Target Audience and Goal Statement

The intended audience for this activity is retina specialists, retina fellows, ophthalmology residents, and other health care professionals involved in the management of patients with retinal disease.

Therapeutic and surgical algorithms for the management and treatment of patients with retinal diseases continue to evolve, while management protocols are being further refined in light of real-world outcomes. Recognition and understanding of these evidence-based treatment advances are imperative to enhance treatment outcomes and patient satisfaction, yet staying up to date with the latest evidence from clinical trials as well as emerging diagnostic and treatment options can be challenging. To address these ongoing challenges, this CME podcast series will discuss evidence-based approaches for the diagnosis, treatment, and management of patients with retinal diseases. Within this series, an expert panel of retina specialists will address diagnostic modalities that can improve the early detection, treatment, and monitoring of retinal disorders; assess evidence-based medicine, best practices, and treatment algorithms that can improve the medical management of retinal diseases; evaluate evidence-based practices, procedures, and technology that can improve the surgical management of retinal disorders; as well as outline key patient-focused and practice-management strategies that can improve overall patient care and outcomes.

Upon successful completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  1. Assess diagnostic modalities that can improve the early detection of retinal diseases.
  2. Describe advances in imaging that can improve the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of retinal disorders.
  3. Examine evidence-based medicine, best practices, and treatment algorithms that can improve the medical management of retinal diseases.
  4. Recognize how data from key clinical trials can be applied to practice and improve the treatment of retinal vascular disorders.
  5. Evaluate new evidence regarding the use of multimodal therapeutic regimens in the treatment of retinal vascular disorders.
  6. Examine evidence-based practices, procedures, and technology that improve the surgical management of retinal disorders.
  7. Summarize key patient-focused, as well as practice management processes and procedures that can improve overall care and outcomes.
