Beyond the Pain: Best Practice Approach to Managing Gout

Join our expert presenters, Rheumatologist Dr. Adam Maundrell, and Dr Caroline West for a comprehensive webinar on gout, tailored for health professionals. This session will cover:

  • Aetiology: Delve into the causes, debunk diet-related misconceptions, and explore differential diagnoses like pseudogout and inflammatory arthritis.
  • Diagnosis: Learn about the role of joint aspiration and newer imaging modalities such as dual-energy CT (DECT).
  • Disease Progression: Discover the potential long-term complications of untreated gout, including degenerative arthritis, tophi and renal disease.
  • Management Approach: Master the treat to target approach, with slow dose up-titration of urate lowering therapy and flare prophylaxis. Gain insights into lifestyle measures and tips to promote adherence to urate-lowering therapy (ULT).

This webinar provides the latest evidence and best practice guidelines on gout diagnosis and management. Address common myths, and get practical advice on achieving target serum uric acid levels, reducing flares, and improving long-term outcomes.
