CME Provider: American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology
Description of CME Course
In 2021, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI), the AXDEV Group, and the Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) conducted a survey of over 300 PIDD patients. The purpose of this survey was to identify, from a patient perspective, the knowledge and practice gaps that have existed among the healthcare providers (HCPs) they have seen regarding PIDD. The findings indicated a need to address HCPs’ skills and confidence in recognizing signs and symptoms of PIDD, the use and interpretation of diagnostic tests, how to engage patients in essential health discussions, and maintaining optimal patient care via telehealth.
To address these gaps in knowledge and practice, the AAAAI has developed this program, which contains three impactful online modules that cover symptoms, telehealth, and diagnosis. Each module includes information about best practices for communicating with patients and links to patient and practitioner resources. Learners will complete a pre-test before completing the modules and an assessment within each of the three modules. CME credit is available for each module in the program.
