JAK inhibitors have established efficacy in the management of RA; however, clinicians and patients are uncertain about their place in therapy given recent safety concerns. Join us as expert faculty lead a robust discussion, highlighting the latest clinical trial and real-world evidence regarding JAK inhibitor efficacy and safety to help contextualize risks and apply practical mitigation strategies to comprehensive care plans.
The goal of this educational program is to improve knowledge and competence among learners regarding the appropriate use of JAK inhibitors in rheumatoid arthritis to help patients attain low disease activity/remission and improved quality of life.
US- and OUS-based rheumatologists, excluding physicians located in the United Kingdom.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Review recent efficacy and safety data for JAK inhibitor therapy in RA
- Assess the benefits and risks of JAK inhibitor therapy for patients with RA based on patient comorbidities and risk factors
- Incorporate practical management and risk mitigation strategies into comprehensive care plans for patients with RA receiving JAK inhibitor therapy
