Cytokine signalling education forum and resource for rheumatologists, the Cytokine Signalling Forum (CSF), sails into 2018 with three Digital Health Awards. This award success underlines the CSF as a leader in the provision of medical education for practicing clinicians.

The Digital Health Awards are held biannually to recognise organisations providing high quality digital resources for consumers and professionals. Such resources are essential as clinicians are facing ever increasing time pressures, making it challenging for them to stay up-to-date with the latest research in their field.

“Our aim is to provide independent medical education to rheumatologists around the globe,” explained Martin Lennon, CEO of CESAS Medical, operator of the CSF. “We work to facilitate a greater understanding of cytokine signalling and IL-6 science and their implications for clinical practice in rheumatoid arthritis.

“These awards demonstrate the quality of our resources and their ability to help us achieve our aim,” he continued. “However, they also help us to raise our brand awareness so that all rheumatologists are aware of the CSF and find useful and insightful support in our resources.”

The CSF achieved a bronze award for its Continuing Medical Education (CME) course focusing on tofacitinib. The course provides participants with an understanding of tofacitinib’s mechanism of action and an in-depth examination of data from tofacitinib trials.

A similar course, this time focusing on baricitinib, was also commended with a bronze award. Participants can expect to complete the course with an understanding of baricitinib’s mechanism of action and clinical trial data.

The CSF also achieved a merit award for its “Highlights from EULAR 2017” review. This entry was for a report that summarised the presentations, posters and abstracts that were featured at the 2017 European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) conference.

The CSF provides resources such as recent research papers, presentation slides and online CME courses, helping rheumatologists to stay up-to-date on the application of cytokine signalling and interleukin-six science in rheumatoid arthritis.
