  3. Discuss if prednisone and prednisolone undergo concentration-dependent pharmacokinetics during pregnancy;
  4. Interpret that infant exposure to prednisone and prednisolone via breast milk is minimal.

To receive full credit, learners must review the article, attend the complete live webinar or view the complete on-demand webinar; take a post-course assessment, complete an evaluation and claim a certificate.
