In the United States, approximately 250,000 people have been diagnosed with a primary immunodeficiency (PI) disorder, and these patients have increased vulnerability to severe infections as well as lifelong impairment. Despite the severity of this disorder, however, there are significant disparities in diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes for patients diagnosed with PI who are from racial and ethnic underserved populations, as well as those of lower socioeconomic status.
This CME Outfitters Webcast will focus on addressing these persistent health disparities. Expert faculty will engage the audience in the development of improved skills in identifying the signs and symptoms of PI to reduce diagnostic delays, emphasize the importance of implementing consistent, guideline-directed treatment plans for all patients, and advise on the importance of effective patient-clinician communication and education.
At the end of this CME/CE activity, participants should be able to:
