The online formative assessment aims to provide clinicians with guidance from experts in the field, training to optimally assess the risks and benefits of MS therapies, and to enable the adoption of imaging and other instruments in their practice in order to better assess and manage patients with MS.
Each of the five modules within this activity has their own learning objective. Upon completion of each of the modules, participants will be able to:
•[Pathophysiology module]: Examine the basic tenets of MS immunology and recognize the scientific factors supporting the clinical management of MS
•[Imaging assessment module]: Adopt improved diagnostic and assessment approaches in MS management that utilize advances in imaging technology and other screening tools
•[Disease modification module]: Discuss the goals of MS treatment with patients; implement clinical algorithms for initial disease management and to improve outcomes
•[Patient-centered care module]: Formulate and monitor treatment strategies for MS based on patient characteristics and preferences
