Estimated time for completion of this activity:
This CME/CE activity is designed for hepatologists, gastroenterologists, infectious disease specialists, primary care providers, nurses, physician assistants, and pharmacists who are involved involved in the screening and treatment of patients with or at risk for primary biliary cholangitis (PBC), primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), and dysbiosis of the gut/biliary microbiota.
The goal of this activity is to examine and formulate strategies for the diagnosis, treatment, and management of PBC and PSC that result in improved patient outcomes and the role of the microbiome in cholestatic liver disease.
- Describe PBC and PSC, assess the importance of early diagnosis of each and recent advances in our understanding of pathophysiologic mechanisms that may serve as targets for therapy.
- Analyze criteria for assessing treatment response in both PBC and PSC, and formulate therapeutic treatment interventions to improve patient outcomes.
- Assess dysbiosis of the gut/biliary microbiota, analyze the importance of early diagnosis, and evaluate what pathophysiologic mechanisms may serve as targets for therapy.
