Program Description:

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, progressive, inflammatory, and neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system that leads to significant disability. The push toward ever earlier diagnosis and treatment of MS and the rapid emergence of novel agents are causing considerable changes to the management of the disease. The decisions regarding when to initiate treatment and which agents to use, along with deliberations on long-term management, are all increasingly difficult, and adherence issues continue to negatively impact outcomes and add to the complexity of MS treatment.

Patient Engagement and DMD Selection Throughout the Course of MS will update clinicians on the latest advances in MS diagnosis and management, so that they can optimize outcomes for their patients with MS.

Agenda:

Registration: 6:30-7:00 am
CME/CE Program: 7:00-8:00 am
  1. Welcome and Introductions
  2. Improving the Rate of Early, Effective DMD Initiation in MS
  3. Comprehensive Care: Focusing on Adverse Event and Comorbidity Management
  4. Panel Discussion and Q&A Session

Target Audience:

This activity is intended for MS specialists, neurologists, nurses, and other health care professionals who manage patients with MS.

Educational Objectives:

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to demonstrate the ability to:

  • Use increased knowledge of the mechanisms of action and efficacy and safety profiles of current and emerging DMD therapies to develop evidence-based, patient-tailored therapies earlier in the course of MS
  • Integrate patient engagement strategies to activate patients and maximize DMD therapy adherence
  • Improve the recognition and management of common treatment-related side effects and comorbidities in MS
