    CME: Human papillomavirus: the rationale for prevention and optimizing vaccination strategies

    Activity Description / Statement of Need:

    In this online CME self-learning activity:

    The term human papillomavirus encompasses a family of DNA viruses that are sexually transmittable and may cause either benign or malignant lesions. They are the leading cause of cervical cancer (CC), with approximately 90% of CC cases attributable to HPV, as well as a major contributor to anogenital and head and neck cancers although many patients infected with HPV will never develop any related symptoms or disease. The prevalence of any form of genital HPV in non-elderly adults in the U.S. is 42.5%, with the slightly higher prevalence in men. While there are over 40 different HPV types that may infect the genital tract, two (types 16 and 18) are associated with 66% of CC cases and two (6 and 11) cause 90% of anogenital warts.

    This learning activity has been designed to bring HCPs’ knowledge of HPV vaccination and associated disease prevention up to date and to improve their competence and performance in identifying those who would benefit from vaccination.

    Target Audience:

    The following HCPs: primary care physicians and pediatricians; physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists who practice in the aforementioned areas of specialty; and any other HCPs with an interest in or who clinically encounter patients who would benefit from HPV vaccination.

    By the end of the session the participant will be able to:

    • Recall the epidemiology and complications of HPV
    • Describe the strains associated with the development of complications and disease and their related pathophysiologic processes
    • Discuss current U.S. HPV vaccination recommendations and apply them to patient cases
    • List current challenges to the prevention of HPV and high-risk groups

    Novel antimicrobials and infectious disease practice: Research updates from ID Week 2019

    Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a phenomenon fueled by the selection pressure leveled against microorganisms through the use and misuse of antimicrobials in clinical and agricultural settings as well as horizontal gene transfer between pathogens. The WHO predicts that there will be 50 million deaths caused by infectious diseases, and the U.N. General Assembly has designated the emergence of AMR the largest world health problem.

    The World Health Assembly has endorsed a Global Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance, including one step to address AMR: the sustainable investment in and development of new antimicrobials. Helping the clinician discern the role of these advances merits continuing healthcare professional education, as research suggests that HCPs are oftentimes unable to keep up with the steady publishing of literature and evolution of clinical practice. In so doing, the goal is to educate clinicians about the appropriate role of novel antibiotics so that they may more effectively address the challenge of AMR rather than contributing to it.

    Target Audience:

    HCPs specializing in: Infectious disease, critical care, and primary care; physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists who practice in the aforementioned areas of specialty; and any other healthcare professionals with an interest in or who treat patients with antimicrobials.

    By the end of the session the participant will be able to:

    • Identify key findings from the ID Week 2019 conference.
    • Apply the changes in CAP guidelines 2019 from 2007.
    • Identify novel drugs approved in 2019 and their potential.
    • Understand the implications of some current research and paradigm shifts.
    • Review HIV progress in the last year.
