Workshop Offers Latest Diagnostic and Treatment Strategies for Vasculitis
The Annenberg Center Experts in Residence: Focus on ANCA-Associated Vasculitis, provides a forum to explore the very latest research and emerging treatment developments for patients with ANCA-Associated Vasculitis (AAV). The CME workshop will be held at six academic vasculitis centers across the United States. Participants will obtain relevant clinical information from nationally prominent vasculitis experts through case-based presentations and peer-to-peer interactions. Following the workshops, Q&A Perspectives, an interview-style online CME activity that will feature Dr. Carol A. Langford and Dr. Ulrich Specks, will be available for participants and be promoted nationally to nephrologists, rheumatologists, pulmonologists, and other specialists interested in AAV. At the conclusion of these activities, the learners will enhance their knowledge and competence in the diagnosis and management of patients with AAV.
