Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a heterogeneous disorder that requires an individualized approach in order to achieve goals of treatment such as mucosal healing and deep, long-term remission. The American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) released updated treatment guidelines in 2019 that include recommendations for disease stratification, prognosis, treatment options, and disease monitoring. These guidelines, along with new efficacy, safety, and comparative effectiveness data and the approval of additional therapies facilitate the identification of the right treatment for the right patient at the right time. Clinicians who care for patients with UC must ensure that they are aware of these updates and incorporate them into practice in order to optimize patient outcomes.
This CME Outfitters virtual symposium will feature the UC guideline authors discussing the newest recommendations and their translation to practice. Additionally, a shared decision-making (SDM) demonstration video will be integrated into the symposium to illustrate effective and ineffective patient-provider communication on treatment decisions.
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
- Follow the updated UC guidelines to incorporate elements of prognosis into diagnosis and treatment decision-making.
- Incorporate data on efficacy, safety, comparative effectiveness, and different routes of administration from clinical trials and real-world experience into treatment decision-making in moderate-to-severe UC.
- Implement strategies for improving patient-centered care and SDM in moderate-to-severe UC.
The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:
- Summarize the updated UC guidelines for diagnosis and treatment decision-making for patients with UC.
- Discuss data on efficacy, safety, comparative effectiveness, and different routes of administration from clinical trials and real-world experience for treatment decision-making in moderate-to-severe UC.
- Describe strategies for improving patient-centered care and SDM in moderate-to-severe UC.
