Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, demyelinating, autoimmune disorder of the central nervous system (CNS) and is the leading cause of non-traumatic disability worldwide in young adults. As options for disease-modifying therapies (DMTs) increase, MS management can become challenging for providers trying to navigate the treatment landscape. By participating in this activity, you will test your current knowledge of MS and its diagnostic modalities, treatment, monitoring, and the importance of shared decision making. You will also have the opportunity to see how you fare against your peers with the interactive self-assessment.
Discover scenarios of patients with multiple sclerosis followed by assessment and management questions that explore how the patients can be managed optimally.
Clinical Exchanges®: Detangling Difficult Conversations about Multiple Sclerosis
This conversation-centered activity with educational pearls takes learners through a clinical exchange between patients with MS and their providers.
Diagnosing and Managing Multiple Sclerosis: A Personalized Approach
With rapidly changing guidelines and treatment indications, it can be difficult discerning when to start a disease-modifying therapy in the early spectrum of MS, such as clinically and radiologically isolated syndrome; how to discuss MS management in women of childbearing age; or how to use the new guidelines to confirm an MS diagnosis. In this supplement, these topics will be addressed along with recognizing treatment failure, knowing when to switch therapies, and how to incorporate patient preference in treatment-related decisions.
