Last Opportunity to Earn CME with Free IBD Webinars

Oct. 27, 2015

Learn how to avoid iatrogenic injury to patients with IBD before the CME expires on Nov. 5.

AGA, in partnership with CECity and Vindico via a grant from Abbvie, has developed two free online CME on-demand programs to help mitigate injuries of patients with IBD who receive care that is not recommended by practice guidelines. Be sure to take advantage of these two learning opportunities soon, as the CME expires Nov. 5 for both programs.

Each program offers a maximum of 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for a total of 1.0 credits if both are taken.

The first program, AGA Quality Improvement Measures for IBD Risk Assessment Strategies, teaches participants to better classify IBD  according to type and activity, and institute appropriate screening strategies when managing patients on long-term corticosteroids and anti-TNF therapy.

The second program, AGA Quality Measures for Preventive Strategies in Patients with IBD, shows how to avoid iatrogenic injury by implementing quality improvement measures aimed at administering appropriate vaccinations and the appropriate use of corticosteroid-sparing therapies. In addition, the program discusses smoking cessation therapies and relevant counseling strategies.
