Making Headway at Virtual Meetings with E-Poster Presentations
PlatformQ Health is excited to share an e-poster presentation that was accepted at the 2020 American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting. The poster, Differentiating GBS and CIDP in the Hospital Setting: Knowledge and Behavior Changes from Continuing Education can be viewed on the online meeting section at aan.com.
PlatformQ Health has chosen to share their accepted poster using their own proprietary Videobridge technology that allows presenters to speak on behalf of their research from the safety of their own homes. This is the same technology that was used to host and produce the CME program the poster addresses.
Poster authors, Wendy Turell, DrPH, PlatformQ Health Education, Lisa Buter, Executive Director of the GBS|CIDP Foundation International and Peter D. Donofrio, MD, of Vanderbilt University Medical Center are happy to share the poster’s insights virtually.
About the Poster
The CME activity Improving the Recognition of GBS and CIDP in the Hospital Setting that aired on NeuroSeriesLive was created because clinicians are challenged to differentiate chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) from other inflammatory neuropathies, such as Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS). CIDP and GBS can have similarly acute presentations, therefore accurate and timely diagnosis is an integral component of patient management. Poster authors sought to assess the influence of online continuing medical education (CME) on addressing clinician gaps on recognition and management of acute and chronic inflammatory disease.
Quantitative testing and surveying supported the positive impact of CME focused on improving awareness of GBS and CIDP in the hospital setting. Questions posed by learners indicated interest in patient characteristics, testing, first line treatment, and treatment in consideration of other comorbidities.
- The CME activity reached 693 learners with 68% of those being physicians and advances nurse practitioners
- 65% of learners reported the activity positively impacted patient experience/outcomes
- 80% of learners reported the activity positively impacted clinical practice
- 3 out of 4 knowledge and case/competence questions reflected statistically significant improvements on testing acute disease, treatment choice and referral pathway
