This educational activity is directed toward neurologists. Neuromuscular specialists, specialty nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and other health care practitioners involved in the care of patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) are also invited to participate.
The neurodegeneration characteristic of ALS progressively affects a patient’s body regions, frequently limiting survival to 2 to 5 years after disease onset. The aims of management are to extend quality of life and slow disease progression. Patients with ALS have had limited disease-modifying treatment options, but recent availability of new therapies and continuing development of investigational agents is leading to exciting advances in ALS care.
This online educational activity is designed to provide expert interpretation of new and emerging data on the treatment of ALS with a forward-looking perspective on how new and novel agents might impact clinical practice. The essentials of supportive care and of current and investigational therapies will be presented in a multimedia format, including a series of audio interviews with an expert thought leader integrated into text-based elements.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
- Assess clinical trial data as well as the therapeutic rationale of new and emergent agents for the management of ALS
- Formulate personalized treatment plans for patients with ALS that take into account formulation options
