Review adverse events that may be related to the use of various immunomodulatory agents commonly pre- scribed by rheumatologists, including corticosteroids, traditional disease modifying drugs (DMARDs) and new- er biologic agents, such as TNF inhibitors, B- and T-cell therapy, and other small molecules in order to better weigh benefits versus risks when selecting therapies for your patients2. Demonstrate increased knowledge regarding the pathogenesis of rheumatologic diseases, including rheu- matoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, osteoarthritis, scleroderma, and vasculitis, to increase differential diagnostic skills and implement appropriate management strategies for patients3. Define appropriate outcome measures for the optimal follow-up of patients with rheumatic diseases, both in clinical research trials as well as in clinical practice and apply these measures to clinical care in order to im- prove overall patient outcomes4. Appreciate the importance of the utilization of assessment tools when managing patients with rheumatic dis- eases in order to monitor disease activity and improve patient outcomes5. Recognize the role of imaging in clinical trials and clinical practice and utilize appropriate imaging modalities in order to make earlier diagnoses and optimal treatment decisions/management strategies for patients6. Cite the data around emerging therapies for rheumatic diseases and identify patients in your practice who may benefit from novel therapeutics7.
