Patient Perspectives Posters

Date:

Expires Nov 14, 2019

Program Information

CME: 3.25

The ACR is pleased to share digital posters from the 2018 Patient Perspectives Poster Program. The posters were created by 13 patient authors to share their perspectives with rheumatology professionals.

The Patient Perspectives Poster Program is designed to enhance the knowledge and competence of physicians and rheumatology health care providers by providing insight into adaptations patients and their healthcare team have adopted to better care for their health.

You will complete a brief pre-activity evaluation and then have the opportunity to explore the 13 posters at your own pace. This CME activity has been designated for 3.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM, based on the estimated time of 15 minutes to view and contemplate each poster. You are encouraged to think about how the complementary therapies or methods may be applicable to your patients and can help enhance patient care. After viewing the posters, you will complete a brief post-activity evaluation.
