Within the Mycophenolate Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) system, one of the key requirements is that health care providers (HCPs) monitor mycophenolate-treated patients of reproductive potential for pregnancy both prior to initiation of treatment as well as routinely throughout the treatment course. HCPs are also responsible for appropriately responding to any pregnancies that do occur in the setting of mycophenolate treatment. It is imperative that HCPs are thoroughly educated on providing appropriate counsel to these patients as well as the importance of reporting the pregnancy to the Mycophenolate Pregnancy Registry, which was established with the goal of analyzing mycophenolate-exposed pregnancies and their outcomes in an effort to advance understanding of mycophenolate exposure in utero.
In part three of this REMS CME Outfitters Snack series, Lisa Coscia, RN joins host/moderator Dr. Steven Gabardi to provide guidance on appropriate monitoring strategies for pregnancy as well as the importance of reporting any pregnancies that do occur to the Mycophenolate Pregnancy Registry.
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
- Monitor patients of reproductive potential for pregnancy to report to Mycophenolate Pregnancy Registry.
This activity is supported by an independent educational grant from the Mycophenolate REMS Group. This activity is intended to be fully compliant with the Mycophenolate REMS education requirements issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
