Utilizing an audience interactive format together with clinician-patient video vignettes and expert faculty presentations, dialogue and commentary, this case-based program will address: evaluation tools used to assess patient mobility status early in MS and throughout the disease progression; how to implement enhanced communication and education skills to empower patients and caregivers to engage in shared decision-making; and, nonpharmacological and pharmacological approaches to improve symptoms that limit patient mobility. This CME/CE activity was originally presented on Wednesday, May 29, 2013, in Orlando, Florida, in conjunction with the Fifth Cooperative Meeting of the Consortium of MS Centers (CMSC) and the Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in MS (ACTRIMS), and was adapted for release on July 31, 2013. Content was developed by faculty. The symposium was supported by an educational grant from Acorda Therapeutics, Inc.
