In this monograph, rheumatologists and other clinicians will review recent pathophysiologic insights into gout, improved imaging techniques, as well as novel therapeutic options available to benefit their management of gout patients today.
This activity is designed for rheumatologists, physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, and pharmacists who have a special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of gout and hyperuricemia.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be better able to:
- Describe recent advances in understanding the pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying hyperuricemia and the inflammation of an acute gout attack.
- Apply recommended guidelines for the diagnosis of gout to their practice and understand how ultrasound and other imaging techniques might aid in diagnosing gout or monitoring its progression.
