Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this educational activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Review the evidence in support of MH as a primary goal of CD treatment 
  • Discuss strategies to define, monitor, and achieve MH in patients with moderate-to-severe CD
  • Evaluate the clinical trial data and RWE surrounding the impact of available biologics on MH induction and maintenance for optimal therapeutic positioning
Activity Overview

To encourage clinician participation, maximize learner and speaker interaction, and assess the
assimilation of knowledge for application to competence and performance by participants, the satellite
symposium will incorporate an interactive Audience Response System (ARS) for real-time audience
participation and feedback. Utilizing the ARS, the session will include pre- and post-activity assessment
questions, embed in-presentation polling questions, capture audience questions in real time, include
case studies, and allow ample time for discussion and audience Q&A to ensure a balance of expertdriven
and learner-directed education. All participant feedback will be captured and downloaded as part
of the outcomes assessment.

Financial Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest


Imedex use a multifaceted approach to identify and secure faculty for all CME/CE initiatives, including a
review of current literature and discussions with current and previous faculty contributors and
educational partners. The objective is to ensure that all faculty contributors have an appropriate level of
expertise in the therapeutic area and with the target audience, an understanding of adult-learning
principles, and that all potential conflicts of interest are disclosed and resolved.
Imedex is dedicated to ensuring balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all of its
CME/CE activities. Imedex requires all potential faculty members and program planners, in advance, to
disclose financial relationships with relevant commercial interests. Imedex uses that information to
determine whether prospective contributors have potential conflicts of interest. If significant
relationships are disclosed, Imedex will assess how those potential conflicts of interest may affect
CME/CE content. Imedex requires faculty members to validate all treatment recommendations by
stating the level of evidence and requires all content to be reviewed by an independent clinical reviewer
before dissemination. If Imedex and the reviewer agree that data are biased, do not represent accepted
standards of US medical practice, and/or do not conform to research principles accepted by the
scientific community, contributors must exclude those data or not be permitted to present. Imedex is
committed to resolving potential conflicts of interest, although if contributors have significant
relationships that cannot be reconciled, Imedex reserves the right to prohibit participation. All Imedex
activities are developed in accordance with the ACCME “Essentials and Standards for Commercial
Support,” as well as ACPE, ACCN, PhRMA, FDA, AMA, OIG, and other relevant regulatory guidelines.
