In this session we will review how prescribers and pharmacists are integrating biosimilars into their practices and how biosimilars are being received by patients. We will also review awareness and education efforts that have been implemented, focusing on what has worked and what has not worked as expected.
Learning Objective : At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
  • Identify programs implemented to educate healthcare professionals and their patients so that biosimilars are accepted and used
  • Understand why some educational programs have been more successful than others
  • Gain an appreciation for aspects of biosimilarity that are now well accepted as well as areas of residual concern
