There have been numerous advances in our understanding of the epidemiology and pathogenesis of spondyloarthritides within the last few years. The clinical practice of managing patients with these diseases has seen many advances, as well. Spondyloarthritis Research and Treatment Network and Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis have joined forces to develop a continuing medical education symposium to provide state-of-the-art education on the latest advances in the field. The first symposium was held in Portland, Oregon, on July 27, 2012, during the SPARTAN Annual Meeting.
