This activity is supported by an educational grant from GlaxoSmithKline.

Target Audience

The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of ear, nose, and throat (ENT), allergy/clinical immunology, and pulmonology clinicians involved in the treatment of patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP).

Statement of Need/Program Overview

The availability of effective, targeted therapies for CRSwNP is expanding and best practices for their use as well as placement within treatment algorithms is constantly evolving. This CME Circuit Training™ activity has been designed to flex your knowledge and build your clinical management muscles in CRSwNP. Utilizing a unique multimedia platform that consists of 4, 15-minute circuits, faculty will guide you through a series of workouts that will help strengthen your expertise and improve your care of patients with severe or uncontrolled CRSwNP.

Educational Objectives

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Describe clinically relevant elements of CRSwNP pathophysiology, focusing on implications for disease classification, comorbidity burdens, and treatment targets
  • Evaluate patients with CRSwNP for disease phenotypes, symptom control, and treatment responses
  • Discuss the mechanisms of action, clinical trial data, and prescribing parameters for biologic treatment options in CRSwNP
  • Tailor multimodal treatment regimens for patients with CRSwNP that reflect symptom burden, endotypes, comorbidities, and shared clinical decision-making
