Program Overview 

This CME/CE symposium during the Virtual ACTRIMS Forum 2021, led by Fred D. Lublin, MD, will review current disparities for the management of patients across the entire spectrum of disease with multiple sclerosis (MS). Dr. Lublin and the expert faculty will discuss the immune-science relationship between COVID-19 infections and therapeutic options in MS. Additionally, the clinical applications of the latest therapeutic advances in MS, including patients with COVID-19 concerns, will be analyzed. This interactive, educational activity is designed to address the intersection of healthcare disparities, immune-science, and the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on therapeutic decision-making for all patients with multiple sclerosis.

Educational Objectives

  1. Discuss current healthcare disparities for the management of all patients with multiple sclerosis
  2. Analyze the immune-science relationship between COVID-19 infections and therapeutic options in MS
  3. Explore clinical applications of the latest therapeutic advances in MS to manage all patients, including patients with COVID-19 concerns

Please also join the expert faculty, led by Fred D. Lublin, MD, for the Advanced Curriculum for Multiple Sclerosis course, immediately before the ACTRIMS Forum on February 23rd and 24th, 2021. The Advanced Curriculum for Multiple Sclerosis 2021 virtual grand rounds experience is an innovative, comprehensive medical education program that delivers clinicians the best in science relative to all aspects of the MS disease spectrum. This two-day, virtual, interactive curriculum experience will utilize a longer-term patient case series to allow for in-depth clinical decision making on MS diagnostics, biomarkers, imaging, accurate differential diagnosis, first-line therapeutics, mitigation of adverse events, specific considerations for limiting disability, reducing progression, monitoring disease activity, switching therapies as needed, treating symptoms, managing special populations, and effectively utilizing the extended healthcare team.
