Introducing AGA Expert Exchange

The first subject of our new four-piece education program features biosimilars with Drs. Jami Kinnucan and Florian Rieder.

AGA Expert Exchange: Biosimilars in GI educates health care providers of the safety and efficacy of biosimilars and how to appropriately incorporate biosimilars into clinical practice.

The program kicked off with a Tweetorial, Basics in Biosimilars, covering:

  • What is a biosimilar?
  • How are biosimilars different than generics?
  • How are biosimilars made?
  • What is the FDA approval process of biosimilars?
  • Prior authorization
  • Efficacy in IBD
  • Biosimilar interchangeability

During the live Twitter chat, Biosimilars in GI, learners followed along using #AGAExpertX as our panel used cases to discuss topics like how to choose the right biosimilar for your patient and tips for shared decision-making discussions with the patient.

Program chairs Drs. Jami Kinnucan and Florian Rieder were joined by Drs. Anita Afzali, Jana G. Al Hashash, Shubha Bhat and Raymond K. Cross for this live event.

Participants can claim 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for the live Twitter chat via the pre-test and post-test.

The final piece of the program involves a new AGA University education module coming next month, including everything covered so far.
