Event Overview
Welcome message:

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a multifaceted neurological disorder whose management requires a multidisciplinary team of highly specialized health professionals. The availability of new and sophisticated diagnostic tools and the discovery of new treatments has made daily clinical practice even more challenging for physicians involved in MS patient management. Tailoring the treatment to individual patient needs and establishing the right time to start therapy or to switch from traditional first-line disease-modifying therapies to other first- or second-line therapies are the biggest issues. The goal of this learning activity is to update participants about MS pathogenesis and diagnostic criteria and to provide a comprehensive overview of past and future disease-modifying therapies. In addition, the learner will be taught about strategies for symptomatic and rehabilitative care, which have proven to be a necessity in overall MS management. This will enable emerging knowledge to be integrated with clinical practice.

Learning objectives

After attending this live educational course, the participants will be able to:

Analyze genetic and environmental factors in the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis to facilitate effective patient and family education

 Integrate clinical, neurophysiological, and MRI findings into the accurate diagnosis of multiple sclerosis and the exclusion of MS mimickers

Incorporate information regarding the risks and benefits of currently available drugs for multiple sclerosis into treatment decisions

Include symptomatic management of multiple sclerosis into the treatment paradigm of comprehensive management throughout the spectrum of the disease

 Recognize the contribution of rehabilitation services to overall wellness in MS and include when appropriate

Target audience

This live educational course is appropriate for neurologists who specialize in MS as well as other clinicians with a special interest or focus on this disease.
