RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS CME COURSES 

RA is a chronic disease with devastating consequences if not optimally managed early in the disease process. To effectively treat RA, appropriate treatments need to be selected, disease and treatment outcomes must be measured regularly, and patients need to be engaged in their own care.

These concepts underpin the treat-to-target (T2T) approach endorsed by the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) and the American College of Rheumatology (ACR). The availability of several new treatments beyond conventional disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) and anti-tumor necrosis factor (anti-TNF) inhibitors also increases the complexity of effective disease management.

The CME-accredited educational curricula provided here by RMEI Medical Education are designed to engage practicing rheumatology clinicians with ideas for improving the delivery of patient care. Some of the world’s foremost clinical experts on RA are featured as faculty, in video and audio dialogues with real patients. New activities and live meetings are added regularly, so be sure to check back for updates!

Rheumatoid Arthritis by the Guidelines: Best Practices in Treatment Selection and Disease Monitoring

The American College of Rheumatology recommends early intervention and treating to a target of remission or low disease activity when possible, and tight control of disease activity requires frequent disease monitoring and adjustment of therapy. Furthermore, with increasing patient engagement requirements, implementing shared decision-making strategies is critical to improve clinical outcomes. This activity addresses these issues with 2 brief patient scenarios that will challenge your decision making and provide benchmarking against other rheumatology clinicians. ...

Incorporating Treatment Guidelines and Patient Preference into Management of Rheumatoid Arthritis

Tight control of RA disease activity requires frequent disease monitoring and adjustment of therapy, as often as every 3 to 6 months. Unfortunately, ACR recommendations are sometimes not followed in clinical practice, particularly the use of disease activity measures, the application of treat-to-target recommendations, and the implementation of ACR treatment algorithms, leading to suboptimal patient care. This series of patient visit scenarios will allow you to make management decisions, benchmark your scores against those of your peers, and hear from experts in the field. ...
