Wednesday, October 4, 2023 at 2-3 pm ET Pricing: Free for Members and Non-Members
Please note that this session is not accredited for continuing pharmacy education credit.
Patients with lupus can present with diverse signs and symptoms affecting multiple organ systems. Lupus is a disease of progressive, and often irreversible, organ damage, which can lead to increased healthcare resource utilization and all-cause healthcare costs. Factors such as long-term use of corticosteroids and high disease activity may increase the risk of organ damage. Lupus nephritis, a serious manifestation of lupus, may lead to significant chronic kidney disease. Delays in treatment are another factor that may result in long-term organ damage. Modifying the natural course of the disease and minimizing corticosteroid exposure has been shown to prevent organ damage.
By the end of the program, you will be able to:
- Review the pathophysiology and clinical manifestations of lupus
- Discuss the clinical and economic impact of organ damage in the disease course of lupus
- Understand key components of disease modification and review strategies to prevent organ damage in lupus
