Bethesda, Maryland (PRWEB) May 08, 2015
CME Outfitters (CMEO), a leading accredited provider in continuing medical education, announces its upcoming Live and On Demand activity: Taking Action Against Chronic Hepatitis B Infection, in collaboration with the Hepatitis B Foundation. The live program will launch on Thursday, June 18th at 12:00pm ET. Faculty experts Kris V. Kowdley, MD, FACP, FACG, FASGE, AGAF, Robert S. Brown, Jr., MD, MPH, and Steven-Huy Han, MD, AGAF, FAASLD will lead an interactive one-hour discussion that will challenge clinicians to improve outcomes in their patients with hepatitis B infection. Physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, nurses, and other health care professionals interested in HBV infection are encouraged to register.
CMEO’s Live and On Demand format is an online and mobile 90-minute, live, panel discussion that offers cutting-edge insights from national experts in hepatitis B. This live interactive broadcast is a key differentiator and unique to CMEO online activities. Clinicians will have the opportunity to engage in real time with faculty and with peers through Q&A and Twitter. Included in the 90-minute activity is a special 30-minute Q&A segment designed to provide learners time to ask additional questions, interact with the experts, and share challenges via phone, by using the Q&A widget on the web interface, email, or Twitter.
At the end of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Increase the rate at which health care providers screen at-risk patients for HBV infection by 20%.
- Educate and counsel HBsAg-positive patients about the significance of their serologic findings and discuss next treatment steps for HBV infection.
- Devise a plan or refer patients for ongoing monitoring, follow-up, and determination of treatment candidacy for HBV infection.
