Optimal Management of Nontuberculous Mycobacterial Lung Disease: A Clinical Olympics Proceedings

Program Overview

RMEI proposes a gamified, team-oriented symposium at the 2022 Infectious Disease Society of America (ID Week) Annual Meeting in collaboration with the Array technology platform team, to drive learner engagement and retention. The Clinical Olympics theme will frame the event as a tongue-in-cheek competition for the “Healthiest Country” by responding to polling questions via iPads after choosing their country/team and logging on. Teams will compete in a series of “events” where learners from each team answer questions related to diagnosis and management of NTM-LD, including safety and efficacy of the various agents used for treatment, practical implementation of treatments, along with appropriate monitoring of treatment response.
