The 2022 Digital Learning Journey on Thyroid Disorders

30 April 2022

Thyroid disorders is the umbrella term for several pathological conditions with high prevalence worldwide, such as hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, as well as both benign and malignant thyroid nodules. Overall, thyroid disorders are a major cause of global morbidity and decreased quality of life, and are of particular relevance for patients with critical comorbidities, such as patients with cardiac arrythmias or hospital in-patients. For these patients, diagnosing or controlling the co-morbid thyroid disorder can have a major impact on the health and well-being of the patient. Critical to the issue of holistic patient care is awareness that several drugs used to treat common comorbidities, such as amiodarone, may increase the risk of thyroid dysfunction. This digital learning journey has been designed to provide participants with treatment strategies supported by evidence-based medicine to aid diagnosis and management of common thyroid disorders often presenting as clinical dilemmas.
