Statement of Need
Recent studies have demonstrated the benefits of early and aggressive treatment strategies in reducing disability progression and the frequency of relapses in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS), marking a paradigm shift in the treatment of patients with RRMS. The traditional escalation approach is now often set aside in favor of the more individualized "induction" approach, which utilizes "early and aggressive" treatment with high-efficacy disease-modifying therapies (DMTs) to treat patients with high-risk disease.
The induction approach requires the selection of DMTs based on disease activity, prognostic factors, and patient characteristics. This is challenging for clinicians due to the expanding treatment landscape for RRMS and the lack of specific guidelines. Additionally, neurologists often lack the knowledge and competence to identify patients who are candidates for this approach.
In this CME Outfitters live virtual symposium, expert faculty will focus on the prognostic factors that should be considered when developing treatment plans for patients with MS, as well as the latest clinical data on approved and emerging DMTs so that clinicians can confidently develop tailored treatment approaches based on individual patient characteristics and appropriately monitor treatment response, safety, and tolerability.
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
• Select patients with RRMS who are likely to benefit from early treatment with high-efficacy DMTs.
• Develop tailored treatment approaches based on individual patient characteristics.
• Apply the latest clinical data on approved and emerging DMTs in monitoring treatment response, safety, and tolerability.
The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:
• Describe patients with RRMS who are likely to benefit from early treatment with high-efficacy DMTs.
• Summarize a tailored treatment approaches based on individual patient characteristics.
• Explain the latest clinical data on approved and emerging DMTs in monitoring treatment response, safety, and tolerability.
Neurologists, MS specialists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists.
