Course – CloudTable:
Improving Long-Term Outcomes in Exudative Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Course Description “CloudTable: Improving Long-Term Outcomes in Exudative Age-Related Macular Degeneration”

This program is an audio archive of an expert virtual roundtable on improving long-term outcomes in exudative age-related macular degeneration.

As a follow-up to a national expert summit, the Angiogenesis Foundation convened an expert roundtable of leading clinicians to provide an analysis and further reflections on the summit findings. The clinicians were given a synopsis of the expert summit and then asked to provide their insights and contributions on the following topics:

1. Real-world versus clinical trial settings and impact on long-term patient outcomes for anti-VEGF treatments for wet AMD.

2. Variations in care, especially undertreatment, as a barrier to optimal long-term vision outcomes.

3. Actions to improve long-term patient outcomes, including future research using real-world evidence (RWE).

As a supplement to the audio archive, a video animation and an in-depth white paper summarize the expert findings.

Objectives

Upon completion of this program, clinicians will be able to:

  • Understand real-world versus clinical trial settings and impact on long-term patient outcomes for anti-VEGF treatments for wet AMD.
  • Discuss variations in care, especially undertreatment, as a barrier to optimal long-term vision outcomes.
  • Identify key actions to improve long-term patient outcomes, including future research using real-world evidence (RWE).

Target Audience

Retina specialists, ophthalmologists, clinicians, nurses, health workers, patient advocates, caregivers, and low-vision services providers.
