Bethesda, Maryland (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
CME Outfitters (CMEO), a leading accredited provider in continuing medical education, is calling all physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists who treat and counsel patients with overactive bladder to participate in the CMEO 3-Part Webcast Strategies to Improve Adherence and Clinical Management of Overactive Bladder. The 3-module webcast can be accessed and viewed online at any time. CMEO launched the OAB online modules on Monday, June 10, 2013, as a continuation of the educational messages presented during an interactive symposium at the American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting. Recognizing the educational trends of online activities and learning preferences of busy clinicians, the symposium has been divided into three short modules, each aligned with the learning objectives and featuring a video patient case that demonstrates the complex challenges of treatment and medication adherence in patients with OAB at various stages of life. The webcasts feature an interactive discussion between faculty members Sender Herschorn, BSc, MDCM, FRCSC, and Christopher Chapple, BSc, MD, FRCS (Urol) FEBU that will improve clinician knowledge and performance related to discussions with patients about optimal treatment plans and medication adherence in the management of overactive bladder. Michael B. Chancellor, MD is featured in video case vignettes in each module. At the conclusion of the modules, participants should be able to:
- Module 1: Recognize the prevalence of OAB and the impact of symptoms on quality of life.
- Module 2: Evaluate the available treatment options in order to develop an individualized treatment plan that considers efficacy, safety, and contributes to improved medication adherence.
- Module 3: Initiate a communication dynamic that provides information on current and emerging treatments for OAB and the impact of medication adherence on patients outcomes.
In order to improve adherence and quality of life for patients with OAB, a proactive and multifaceted approach is needed by clinicians. Frequent and open discussions about side effects or other barriers to pharmacological treatment, or to modify treatment plans and medications can improve adherence. Recommending combined behavioral, psychosocial, and pharmacological therapies along with routine discussions about adherence to treatment can improve the dialogue about the overall management of OAB.
