New gene therapy CME program launched

The World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) is proud to announce the launch of Clinical Advances in Gene Therapy for Hemophilia, an online continuing medical education (CME) program developed in collaboration with the National Hemophilia Foundation, the European Haemophilia Consortium and Medscape Education. The program is designed for clinicians but available to everyone.

The program of five activities will cover important information on the science behind gene therapy for hemophilia, the latest safety and efficacy data from clinical trials and the potential role for gene therapy in addressing the challenges of current treatment options. Clinicians can qualify for CME credits for each activity while all learners can obtain a completion certificate, or simply use the program to enhance their knowledge of gene therapy in hemophilia.

The first two activities are now live!

Test Your Knowledge of Gene Therapy for Hemophilia
John Pasi, MB ChB, PhD, FRCP, FRCPath, FRCPCH
0.25 CME/ABIM MOC. Released May 3, 2018 and valid for credit through May 3, 2019.

Test Your Knowledge of Gene Therapy in Hemophilia is an educational self-assessment survey. In Activity #1, the questions allow learners to see how much they already know about gene therapy in hemophilia and the answers explain the essential information required for a fuller understanding.

Gene Therapy: Past, Present, and Future
Steven Pipe, MD; David Lillicrap, MD; Ulrike M. Reiss, MD
0.50 CME/ABIM MOC. Released June, 25, 2018 and valid for credit through June 25, 2019.

Gene Therapy: Past, Present, and Future is an expert round table discussion that takes learners on a journey through the evolution of gene therapy in hemophilia, including its development, ongoing research, and current and future uses. A transcript of the discussion in Activity #2 makes it easy for all learners to follow along, and presentation slides containing key messages and pivotal gene therapy clinical trial data enhance the learning experience.

Other activities coming soon in this curriculum include expert videos on the science behind gene therapy in hemophilia and the challenges of current therapies, as well as a clinical article describing recent advances in hemophilia gene therapy trials. Check back often as the three remaining activities will go live over the coming months!
