  • Overview

    The field of multiple sclerosis (MS) is evolving at a rapid pace from disease modifying therapies (DMTs) to diagnostic/monitoring tools to fundamental principles that shape how clinicians think about the disease. Though such advancements are welcome, they continue to raise new questions about how to optimize management for individual patients. In this program, real clinicians who treat MS pose their most pressing clinical questions to an expert panel. These specialists then provide their best answers through literature and their own clinical experience.

  • Target Audience

    This activity is intended for general neurologists, neurodegenerative disease specialists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the diagnosis and management of patients with MS.

  • Learning Objectives

    After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to: 

    • Apply evolving diagnostic considerations (e.g., oligoclonal bands, autoantibodies, rising biomarkers) in appropriate situations to optimize timely recognition of MS presentations
    • Evaluate key clinical and patient-specific factors that may influence DMT selection to optimally match each patient with particular therapeutic strategies
    • Discuss strategies for the identification and response to subacute disease changes to develop evidence-based management plans for patients
    • Utilize important long-term considerations in MS patient care to tailor clinical decisions commensurate with individual patient needs
  • Accreditation and Credit Designation Statements

    This enduring activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of Purdue University College of Pharmacy Office of Continuing Education and Professional Development and Efficient, LLC.
