6:30 PM – 8:30 PM: Interactive CME Activity

OVERVIEW
Significant therapeutic strides have been achieved in the treatment of the most common retinal and uveitic diseases, including retinal vein occlusion, diabetic macular edema, and uveitic macular edema. This rapid influx of new data presents a challenge to practicing retina specialists as they try to apply emerging strategies and best practice recommendations correctly to successfully achieve optimal visual outcomes with their patients.

Using interactive case presentations, this CME activity will focus on the practical application of this new information. Our goal is to help retina specialists aggregate, interpret, and apply the new data to their clinical practice, thereby meeting the specific needs of each patient as determined by his/her unique risk/benefit profile.


GOAL
To provide retina specialists with best evidence on the management of patients with retinal vein occlusion, diabetic macular edema, and uveitic macular edema.

INTENDED AUDIENCE
This activity is designed for retina specialists in attendance at 2012 ASRS. No prerequisites required.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
After attending this activity, the participant will demonstrate the ability to:
  • ASSESS clinical trial results on the management of retinal diseases and uveitis.
  • PRACTICE optimal application of best evidence during clinical case scenarios.
