Overview

This CME pre-conference is designed to introduce neurologists to “sub-specialty” status for the care of patients with multiple sclerosis. Over the last several years, the scientific advances on pathophysiology and therapeutic options in the field of multiple sclerosis have exponentially progressed to a level of complexity, such that many standard educational formats have become limited. This CME activity is designed to fill the professional gaps of community neurologists to make their skills more aligned with those neurologists working at a multiple sclerosis center.

Target Audience

Neurologists, and other clinicians responsible for the care of patients with multiple sclerosis.

Learning Objectives

Review strategies for early and accurate diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, including current imaging techniques and biomarkers.

Examine the role of genetics and modifiable risk factors associated with a higher likelihood of acquiring multiple sclerosis.

Acquire a current understanding of the immunopathology of multiple sclerosis, including T-cells, B-cells, and antibodies.

Summarize the current clinical trial data for pharmacotherapeutics for the management of patients with multiple sclerosis.

Develop evidence-based, personalized treatment plans to optimize outcomes for patients with multiple sclerosis.

Analyze strategies to utilize risk mitigation techniques to minimize adverse events for MS patients.

Incorporate appropriate symptom management, including lifestyle and mobility modification/improvements, and comorbidities, into patient care within multiple sclerosis.

­

Integrate both patient education and comprehensive care team communication improvements into practice, in order to increase patient adherence to therapy.

The Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ACTRIMS) announces its first stand-alone meeting:
ACTRIMS Forum 2016

ACTRIMS Forum 2016 will be held on February 18-20, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. The conference theme is “Progressive MS: Bench to Bedside and Back.” Learn about cutting edge discoveries in the pathogenesis and management of progressive MS from world renowned experts in the field. Discuss advances in the development of serological and imaging markers of MS disease progression. Hear about ongoing clinical trials of neuroprotective, neuroregenerative and immunomodulatory agents in progressive MS.  The conference will be of value to researchers, clinicians, residents, students, postdoctoral fellows and patient advocates who have an interest in the pathogenesis, clinical management and treatment of progressive MS.
