This enduring activity targets healthcare gaps related to the early intervention of retinal vascular diseases and familiarity with new and emerging clinical trial data, impacting outcomes through assessment and synthesis of clinical trial structures, and outcomes of studied anti-VEGF agents for incorporation into treatment strategy development.
- By addressing these gaps, you can assess whether your approach to DR, AMD, RVO, mCNV, and PCV management best applies clinical trial data to create individualized treatment regimens – or could be modified to help close these gaps.
- Expert discussion will guide you in comparing different modalities of treatment, including efficacy, durability, and challenges related to timely treatment.
- You will also be engaged with immersive animations in a whiteboard platform to memorably highlight key points related to clinical trials in mCNV, and PCV.
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of clinicians in ophthalmology or retina fellowships who manage patients with Diabetic Retinopathy (DR), Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Retinal Vein Occlusion (RVO), Myopic Choroidal Neovascularization (mCNV), and Polypoidal Choroidal Vasculopathy (PCV).
After completing the CME activity, learners should be better able to:
- Utilize an understanding of the pathogenesis of DR, AMD, RVO, mCNV, and PCV to educate patients on the importance of proper eye care and early intervention in preventing progressive visual changes
- Evaluate clinical trial data on the efficacy and safety of VEGF inhibitors in the management of DR, AMD, RVO, mCNV, and PCV
- Incorporate clinical trial data into evidence-based treatment plans for the management of patients with DR, AMD, RVO, mCNV, and PCV
