EXPERT STRATEGIES FOR FACIAL REJUVENATION UTILIZING LONGER-ACTING DERMAL FILLERS

In the demanding field of aesthetic medicine, insufficient knowledge and skills can contribute to improper treatment and inferior patient outcomes with regard to efficacy and safety. A significant gap exists between the need for quality education and training for those interested in advanced practice of facial rejuvenation and the expert training that is currently available. This is especially true regarding longer-lasting soft tissue fillers. Clinicians clearly want and need additional education on the safe and effective use of these agents. This CME-certified activity will pay particular attention to advanced uses of longer-lasting soft tissue fillers as a fundamental component of individualized facial rejuvenation.

ADVANCES IN HEART FAILURE PHARMACOTHERAPY

"Advances in Heart Failure Pharmacotherapy" is a 1-hour interactive Webinar developed from a video recording of a live presentation on managing heart failure (HF), an installment of the "Tall Rounds" series of the Cleveland Clinic's Heart and Vascular Institute. An expert multidisciplinary faculty answers a number of crucial management questions in their presentation: How should novel medications be incorporated into the careof HF patients? When should aldosterone receptor antagonists be instituted? When can the combination agent sacubitril/valsartan be considered? What about ivabradine? What are various characteristics of these novel agents - a verse effects, dosage titration, and contraindications? Last, how can multidisciplinary care teams produce better outcomes, as evidenced in part by the Cleveland Clinic experience? These topics are made more immediate and practical through the use of an actual Cleveland Clinic HF case and participant-interactive polling questions.

DELVING DEEPER INTO THE COMPLEXITIES AND PERPLEXITIES OF ORAL ANTICOAGULATION

You've reached the decision to move away from warfarin and prescribe a novel oral anticoagulant (NOAC) for your patient, to reduce the risk of stroke in nonvalvular atrial fibrillation or to prevent or treat venous thromboembolism. But next steps can be daunting: With which 1 of 4 available NOACs do you individualize therapy? At what dosage? Will age, renal function, or concomitant medications factor into your strategy? And what protocols and agents do you employ when it's necessary to reverse anticoagulation in a patient taking a NOAC who is bleeding or requires surgery? Through challenging case reviews, three experts from Harvard's Brigham and Women's Hospital answer these and other questions about providing safe and efficacious use of NOACs.

THE ROLE OF EMERGING THERAPIES IN THE MANAGEMENT OF PEMPHIGUS VULGARIS

Pemphigus vulgaris (PV) is a rare autoimmune mucocutaneous blistering disease associated with significant morbidity when not treated promptly. The advent of corticosteroids largely eliminated the mortality risk associated with pemphigus, but exposes patients to risk of bone loss and infection and is contraindicated in some patients. While the rarity of this disease has challenged the development of randomized controlled trials, other agents have shown promise. This interactive web monograph provides an overview of PV and its diagnosis and current treatment as well as data on the safety and efficacy of emerging adjuvant and alternative therapies such as mycophenolate mofetil, intravenous immunoglobulins, rituximab, dapsone, and methotrexate.

THE EVOLVING ROLE OF ORAL ANTICOAGULATION IN INTERNAL MEDICINE: NVAF, DVT, AND PE BEST PRACTICES

Internal medicine clinicians (IMs) are on the frontlines of managing patients who are eligible for direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC) therapy, including those with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) who are at risk for stroke, and those with venous thromboembolism, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and/or pulmonary embolism (PE), who may be at risk for recurrence. This educational initiative, "The Evolving Role of Oral Anticoagulation in Internal Medicine: NVAF, DVT, and PE Best Practices," provides expert-led, evidence-based guidance on the practical, safe, and effective use of DOACs for the optimal treatment of eligible patients in internal medicine. This case-based education will help IMs tailor DOAC use to a variety of clinical scenarios, including special patient populations (eg, elderly or renally impaired patients), while contemplating a broad range of important considerations related to the indications, contraindications, dosing, and pharmacology of the individual agents. It will also address the management of DOACs in the presence of common clinical challenges such as bleeding or the need for surgery.

NONWARFARIN ORAL ANTICOAGULANTS (NOACS): THE CLINICAL PHARMACIST'S PERSPECTIVE

Few topics are as relevant - or of as intense interest - to contemporary pharmacy practice as the appropriate use of nonwarfarin oral anticoagulants (NOACs) approved by the FDA in January 2015. NOACs offer distinct advantages over warfarin; they have a rapid onset of action, more predictable pharmacologic profiles, and significantly reduced food and drug interactions. This activity offers education for clinical pharmacists on the latest evidence surrounding the different indications for NOACs, proper dosing strategies, management of bleeding, counseling patients on the safe use of NOACs (and how they differ from warfarin), managing and monitoring for food-drug and drug-drug interactions, and managing care transitions.

UPDATES IN CHEMOTHERAPY-INDUCED NAUSEA AND VOMITING: THE ONCOLOGY NURSE AND ONCOLOGY NURSE PRACTITIONER'S PERSPECTIVES

Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) is a highly debilitating side effect of chemotherapy. CINV is common, causing symptoms in up to 30% of all patients who undergo chemotherapy, and occurring in up to 90% of patients who receive highly emetogenic agents such as cisplatin-, doxorubicin-, and cyclophosphamide-containing regimens. The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) voted modern antiemetic therapy as one of the top 10 advances in modern oncology because antiemetic therapy is an advance that marked one of the "major turning points for cancer care and improved and saved the lives of countless Americans." In this interactive video webinar advanced practice oncology NPs and oncology RNs share and discuss their extensive and unique experiences in managing patients suffering from or at risk of developing CINV, including nuances of antiemetic agents and experiential strategies for positioning antiemetic therapies, as well as how to educate patients regarding CINV and its prevention and treatment.

RECENT ADVANCES AND EMERGING TRENDS IN ONYCHOMYCOSIS MANAGEMENT: A SERIES OF LIVE CME SATELLITE SYMPOSIA AND AN ENDURING ON-DEMAND WEBINAR

Onychomycosis - a chronic infectious disease with significant medical and psychosocial consequences - can be extremely challenging to eradicate. To manage onychomycosis effectively, clinicians need to understand the etiology, diagnosis, and management of onychomycosis as a chronic infectious disease. They must also understand the characteristics of current topical, systemic, and mechanical treatments and be able to appropriately integrate new and emerging therapies into their practice based on treatment benefits and risks and patient factors. This initiative was designed to educate dermatologic clinicians on recent advances and emerging trends in onychomycosis management based on evidence from clinical trials, data on newer antifungal agents, and expert opinion and recommendations.

ADVANCES IN ATOPIC DERMATITIS: EXPERT INSIGHTS INTO NEW AND EMERGING THERAPIES

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic, inflammatory, relapsing disorder that can result from a number of different factors including genetics, immune system dysfunction, and possibly environmental exposures. Because there is no known cure, treating patients with AD can be challenging and often frustrating for both the clinician and the patient. This CME provides information on the role of immune abnormalities and skin-barrier dysfunction in the development of AD and how this understanding informs and can help guide treatment selection. Expert faculty will discuss the 2014 AAD guidelines and other recent guidelines for diagnosis and management of AD, and summarize data on current and emerging topical and systemic therapies to help providers optimize treatment outcomes.
