Axial spondyloarthritis/ankylosing spondylitis (axSpA/AS) imparts a significant burden on patients and caretakers. It negatively affects not only patient well-being and quality of life but also productivity during the prime of patients’ working lives. PCPs at the frontlines of care for patients with back pain are ideally positioned to identify individuals who may be suffering from axSpA/AS. Identification relies on a thorough understanding of the disease and its characteristics in addition to a high index of suspicion. This education will help PCPs to shorten the delay between symptom presentation and diagnosis and to improve rates of referral to rheumatology for diagnostic evaluation and confirmation.

Menopause Hormone Therapy: Where We Are Now

1.00 CME/MOC
1.00 AANP | 0.67 Pharmacology

Initial findings of the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) published in 2002 forever changed the way menopause hormone therapy has been viewed in the United States. After WHI, use of systemic menopause hormone therapy (MHT) decreased by as much as 80 percent among U.S. women. In the following decade and half, additional data derived from WHI coupled with new research findings resulted in confusion and misunderstandings for patients and clinicians alike on the appropriate use of MHT to manage menopause. This presentation will blend the findings of WHI with newer learnings and provide a practical approach to using MHT.
