HANDOUTS
Paper copies of handouts will be provided in each room as well as electronically on this website. Copies of PowerPoint slides are not provided. To access the handouts electronically, participants should ensure they are logged in before accessing this event. Click the + symbol beside the session, which will expand the module. A clickable text link to download the handout as a PDF file will be present.

 

ATTENDANCE
All live participants will be required to sign in on the paper sheets, located within each room. Paper sign-in sheets will be reconciled against completed evaluations. Attendance for the virtual sessions will be captured once a participant joins the session and will be reconciled with completed evaluations. Any sessions that you did not attend will be removed from your account within two weeks following the seminars.

 

CPE CREDIT
Immediately following the presentation, registered participants will receive an email with a link to the evaluation. Within one week after attending the session, participants must complete this online evaluation. The CPE Administrator will submit each participant’s NABP number and date of birth combination to CPE Monitor for continuing education credit, no later than two weeks after the live presentation. Only ONE session may be claimed for each time block. If multiple concurrent sessions are claimed, or if a session is claimed that is not reflected on the paper sign or the attendance roster within Microsoft Teams Meeting, the offending participant forfeits CE credit.
 
It is recommended that participants log on and review the information under "My Account" prior to completing evaluations. The NABP ePID and date of birth fields must be accurate for credit reporting to occur. Participants are encouraged to check their NABP eProfiles for receipt of credit within two weeks of submitting their evaluation(s). If a participant notices an error in credit on their NABP e-profile, they are encouraged to contact Nicole Fields at Nicole.Fields@uhsp.edu soon as possible. To best comply with ACPE's CE credit reporting policy, the University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy is unable, for any reason, to award or correct CE credit if more than 60 days have passed from the event.
 
After one week, evaluations will close and CPE credit may no longer be claimed. If the deadline is missed or if a CE credit correction must be issued, an additional fee may be incurred for late submission - please see our policy, located on the FAQ page for details. Evaluations close October 21, 2020 at 11:59 PM (CDT).

 
SPECIAL ACCOMMODATIONS
Attendees of all abilities are welcome to participate. If you require reasonable accommodations, please notify Nicole Fields via email at Nicole.Fields@uhsp.edu in advance so that she may secure resources as soon as possible. Every effort will be made to make accommodations where necessary.

This session will review the pathophysiology of antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) in solid organ transplantation and provide further insight into the understanding of graft injury and impact on post-transplant outcomes. Current mainstays of therapy for AMR will be reviewed, along with the limitations that surround existing evidence and challenges to the development of new therapies for AMR.  A focus on emerging and experimental therapies and their potential role in managing resistant or recurrent AMR will be included.

Objectives

  • Identify therapeutic targets of existing and novel therapies for the treatment of antibody-mediated rejection.
  • Describe current mainstays of therapy for the management of antibody-mediated rejection in solid organ transplant.

First, in vitro data regarding combination antimicrobial therapies for staphylococcus infections will be discussed in order to help describe mechanisms of synergy. Previous clinical trials will then be briefly reviewed to establish the field of evidence prior to 2020. Following this baseline information, the results of the CAMERA2 and DASH trials will be examined in depth to characterize the current data available. Lastly, situations where combination therapy for staphylcoccal bacteremias would be best utilized will be discussed.

Objectives

  • Describe antimicrobial mechanisms of synergy for treatment of Staphylococcus aureus infections.
  • Summarize the current data behind combination therapy for Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia.
  • Identify scenarios where combination therapy is most appropriate for Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia.

This seminar will provide an overview of the challenges of providing both safe and adequate analgesia and sedation to patients in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).  Premature neonates have an immature mechanisms to modulate pain. Inadequate analgesia in premature neonates has been associated with detrimental neurodevelopmental outcomes. However, several medications commonly used for analgesia and sedation may also contribute to adverse short- and long-term neurological outcomes, specifically in premature neonates. Neonates have altered medication metabolism and drug clearance due to immature organ function, which can be further altered in premature infants. Special consideration should be given for appropriate dosing strategies given the altered pharmacokinetics in neonates to optimize analgesia and sedation while minimizing adverse events. The aim of this seminar is to evaluate the literature regarding the use of common analgesics and sedatives in preterm and term neonates and to provide a summary of appropriate agents and dosing regimens in this patient population.

Heart rate is recognized as an important and independent predictor of orthotopic heart transplant patient outcomes. An elevated heart rate after heart transplantation results from the denervation of the vagus nerve, yet there is no clear consensus or definition of a normal heart rate range after  transplant. Additionally, data regarding the implications of an elevated heart rate after transplant are limited. This presentation will review the available data regarding changes in heart rate after transplant and complications associated with an elevated heart rate. Furthermore, the goal of this this seminar is to review the therapeutic treatment options including beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, and the novel hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated (HCN) channel inhibitor, ivabradine to determine appropriate management of sinus tachycardia post heart transplant.

Objectives

  • Identify the mechanism of action of ivabradine.
  • Identify potential associations of an elevated heart rate and patient outcomes.

Management of Sleep Disturbances in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder will discuss data used to support the guideline recommendations for treatment of nightmares in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the data that changed these recommendations, and the advancements in research that has occurred since their release in 2017 and 2018. The goal of this presentation is to provide information on new evidence for the treatment of nightmares in PTSD patients – an area in clinical practice that remains unclear.

In September of 2019, oral semaglutide received an FDA approval as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. This is the first FDA-approved oral option in the GLP-1 receptor agonist class. Oral semaglutide has the potential to fill a gap in therapy for patients that may receive benefit from a GLP-1 receptor agonist but have barriers to initiating an injectable medication. This seminar presentation will explore the results of the PIONEER trials and provide further guidance on the use of oral semaglutide in the context of other available anti-diabetic agents.

Objectives

  • Compare the efficacy of oral semaglutide to other diabetic agents for A1c lowering.
  • Describe the effect of oral semaglutide on weight.
