  • The past few years have seen exciting developments in understanding the pathophysiology and disease processes of MS and new diagnostic methodologies. Many emerging therapeutic agents are now in development with new data rapidly emerging.

    The first oral therapeutics in MS have completed phase III trials and may soon become available. This outstanding free program offers you an excellent opportunity to keep current on all of these developments. Curriculum I courses present an overview of diagnostic and management strategies for MS patients, focusing on cutting-edge topics. Curriculum II presents more advanced courses that build on new scientific developments and the topics covered in Curriculum I. Curriculum III showcases important journal articles published in late 2009 through 2010, provides four new case studies featuring common clinical issues not discussed in the last two curricula, two podcasts that highlight presentations from the 2010 ECTRIMS and the 2011 AAN annual meetings, and a webcast that reviews new knowledge about potential MS risk factors and their clinical implications.

    Featuring the very latest state-of-the-science information about MS diagnosis and treatment, this free online curriculum offers CME, CE, and CPE credit to neurologists and other clinicians who care for patients with MS.

    New curriculum courses are continuously made available online throughout the year. Complete all courses by July 2011, and receive a certificate of advanced study.

    The Advanced Certificate Program in Multiple Sclerosis Management III brings to you a community of experts to help you provide your patients with the best treatment outcomes possible.
  • Assess the etiology, pathophysiology, and diagnosis of MS in order to determine appropriate treatment approaches that improve patient outcomes.
  • Apply knowledge of current and emerging imaging technologies, including MRI, to diagnose, monitor intervention, and determine disease progression to formulate and improve treatment strategies for patients with MS.
  • Evaluate the immune and inflammatory response in MS, potential targets for therapeutic intervention, and the molecular complexity of MS therapies that affect their safety and efficacy to select optimal therapies and strategies for the treatment of MS patients.
  • Assess and differentiate across current and emerging MS therapies based on an understanding of MOA, safety, and efficacy to develop optimal treatment strategies that improve patient outcomes.
  • Evaluate long-term efficacy and safety of MS therapies with regard to disability (EDSS, MSSS, MSFC), QOL, pharmacoeconomics and patient outcomes.
  • Customize therapies for MS patients based on an understanding of their form of MS, symptoms, concomitant medications, comorbidities, and compliance, to improve their response.
  • Target Audience

    This series of activities is designed for neurologists and primary care physicians (including family practice, internists, and general practitioners), as well as nurses and pharmacists, who manage and treat patients with multiple sclerosis.

     

    Activity Goal

    The goal of these CME/CE activities is to examine current and emerging strategies for diagnosing, treating, and managing patients with multiple sclerosis.
