  • CME Event: Multidisciplinary Autoimmune Disease Summit Download CME Event: Multidisciplinary Autoimmune Disease Summit to my desktop calendar

    April 28, 2018 7:30 AM - 4:00 PM The Multidisciplinary Autoimmune (AI) Disease Summit aims to provide up-to-date information on the diagnosis and management of complex autoimmune diseases with a focus on multidisciplinary care. Complex AI conditions are often difficult to diagnose and poorly managed due to inaccurate diagnosis and subsequent mismanagement. With these difficult diseases, patient care needs to be coordinated between multiple specialties at times. New advances in diagnosis and treatments have become available for these conditions. This conference will present the most commonly encountered AI conditions including dermatomyositis, psoriatic arthritis, inflammatory bowl disease, uveitis, uriticaria, scleroderma, intersitial lung disease and hepatitis in the setting of immune suppresion. Participants will leave with a better understanding of each disease, its complicated multi-systemic manifestations and treatment options. https://apps.biomed.brown.edu/cme_registration/product_info.php?products_id=437 Alpert Medical Building Medical School, Dept: Continuing Medical Education, Biology and Medicine, AMS: ConfClinic
