  • Discuss factors that influence the selection of treatments for vasculitis disorders.

  • Outline how data on the efficacy and side effect profiles for different vasculitis therapies impact decisions for choice of agent, dose, and duration.

  • Describe the evidence base supporting diverse therapies for ANCA-associated vasculitis, including rituximab, conventional immunosuppressive agents, glucocorticoids, and plasma exchange.

  • Summarize evidence on COVID-19: vaccinations, cytokine storm, and effects on patients with autoimmune disease, and describe the implications for clinical practice.

  • Define the current status of targeted therapies, especially anti-TNF, anti-IL17, IL-23, and JAK inhibitors, in rheumatoid arthritis and spondyloarthritis.

  • Assess the clinical impact of recent evidence on treatment of patients with immune-mediated inflammatory diseases including vaccines, COVID-19, and targeted therapies.

  • Describe strategies for preventing infectious complications associated with immune-mediated inflammatory diseases.
