  • Overview

    Farber disease is a lysosomal storage disorder characterized by a deficiency of the acid ceramidase enzyme. Abnormal accumulation of ceramide leads to macrophage-driven inflammation and multiple organ system pathologies, impacting bone, cartilage, the immune system, the central nervous system (CNS), lungs, and other organs. It is a progressive disease with profound morbidity and often premature death. Early recognition of core symptoms of Farber disease is necessary for accurate referral and treatment. This program provides an educational framework to shorten delays in diagnosis, and discusses new approaches that can ultimately impact a patient's long-term outcome.

  • Target Audience

    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of the interprofessional team, including rheumatologists, geneticists, neurologists, dermatologists, gastroenterologists, otolaryngologists, and other clinicians, involved in the management of patients with Farber disease.

  • Learning Objectives

    After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to:

    • Create awareness about the spectrum of ASAH1-related disorders
    • Gain an understanding of the common and uncommon signs and the hallmark triad of symptoms associated with Farber disease
    • Demonstrate the best practice approach to testing and diagnosing Farber disease
    • Provide insight into new clinical trial designs and for newly diagnosed or suspected Farber Disease patients
  • Accreditation and Credit Designation Statements

    In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by Global Learning Collaborative (GLC) and TotalCME, Inc. GLC is jointly accredited by the American Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
    This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive 1.25 Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credits for learning and change.
