    Sunday, March 21, 2021
    Program: 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM EDT 

    Join us for a discussion of:

    • Strategies to improve patient recognition and diagnosis based on the pathophysiology and clinical symptomology of acromegaly
    • Common comorbidities associated with acromegaly and the burden on patient quality of life despite endocrine control
    • Recent clinical evidence regarding the safety and efficacy of currently approved and emerging treatment options for the management of patients with acromegaly
    • The importance of continued monitoring of patients with acromegaly and improved provider-patient communication to ensure symptom control and minimizing the treatment burden and QoL burden

    This course is a virtual live CME-certified Ancillary Symposium developed in collaboration with our partner - Vindico Medical Education, LLC, to be presented at ENDO 2021. This educational activity is supported by an independent medical educational grant from Chiasma, Inc.

    DISCLAIMERS

    USE OF PROFESSIONAL JUDGMENT:

    The educational content in this activity relates to basic principles of diagnosis and therapy and does not substitute for individual patient assessment based on the health care provider’s examination of the patient and consideration of laboratory data and other factors unique to the patient. Standards in medicine change as new data become available.

    DRUGS AND DOSAGES:

    When prescribing medications, the physician is advised to check the product information sheet accompanying each drug to verify conditions of use and to identify any changes in drug dosage schedule or contraindications.

    POLICY ON UNLABELED/OFF-LABEL USE

    The Endocrine Society has determined that disclosure of unlabeled/off-label or investigational use of commercial product(s) is informative for audiences and therefore requires this information to be disclosed to the learners at the beginning of the presentation. Uses of specific therapeutic agents, devices, and other products discussed in this educational activity may not be the same as those indicated in product labeling approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The Endocrine Society requires that any discussions of such “off-label” use be based on scientific research that conforms to generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection, and data analysis. Before recommending or prescribing any therapeutic agent or device, learners should review the complete prescribing information, including indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, and adverse events.

    PRIVACY AND CONFIDENTIALITY STATEMENT

    The Endocrine Society will record learner’s personal information as provided on CME evaluations to allow for issuance and tracking of CME certificates. The Endocrine Society may also track aggregate responses to questions in activities and evaluations and use these data to inform the ongoing evaluation and improvement of its CME program. No individual performance data or any other personal information collected from evaluations will be shared with third parties.
