Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA)
This activity is jointly provided by Partners for Advancing Clinical Education and Iridium Continuing Education.
This activity is supported by an educational grant from GSK.
- Physicians — maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™
All other healthcare professionals completing this course will be issued a statement of participation.
This educational activity is intended for rheumatologists, allergists, immunologists, pulmonologists, and specialty advance practice clinicians who care for patients with EGPA.
The comprehensive program provides up-to-date information regarding EGPA—its recognition, diagnosis, and treatment—and incorporates the patient perspective to raise awareness of patients’ needs, heighten urgency, and, ultimately, educate on the disease. The program will explore new insights into the mechanisms of EGPA immunopathogenesis. Additionally, it will provide healthcare providers with an update on standard of care treatment options based for the different EGPA stages. A multidisciplinary approach to care is necessary to achieve optimal outcomes in EGPA. As such, this activity will provide clinicians with tools to better implement multidisciplinary, patient-centered approaches to care into their clinical practice.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
- Summarize the latest EGPA guidelines regarding early diagnosis and initiation of therapy considering the manifold possible presentations of EGPA
- List the signs and symptoms that may raise the index of suspicion for EGPA
- Select standard of care treatment and management options for different EGPA stages
- Explain patient-focused, multidisciplinary management tactics that can be implemented into clinical care to improve care for patients with EGPA
