Why Attend:

Every year 12,000 – 18,000 people in the US are diagnosed with Nontuberculous Mycobacterial lung disease (NTM-LD).  NTM is a challenging disease to diagnose and treat, but early intervention can reduce disease progression and improve patient quality of life. ​Learners in this activity will have the opportunity to review diagnostic criteria, become up to date on current and emerging treatments, and learn the 2020 clinical practice guidelines for management of NTM. These tools will enable clinicians to create tailored treatment plans to help their patients achieve the best clinical outcome. 
 

Target Audience:

Pulmonologists and Infectious Disease Physicians, Primary Care/Family Medicine Physicians, Advanced Practice Nurses and Physician Assistants who treat patients with NTM. 
 

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this activity, the participant will be better able to:

  1. Apply best practices to the diagnosis of NTM‐LD
  2. Implement treatment based on the updated NTM guidelines and individual patient response and considerations
  3. Incorporate data on current and emerging therapies into treatment strategies for NTM‐LD
