  • Assess the etiology, pathophysiology, and diagnosis of MS in order to determine appropriate treatment approaches that improve patient outcomes.
  • Apply knowledge of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and markers to diagnose, monitor intervention, and determine disease progression to formulate treatment strategies for patients with MS.
  • Determine the appropriate use of current and emerging MS agents in treatment strategies for MS patients that improve outcomes through knowledge of their MOA, efficacy, and safety.
  • Customize therapies for MS patients based on an understanding of their form of MS, symptoms, concomitant medications, co-morbidities, and compliance to improve their response.
  • Integrate therapies that offer improved compliance based on knowledge of the various agents, their mode of administration, and patients’ preferences to ensure more-successful treatment regimens.
    • Clinical trials versus real-world treatment regimens
    • Customizing MS therapies
    • Strategies for treatment-related side-effect management
    • Strategies for managing suboptimal responders
    • Injectable versus oral MS therapies
    • Immunopathology and inflammation in MS
    • Mechanism for altering the natural history of MS
    • Advances in the role of MRIs in MS
    • Current and emerging MS treatments
    • Monitoring disease progression, side effects of therapy, and adherence to treatment
    • Case studies—expert insights into challenging MS cases
