  5. An Essential Review of Advancements in the Management of MS for the Family Practitioner

    Effective communication between primary and specialty care clinicians can help improve the management of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). As primary care professionals, family practitioners must understand the pathophysiology of MS, the diagnostic process, and available treatment options in order to help maximize the care of patients with the disease.

  6. Best of MS Forum® IV

    Studies indicate genetic factors cause certain individuals to be more susceptible to the disease, but there is no evidence that MS is directly inherited. Management of patients with MS is highly complex, and the development of disease-modifying therapies (DMTs) has dramatically altered the treatment paradigm. However, until recently, guidance for DMT use has lagged behind the approval of new medications.

  7. Biomarkers, Treatments, and Comorbidities: Translating Data to Clinical Practice When Managing Patients with Multiple Sclerosis

    This video is a replay of a plenary session from the 9th Annual Chair Summit Master Class for Neuroscience Professional Development held in Miami, Florida on September 15 – 17, 2016.

    This case in the Multiple Sclerosis @Point of Care program reviews the real-life case scenario of a patient with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis that has been treated with two prior lines of therapy and now requires a switch in therapy due to suboptimal response. Guidance, strategies, and relevant efficacy and safety data will be reviewed. (CME expiration date: January 28, 2020)

  9. Case Study in Multiple Sclerosis: New Approach to Managing a Patient with Primary-Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    This case in the Multiple Sclerosis @Point of Care program illustrates the real-life clinical scenario of a patient with primary-progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS) and the recommended steps for diagnosis and initial treatment of this disease. Throughout this case, the recommended diagnostic and treatment strategies for patients with PPMS will be discussed.

  10. Considerations for Improving Multiple Sclerosis Treatment and Engagement in the African American Population

    This case-based enduring activity will cover the treatment and management of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). Intended Audience This activity is designed to meet the needs of neurologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, and other healthcare professionals treating patients with MS.

  11. Determining Active RRMS Using MRIs With Consideration of Aggressive Treatment Options And Clinical Trials

    The goal of this CME/CE activity is to provide state-of-the-science discussions of the MRI as a tool in measuring disease activity, disease progression, response to therapy, and practical therapeutic approaches that improve outcomes of patients with MS.

  12. Diagnosing and Treating MS in 2018: Live Webinar

    Changes in multiple sclerosis (MS) disease management continue to present challenges for MS care practitioners. To stay up to date in 2018 and beyond, neurologists, nurses, and others involved in the care of patients with MS need knowledge and guidance to adopt the latest strategies and insights for practice, including the "time is brain" or "brain health" approach.

  13. Diet Quality is Associated with Disability and Symptom Severity in MS

    Upon completion of the article by Fitzgerald et al, the participant should be able to: • Identify patient-level factors among patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) in this study that are associated with higher diet quality scores • Describe the association between dietary quality and MS-related disability observed in this study • List individual dietary components for which higher intake was associated with lower rates of disability in this study

  14. Differential Diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis

    This on-demand webinar is designed to help clinicians distinguish between the demyelinating disorders multiple sclerosis (MS) and neuromyelitis optica (NMO) and appropriately manage patients. Differential diagnosis has important clinical implications; while MS and NMO share overlapping symptoms, each responds to different treatment.

  15. ECTRIMS 2016: Optimally Managing Patients With Multiple Sclerosis Through Individualized Treatment Options

  16. Emerging Agents for Advanced MS

    Speakers: Edward J. Fox, MD, PhD, Clinical Associate Professor of Neurology, Lori Mayer, DNP, MSCN, Director, Medical Research, Jerry S. Wolinsky, MD, Emeritus Professor in Neurology. Jointly provided by Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers and PlatformQ Health Education, LLC.

  17. Epstein-Barr Virus, Cytomegalovirus, And Multiple Sclerosis Susceptibility: A Multiethnic Study

    This program is designed for physicians who are involved in providing patient care and who wish to advance their current knowledge of clinical medicine.

  18. Expert Debates in Multiple Sclerosis: Opposing Views in Management: Module 4. Pregnancy-Related Treatment Considerations in Multiple Sclerosis

    Learning Objectives After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to: • Review and understand the most current evidence related to treatment approaches for MS patients who become pregnant or plan to become pregnant

  19. Expert Perspectives on New Data in MS From the 2018 Annual Neurology Meeting

    The goal of this activity is to educate physicians on novel data from the latest clinical trials including key biomarkers, recognition, and assessment strategies in order to optimally manage patients with multiple sclerosis (MS).

  20. From Novice to Expert: A Series in Multiple Sclerosis Management

    Target Audience: Neurologists, internists, family physicians, primary care clinicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists involved in the care of patients with MS. This session has been approved for 3.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. The enduring material will be available from April 5, 2018 to April 5, 2019.

  21. Immune Reconstitution in MS: How Does This Impact Treatment Decisions?

    Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory, demyelinating, and neurodegenerative disorder of the central nervous system that represents the most common cause of nontraumatic neurological disability in young adults. Approximately 10% to 15% of patients with MS have primary progressive MS (PPMS), which, from onset, involves unremitting disease progression, without distinct relapses.

  28. Treatment of a Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis Patient Requiring a Therapy Switch

    Patients with relapsing multiple sclerosis can have breakthrough disease activity despite compliance with therapy, which requires consideration of a treatment switch. This case demonstrates the real-life clinical scenario of a woman with clinically active disease despite compliance with interferon beta therapy, with a discussion of alternative disease-modifying therapies that includes efficacy, safety, and the importance of patient preference. (CME expiration date: February 4, 2020)
