This educational activity is designed for physicians and other clinicians who manage and treat patients with MS. Bruce Cohen, MD, Chair. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
•Examine the basic tenets of MS immunology and recognize the scientific factors supporting the clinical management of MS.
•Adopt improved diagnostic and assessment approaches in MS management that utilize advances in imaging technology and other screening tools.
•Discuss the goals of MS treatment with patients to implement clinical algorithms for initial disease management and improve outcomes.
•Formulate and monitor treatment strategies for MS based on patient characteristics and preferences.
•Evaluate the safety and efficacy of pharmacologic treatment approaches for disease modification and symptom management. This activity utilizes a digital platform that enables learners to explore three patient profiles (case-based learning) that present some of the challenges clinicians may encounter when treating patients with MS. It has been determined that this online activity can be completed in 45 minutes. 0.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit
