Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Ophthalmology Volume 51, Issue 03: Uveitis Associated with Juvenile Idiopathatic Arthritis.

The goal of this program is to improve the diagnosis and treatment of uveitis associated with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Prevent vision-threatening complications in children with uveitis by early referral of patients to uveitis specialists for aggressive steroid-sparing therapy.
2. Identify patients at highest risk for development of JIA-associated uveitis.
3. Prescribe antimetabolites, antibodies against tumor necrosis factor (TNF), or other biologic agents to bring uveitis into remission.
4. Differentiate among the various types of arthritis with respect to their probable association with uveitis.
5. Screen patients with JIA for uveitis at appropriate frequencies.

The original programs were presented by Robert A. Wiebe, MD, Clinical Professor, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, and Lalit Bajaj, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Research Director, Section of Emergency Medicine, Children’s Hospital, Denver.
