with migraine disorder.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Develop effective strategies for incorporating CGRP mABs into daily clinical practice
  • Formulate comprehensive management plans for migraine patients on preventative treatment
  • Review current treatment guidelines and patient eligibility for use of CGRP mABs

Activity Description

Join an expert faculty panel as they discuss incorporating anti-CGRP monoclonal antibodies into daily clinical practice for migraine prevention. This video-based session will integrate didactic presentation, a case-based panel discussion, and expert review of clinical evidence, guideline recommendations, special considerations, and real-world use.

Statement of Educational Need

Migraines represent a common, debilitating disorder that continues to be both undertreated and underdiagnosed. Ninety-five percent of chronic migraine patients do not receive appropriate diagnosis or care, and the few that do, suffer from poor long-term treatment adherence. Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) monoclonal antibodies are an emerging preventative migraine therapy class that offer benefits over traditional systemic prophylaxis. This activity will review best practices for incorporating CGRP mAbs into daily clinical practice.

Target Audience

The intended audience for this activity is neurologists, primary care physicians, and other health care professionals involved in the management of patients with Alzheimer’s disease.

Learning Objective

Upon successful completion of the activity, participants should be better able to evaluate the future treatment landscape to plan for effective patient identification and management.

Activity Description

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is an irreversible, age-related neurodegenerative disorder characterized by gradual decline in understanding, memory, and ability to perform activities of daily living. More than 5 million Americans are living with AD, which accounts for 60% to 80% of all dementia. By 2050, the number of Americans living with AD is projected to rise to 14 million. Despite this significant burden, currently approved AD treatments are symptomatic drugs that do not stop or delay disease progression, with no approved disease-modifying therapy. The latest data from emerging AD treatments suggest that early identification of AD patients is critical for optimizing outcomes. Thus, neurologists, primary care physicians, and other providers who care for these patients need education on strategies for the early identification and management of patients with AD. In this podcast, expert clinicians will discuss the future of treating Alzheimer’s disease by examining the mechanisms of action and clinical trial data of emerging agents.

Target Audience

The intended audience for this activity is neurologists, primary care physicians, and other health care professionals involved in the management of patients with Alzheimer’s disease.

Learning Objective

Upon successful completion of the activity, participants should be better able to examine the mechanisms of action, clinical endpoints, and latest clinical evidence regarding current and emerging agents for the treatment of patients with AD.

Activity Description

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is an irreversible, age-related neurodegenerative disorder characterized by gradual decline in understanding, memory, and ability to perform activities of daily living. More than 5 million Americans are living with AD, which accounts for 60% to 80% of all dementia. By 2050, the number of Americans living with AD is projected to rise to 14 million. Despite this significant burden, currently approved AD treatments are symptomatic drugs that do not stop or delay disease progression, with no approved disease-modifying therapy. The latest data from emerging AD treatments suggest that early identification of AD patients is critical for optimizing outcomes. Thus, neurologists, primary care physicians, and other providers who care for these patients need education on strategies for the early identification and management of patients with AD. In this podcast, expert clinicians will discuss the current available therapies for Alzheimer’s disease and the strengths and weaknesses of these therapies.

Target Audience

The intended audience for this activity is family practice physicians, pediatricians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other health care professionals involved in the management of patients with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Assess the impact of ADHD symptoms on functional abilities and quality of life.
  • Apply standardized assessment tools and diagnostic recommendations to identify patients with ADHD and monitor treatment effects.
  • Incorporate clinical evidence regarding efficacy and safety to select among available therapy options for patients with ADHD.
  • Develop individualized treatment plans for ADHD based on evidence-based approaches and patient characteristics.

Activity Description

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is the most common behavioral disorder in children and affects 2.5% to 5% of adults in the United States. The prevalence of ADHD in children and adolescents continues to increase. In adults, ADHD is often a continuation of symptoms that were not diagnosed in childhood, and thus is often underrecognized and undiagnosed. Clinicians are challenged to accurately diagnose and manage ADHD based on individual patient characteristics. In this Wheel of Knowledge challenge, your intellect will be tested on the latest updates in diagnosing and treating ADHD.

Target Audience

The intended audience for this activity is family practice physicians, pediatricians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other health care professionals involved in the management of patients with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Assess the impact of ADHD symptoms on functional abilities and quality of life.
  • Apply standardized assessment tools and diagnostic recommendations to identify patients with ADHD and monitor treatment effects.
  • Incorporate clinical evidence regarding efficacy and safety to select among available therapy options for patients with ADHD.
  • Develop individualized treatment plans for ADHD based on evidence-based approaches and patient characteristics.

Activity Description

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is the most common behavioral disorder in children and affects 2.5% to 5% of adults in the United States. The prevalence of ADHD in children and adolescents continues to increase. In adults, ADHD is often a continuation of symptoms that were not diagnosed in childhood, and thus is often underrecognized and undiagnosed. Clinicians are challenged to accurately diagnose and manage ADHD based on individual patient characteristics. In this Wheel of Knowledge challenge, your intellect will be tested on the latest updates in diagnosing and treating ADHD.

1.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)
Released: December 30, 2020
Expires: November 21, 2021
75 minutes to complete

Accredited By

Target Audience

This activity is intended for neurologists, headache specialists, pain specialists, NPs, PAs, and other HCPs who treat patients with migraine disorder.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Develop effective strategies for incorporating CGRP mABs into daily clinical practice
  • Formulate comprehensive management plans for migraine patients on preventative treatment
  • Review current treatment guidelines and patient eligibility for use of CGRP mABs

Activity Description

Join an expert faculty panel as they discuss incorporating anti-CGRP monoclonal antibodies into daily clinical practice for migraine prevention. This video-based session will integrate didactic presentation, a case-based panel discussion, and expert review of clinical evidence, guideline recommendations, special considerations, and real-world use.

Statement of Educational Need

Migraines represent a common, debilitating disorder that continues to be both undertreated and underdiagnosed. Ninety-five percent of chronic migraine patients do not receive appropriate diagnosis or care, and the few that do, suffer from poor long-term treatment adherence. Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) monoclonal antibodies are an emerging preventative migraine therapy class that offer benefits over traditional systemic prophylaxis. This activity will review best practices for incorporating CGRP mAbs into daily clinical practice.
