This dynamic case-based activity puts you in the driver’s seat as you tailor biologic regimens for patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Make real-world decisions, customize treatment plans, and immediately implement expert guidance, all while addressing some of the most challenging clinical questions in rheumatoid arthritis.
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians and other clinicians involved in the care of patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
Upon completion of the activity, participants should be better able to:
Compare the mechanism of action of new and investigational biologic therapies for early and established rheumatoid arthritis
Assess and apply the latest clinical evidence and evidence-based recommendations when identifying individual patients with rheumatoid arthritis who may benefit from treatment with biologic therapy
Review patient and disease characteristics that may influence the integration of biologic agents into tailored treatment regimens for patients with rheumatoid arthritis
