This interactive episode designed for family physicians will explore seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR). SAR affects approximately 10% of the population and, depending on severity, may adversely affect work or school performance, sleep, cognitive function and overall quality of life. Several non-prescription and prescription therapies are available, ranging from nasal saline and oral antihistamines and nasal corticosteroids to combinations of corticosteroids and antihistamines. Choosing the most appropriate therapy that combines a satisfactory balance of cost, convenience, efficacy and tolerability can be challenging. However, our expert panel is here to help! Comments and questions from the audience are strongly encouraged and will be addressed throughout the presentation.
This episode is part of a live CME web series developed for Canadian family physicians, running from March 14 to May 30, 2017. Interested in the rest of the series? Visit www.imedicus.ca.
