As We Age: Considering the Impact of Renal Impairment When Choosing an HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) Formulation

Lack of knowledge about PrEP remains a major barrier for optimal PrEP uptake. Furthermore, knowledge of PrEP and long-term risk mitigation related to renal impairment and use in individuals with medical comorbidities is necessary for improving widespread uptake. This is particularly important in aging individuals who are at risk for contracting HIV, as they may have medical comorbidities and ris...

Call to Action for Health Equity: Racial Disparities in the Care of Patients with Cardiometabolic Disease

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for adults in the US. However, patients from minority populations with cardiovascular disease have disproportionately poor health outcomes and are particularly vulnerable to health disparities. Racial inequities in health also result in higher risk-burden in minority groups for metabolic syndromes such as Type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes, which i...

Call to Action: Racial Disparities in Maternal Health

The United States ranks 61st in the world for maternal mortality, and African American/Black women are three times more likely to die due to poor maternal health, while Native American women are two times more likely than White women to die. Pregnancy-related mortality is 2.4 times higher than it was in 1987, however, approximately 65% of maternal deaths are preventable. Action steps to mitigate...

Data-Driven Decisions in Crohn's Disease: Positioning Patients for Success

While there is a tendency for clinicians to rely on one approach to treating Crohn's disease (CD), making confident data-driven treatment decisions in moderate-to-severe CD is imperative for durable, long-term remission. The traditional approach that has been based on progressive, step-wise treatment intensification with re-evaluation of response according to symptoms does not improve long-term ...

Differentiators When Choosing Novel Treatment Options for EDS

Reducing excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) is an important treatment goal for patients with narcolepsy or obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). In order to achieve reduced EDS, cataplexy and sleep paralysis/hypnagogic hallucinations must be controlled to improve disturbed nighttime sleep, which then improves fatigue and brain fog and reduces psychosocial dysfunction, therefore improving quality of lif...

Hitting Refresh on Excessive Daytime Sleepiness: Managing Patients with Narcolepsy and Idiopathic Hypersomnia

Central disorders of hypersomnia such as narcolepsy and idiopathic hypersomnia (IH) can be debilitating as both disorders are characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) which conveys a high degree of disability and burden. While there are safe, effective therapies that promote sustained reduction of symptoms in narcolepsy, there is often a failure to implement them in a timely manner. M...

Irregular Care: Racial Inequities in the Management of Cardiac Rhythm Disorders

Structural racism and classism leads to many of the social determinants of health (SDoH) that cause disparities in cardiovascular (CVD) care, such as unequal preventative care, heart arrythmia treatment, and research inclusion. Interpersonal racism, including unconscious bias, worsens disproportionate CVD care, and is also a stand-alone factor for this health inequity. Underrepresented minority ...

Matching Treatment Choice to the Pathophysiology of Sleep

The neurobiology of excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has no identified pathophysiology. This can make it difficult for clinicians to determine a target for therapeutic intervention; therefore, awareness of the mechanisms of action of current and novel therapies is vital when selecting an optimal treatment. In the second episode of this CME Outfitters podcast...

The Complete Response: Addressing Antidepressant Failure in Patients with Major Depressive Disorder

Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a profoundly debilitating, lifelong disorder. Many patients do not achieve remission with initial first-line antidepressant therapy, which is typically comprised of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). Subsequently, patients endure a high burden of treatment failure, though it is often unrecogn...

The Epidemic Within the Pandemic: Managing Complications in Populations with Obesity

Obesity is increasingly recognized as a multi-causal chronic disease that leads to structural and physiological abnormalities and functional impairments. Despite the growing prevalence and substantial burden of obesity in terms of health-related quality of life (HRQoL), healthcare utilization, and healthcare costs, obesity remains under-diagnosed and under-treated. The recent recognition that ob...
