Program Description

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a highly heterogeneous disease with regard to presenting symptoms, disease activity, relapse, and rate of disability progression. Despite the availability of many approved disease modifying therapies (DMTs) that are capable of slowing disease progression, reducing relapse rate, and limiting disability, there remains an unmet need for new treatment options. Additionally, patients living with MS continue to experience diverse and burdensome symptoms that negatively impact day-to-day activities and quality of life. This enduring Virtual Lecture Hall activity brings together MS experts who will discuss scientific advances and clinical strategies that address these needs, focusing on recent clinical data on investigational DMTs, and reviewing practical treatment strategies to recognize and manage symptoms associated with patients who have MS.

Intended Audience

This activity is intended for neurologists, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and other healthcare providers who treat patients with MS. No prerequisites required.

Educational Objectives

After participating in this activity, the participant will demonstrate the ability to:

  • ASSESS investigational DMTs for MS, including relapsing and progressive MS.
  • IMPLEMENT strategies to recognize, mitigate, and manage symptoms associated with MS.
The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Institute for Johns Hopkins Nursing take responsibility for the content, quality, and scientific integrity of this CME/CNE activity.
