Target Audience

The intended audience for this activity is pulmonologists, rheumatologists, internists, radiologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other health care professionals involved in the management of patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD).

Learning Objectives

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

  • Apply the latest technologies and guidelines to the timely recognition of patients with ILD as well as the accurate determination of subtype.
  • Apply knowledge of the latest long-term and real-world evidence to the early and sustained treatment of patients with IPF.
  • Assess the latest clinical evidence regarding the treatment of patients with ILD.

Activity Description

Interstitial lung disease (ILD) encompasses a large group of pulmonary conditions characterized by tissue scarring, or fibrosis. Lung damage associated with ILD is often irreversible and may be progressive. Various causes have been identified, including long-term exposure to hazardous materials (e.g., asbestos); bacterial, viral, and fungal infections; and autoimmune connective tissue diseases affecting the lung. In some cases, the underlying cause remains unidentified. Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is the most common ILD, but there is a large and diverse group of patients who develop a progressive fibrosing phenotype of ILD (PF-ILD) who do not meet IPF diagnostic criteria but have a similar natural history and prognosis. Historically, treatment options for ILD have been limited, but new agents and indications have been approved in recent years. It is critical that pulmonologists, rheumatologists, and other providers who care for patients with ILD are aware of the latest clinical evidence on optimal treatment approaches for various ILD subtypes. In this two-part educational series including clinical cases, expert clinicians will discuss the latest evidence-based approaches to diagnosis, classification, and management of patients with ILD. Faculty also will review clinical trial and real-world data to support optimal treatment and improved outcomes for patients with ILD.

  • Utilize a multidisciplinary care team, including the patient, to optimize outcomes for patients with ILD.

Activity Description

Interstitial lung disease (ILD) encompasses a large group of pulmonary conditions characterized by tissue scarring, or fibrosis. Lung damage associated with ILD is often irreversible and may be progressive. Various causes have been identified, including long-term exposure to hazardous materials (e.g., asbestos); bacterial, viral, and fungal infections; and autoimmune connective tissue diseases affecting the lung. In some cases, the underlying cause remains unidentified. Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is the most common ILD, but there is a large and diverse group of patients who develop a progressive fibrosing phenotype of ILD (PF-ILD) who do not meet IPF diagnostic criteria but have a similar natural history and prognosis. Historically, treatment options for ILD have been limited, but new agents and indications have been approved in recent years. It is critical that pulmonologists, rheumatologists, and other providers who care for patients with ILD are aware of the latest clinical evidence on optimal treatment approaches for various ILD subtypes. In this two-part educational series including clinical cases, expert clinicians will discuss the latest evidence-based approaches to diagnosis, classification, and management of patients with ILD. Faculty also will review clinical trial and real-world data to support optimal treatment and improved outcomes for patients with ILD.

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.

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.
