Best Practices in Rheumatology

Webcast Series

Best Practices in Rheumatology is a CME-certified educational series that provides up-to-date reviews of the most clinically important rheumatologic research data presented at the annual meetings of ACR and EULAR, with an emphasis on clinical best practices. With the rapid increase in new clinical trial and research data and the inability of clinicians to either attend or fully participate in annual meetings, this series fulfills a need for clinical experts to compile and critically appraise new evidence presented at rheumatology annual meetings and then apply it to clinical practice.
