Start

Activity Details

Free CME
0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)
Released: December 10, 2020
Expires: December 10, 2021
30 minutes to complete

Accredited By

Target Audience

This activity is intended for pulmonologists, pathologists, radiologists, infectious disease specialists, primary care physicians, and other healthcare providers who care for patients with COVID-19.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Describe the presentation and impact of COVID-19 infection in patients with progressive pulmonary fibrosis
  • Implement strategies to best manage patients with both COVID-19 infection and progressive CF-ILD
  • Incorporate recommendations to appropriately monitor patients with COVID-19-related acute lung injury or ARDS

Activity Description

What have we learned about COVID-19 and interstitial lung disease (ILD)? What do we know now about the potential for fibrosis in those who develop severe COVID-19? This 30-minute “Hot Topics” CME activity, featuring leading pulmonology expert Tanzira Zaman, MD, will break down the key insights as well as the latest trial data and recommendations. This activity will feature text and charts with interspersed short video snippets. Dive into this ever-engaging story and learn more!

Statement of Educational Need

Patients with CF-ILD are, unfortunately, a significantly high-risk group for mortality with COVID-19. Therefore, optimal awareness of both COVID-19 and ILD management is essential. After completing this activity, clinician learners will be better able to evaluate for comorbid COVID-19 infection and ILD, as well as improve the care and management of patients who present with both of these conditions.

0.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)
Released: November 23, 2020

45 minutes to complete

Accredited By

Target Audience

This educational initiative has been designed for genitourinary oncologists, medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiologists, urologists, nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistants (PAs), clinical nurse specialists (CNSs), advanced practice nurses (APNs), oncology clinical nurses (OCNs), and clinical oncology pharmacists (BCOPs) involved in the care and coordination of patients with urothelial carcinoma (UC).

Learning Objectives

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

  • Articulate the mechanisms of action of targeted biopharmacologics and immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) used in the treatment of UC
  • Outline efficacy and safety findings from key clinical trials of approved and investigational novel treatments developed for the treatment of advanced or metastatic UC (mUC)

Statement of Educational Need

In advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma (UC) a heavily cytotoxic “sledgehammer” approach has traditionally been used. Platinum-based chemotherapy is still the preferred first-line approach. But this non-specific cytotoxic treatment is often intolerable for the typically older UC patient.

Until recently, there were no second-line options beyond the chemotherapeutic sledgehammer. Today, treatments with more selective mechanisms of action take advantage of fresh translational insights into UC.

These novel therapeutics offer more efficient targeting for patients who have run out of options. But for clinicians, the introduction of these agents complicates an already complex condition. This activity will guide them in selecting and using these options.

In this case-based activity you will navigate a simulated patient case, making clinical decisions when prompted. Feedback regarding your decisions will be provided as you move through the case.
