Thyroid Eye Disease

Recorded On: 12/18/2019

Commercial Support: Horizon


Thyroid Eye Disease (TED) is a serious, progressive autoimmune disease with a limited window for pharmacologic treatment, during the active disease. During this window, the disease may respond to pharmacologic intervention. With the potential of new infusion delivered treatment options on the horizon, it will be incumbent upon nurses and other healthcare providers to understand the disease state, as well as the treatment modalities. INS is of the belief that this need is best met and served through the development and delivery of nursing education programs.

Learning Outcome:
At the conclusion of this webinar, learners will have an increased understanding of thyroid eye disease and the treatment options available for patients with this condition.
