The CAAIDiology Educational Series is designed to update and educate clinicians about the most salient autoinflammatory disease issues to improve this population’s outcomes. Childhood autoinflammatory disease (CAID), also known as periodic fever syndrome, is a group of rare hereditary recurrent unprovoked inflammation disorders. Current research has found that adult-onset of these diseases is also possible, which adds another layer to the pathogenesis, identification, and treatment.
This webcast is a basic review of autoinflammatory syndromes that impact both children and adolescents.
- Summarize the pathophysiology underlying autoinflammatory syndromes.
- Describe signs and symptoms of common autoinflammatory syndromes.
- Critically appraise treatment options for autoinflammatory conditions.
This activity is directed to pediatricians, rheumatologists, internal medicine and family practice clinicians, and allied health professionals, including nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
The Cleveland Clinic Foundation Center for Continuing Education is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The Cleveland Clinic Foundation Center for Continuing Education designates this enduring material for a maximum of 0.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Participants claiming CME credit from this activity may submit the credit hours to the American Osteopathic Association for Category 2 credit.
