Personalized Approach to Thyroid Disorders Part 1 and Part 2 Virtual Program
ATA Personalized Approach to Thyroid Disorder Webcast Welcome Remarks
The management of thyroid disorders is becoming increasingly complex as clinicians and patients strive to develop individualized diagnostic and therapeutic strategies designed to balance evidence-based medicine with patient-specific characteristics and rising health care costs, while attempting to achieve excellent clinical outcomes. Varying reference ranges according to age, race, and body mass index in pregnant and non-pregnant populations have caused physicians to re-evaluate traditional therapeutic approaches to include alternative algorithms that fit the specific population they treat. Similarly, the risk-adapted information provided by long-term studies of microcarcinomas and new developments in the molecular characterization of tumors have allowed patients to consider limited surgeries and even active surveillance strategies that deviate from the traditional recommendation of aggressive management of thyroid cancer. Through a two-part virtual series using lectures and case-based presentations, we will examine the most important, and often controversial, management issues faced by clinicians across the full spectrum of thyroid disorders.
As a result of COVID-19, this program has been transitioned from a live, in-person program that was scheduled for March 2020 into virtual learning. The Personalized Approach to Thyroid Disorders activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the Endocrine Society and the American Thyroid Association. The Endocrine Society is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
ATA would like to thank the Program Committee co-chaired by Laura Boucai, MD and Francesco Celi, MD for their efforts to create this program.
