Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease that affects both children and adults, disproportionately affecting women of childbearing age. Additionally, profound racial/ethnic and socioeconomic health disparities have been shown to adversely impact lupus outcomes for people of color. Systemic lupus erythematosus can cause widespread inflammation and tissue damage affecting multiple organ systems, including the skin, joints, kidneys, and brain. With the recent influx of multiple new options for treating SLE and lupus nephritis, ongoing education is essential to keep clinicians apprised of the latest evidence and treatment recommendations. Awareness regarding health disparities is also critical for improving care and patient outcomes. In this CME activity, participants will play GameOn!, an interactive quiz of knowledge and confidence, in which they answer questions about lupus diagnosis, assessment, treatment, and health disparities. Faculty will offer key guidance on early diagnosis, management approaches, and strategies for mitigating health disparities in SLE and lupus nephritis.
