  • Overview

    MS can be a tricky diagnosis and, left untreated, will run a debilitating course. That’s why this virtual simulation walks learners through the clinical aspects of achieving a diagnosis in light of new criteria, along with how they can use effective, personalized pharmacologic strategies to optimize disease control and adherence, recognize treatment failure, and manage MS in the peripartum setting. 

    The Postgraduate Institute for Medicine designates this enduring material for 0.5-0.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity

  • Target Audience

    The target audience for this activity are neurology providers including physicians, as well as NPs and PAs, who diagnose and manage patients with multiple sclerosis (MS).

  • Learning Objectives

    • Diagnose the spectrum of multiple sclerosis (MS), from radiologically isolated syndrome (RIS) to clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) to MS phenotypes using updated diagnostic criteria and the latest expert consensus guidelines.
    • Appropriately initiate and switch available disease-modifying therapies (DMTs) for high-risk CIS and MS on the basis of their efficacy, safety, and tolerability profiles, as well as treatment response, and anticipate the use of novel DMTs in late-phase development.
    • Use shared decision making when prescribing and switching DMTs to promote treatment adherence and positive patient outcomes.
    • Prescribe DMTs in women of child-bearing age on the basis of available DMT safety data, and adjust management according to anticipated changes in disease activity during and after pregnancy.
