Medical Crossfire®: Current and Emerging Approaches in Non-Infectious Uveitis — An Expert Discussion on Improving Patient Outcomes

Release Date: September 15, 2020
Expiration Date: September 15, 2021

Activity Overview

The Medical Crossfire™, one of PER’s signature educational formats, is a video-based program in which a panel of distinguished experts engage in spirited discussions and debates on a particular clinical topic. In this activity, four key thought leaders explore the latest data regarding current and emerging therapeutic strategies for the management of noninfectious uveitis. This lively discussion will help place new developments into clinical context to help you optimize care for your patients with noninfectious uveitis.

Non-infectious uveitis is a debilitating condition that can be challenging to treat. Failure to appropriately recognize and treat noninfectious uveitis can result in inappropriate or inadequate treatment and missed opportunities to improve patients’ symptoms and quality of life. Maintaining a practical working knowledge and staying current on the evolving practice patterns associated with noninfectious uveitis can be difficult, especially with other competing priorities and the demands of a busy schedule. The purpose of this CME activity is to update clinicians on clinically relevant data regarding noninfectious uveitis, including available treatment options as well as emerging therapies so clinicians can provide optimal care to improve patient outcomes.
