Integrating Care in Spondyloarthritis: Applying Diagnostic Tools and Current Evidence Across Disciplines

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Spondyloarthritis (SpA) is one of the most common rheumatic diseases seen in clinical practice and consists of a group of several conditions that share clinical, radiologic, and genetic similarities. These include ankylosing spondylitis (AS), reactive arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and undifferentiated SpA.  Patients can be further classified into axial (axSpA), peripheral or extra-articular presentations. Delays in SpA diagnosis affect the prompt administration of effective treatments. This session will focus on the latest diagnostic tools; classification criteria; evidence-based, guideline-directed treatments; and long-term therapeutic monitoring in SpA. Strategies to address coordination across multiple disciplines to achieve individualized care of musculoskeletal and extra-articular manifestations of SpA will be explored. 

  • Utilize classification criteria, imaging techniques, and diagnostic tools to aid the timely and differential identification SpAs
  • Apply the latest clinical data on current and emerging therapies and treatment recommendations to personalized SpA management plans
  • Employ strategies to improve care coordination and multidisciplinary management of patients with musculoskeletal and extra-articular manifestations of SpA
