Accredited Breakfast Symposium

Co-developed by Eli Lilly and the CDA

The Target Remains Clear: “New Updates on IL-17 Inhibition in Psoriasis”

This symposium will expand upon last year’s award-winning CDA symposium, The Target is Clear, by providing participants with the most up-to-date efficacy and safety data on the use of IL-17 inhibitors for the treatment of psoriasis. Participants will also have the opportunity to reflect on how this novel therapeutic class may be changing the treatment expectations of both patients and physicians. Using a highly-interactive format, various topics relevant to clinical practice will be addressed including: long-term safety and efficacy, drug survival and longevity of response; challenges to the successful treatment of psoriasis with the newer biologics; meeting patient needs and improving quality of life; and optimizing outcomes in difficult-to-treat cases.

Dinner Symposium (New for 2017)

Co-developed by Novartis Pharmaceuticals Canada and the CDA

Differential diagnosis using a multi-disciplinary approach in psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, chronic idiopathic urticaria and auto-inflammatory disease

In 2067 all patients walking in to a doctor’s office might have a barcode which will offer the right diagnosis, with the right therapeutic approach and in turn offer on the spot the right treatment to describe the best chance of success.

However, in 2017 there is still a need for a differential diagnosis. Lengthy diagnosis and delayed treatment provides for more complexity for overall patient health.  This symposium will address how a multi-disciplinary team would work together to reduce the complexity for patient treatment and offer more efficient management of overall patient care.

The symposium will feature a panel of multi-disciplinary specialists who will provide insights on the patient journey, and management & treatment of psoriasis (PsO), psoriatic arthritis (PsA), chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU), and auto inflammatory disease (AI). The panel will focus on how a multi-disciplinary team can work together to improve patient care and accelerate the patient journey.
