PROVIDER STATEMENT

This activity is provided by Integrity Continuing Education, Inc.

DISCLOSURE OF COMMERCIAL SUPPORT

This activity is supported by an independent medical education grant from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Sanofi.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The emergence of biologics for chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) has provided clinicians with a new option in the management of patients with CRSwNP. Identifying the role of these agents, how they fit in with surgery and standard treatments, and in which patient populations these therapies might be preferred are some of the many issues that challenge clinicians in patient management. This activity will review the most recent recommendations for treatment selection, current evidence for the use of biologics in practice, and key updates to support patient care delivery. Clinical evidence will be supported by interactive patient case review, interactive polling, and expert panel discussion. Follow the unrehearsed decision-making by faculty members and see if you sniff out the same conclusions!
