Keeping Up With Advances in MS: Cases in Diagnosis and Treatment, A Case-Based Roadmap for Improved Patient Outcomes in Multiple Sclerosis

CME: 1

Target Audience

This activity is intended for neurologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and allied healthcare professionals who diagnose and treat patients with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Program Overview

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, progressive, and disabling inflammatory neurologic condition that causes more disability than any other nontraumatic neurologic condition. Early diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of disease progression are fundamental to optimizing management of patients with MS. Here, we present an online learning module that covers key principles in all phases of management, with a focus on up-to-date and evidence-based principles of providing high-quality care.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Apply the diagnostic criteria and diagnostic algorithms to diagnose a patient with MS
  • Select a treatment plan for a patient with MS that is consistent with the state-of-the-art in MS care
  • Recognize a patient with a highly active MS presentation or a poor prognosis
  • Select a treatment based on its demonstrated clinical efficacy and a patient’s MS presentation
  • Recognize adverse event prevention, monitoring, and/or mitigation strategies
  • Apply the latest clinical data on approved DMTs in order to optimize treatment based on consensus recommendations
