Individualizing Treatment for Chronic Rhinosinusitis with Nasal Polyps: Novel Options for Optimizing Outcomes

November 1, 2021 - November 1, 2022

Overview

Overview
Chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) is a chronic condition associated with multiple comorbidities and decreased quality of life. It is a condition characterized by inflammation of the sinonasal mucosa and clinical symptoms including congestion, rhinorrhea, hyposmia or anosmia, and pain or pressure in the face. Advances in understanding of the underlying pathology for CRSwNP has resulted in novel biologic therapies for its treatment.

This activity will provide specialists a multidisciplinary and rounded perspective for managing CRSwNP. Expert faculty consisting of ENT surgeons and an allergist/immunologist will review the latest clinical evidence for the treatment of CRSwNP and give their perspectives on the role of steroids, surgery, and biologics for the management of CRSwNP.

Target Audience

Physician specialists (allergists, immunologists, ENTs) and primary care providers who may treat patients with CRSwNP.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe the underlying pathophysiology of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps

  2. Identify the rationale for immunomodulation in the treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps

  3. Evaluate the mechanism of action, safety, and efficacy of biologics for the treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps

  4. Assess the role of steroids, surgery, and biologics and implement strategies to individualize treatment for patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps based on patient preferences and needs
