This is an online, self online CME self-learning program for therapeutic updates, best practices, and emerging therapies for Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP). Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a chronic, acquired, autoimmune disorder affecting the peripheral nervous system.

By the end of the session the participant will be able to:

  • Describe the pathophysiology of CIDP such that it might inform treatment mechanisms
  • Identify the currently available and emerging pharmacotherapeutic treatments for management of CIDP and apply them to patient cases using evidence-based medicine
  • Modify an existing treatment plan for a specific patient with CIDP to optimize safety and efficacy following non-response to therapy
  • Describe non-pharmacological options to manage CIDP
