Overview

Treatment Strategies and Safety Updates in Multiple Sclerosis is organized by ProCE, Inc. and will be held from Aug 28, 2019 - Aug 28, 2022.

Course Description:
Multiple Sclerosis (MS), often referred to as the “invisible illness”, is a debilitating and often crippling neurodegenerative disease that greatly decreases the quality of life and may lead to pronounced disability. Over the last 25 years, MS treatment options have rapidly evolved and multiple safety updates for treatments were released toward the end of 2018. Clinical, speciality, and managed care pharmacists must be both familiar with and educated on treatment options, implications, and safety and access considerations for patients. Pharmacists are critically involved in the initiation, guidance, and evaluation of appropriate treatment strategies for MS. Additionally, both clinical and speciality pharmacists are positioned to identify and anticipate potential barriers to medication access and adherence, such as prior authorization submission and formulary challenges. Activities focused on the updated research and recommendations will provide pharmacists with short and long-term management strategies for patients with MS and help to ensure improved overall care coordination.

Learning Objectives:
At the completion of this activity, the participant will be better able to:
• Outline changes within the 2018 AAN Multiple Sclerosis Practice Guidelines.
• Compare and contrast available MS treatments by patient subtype and recognize emerging therapies in the pipeline.
• Analyze updated safety insights and considerations for MS treatments.
• Identify strategies for engaging patients in education and shared decision-making to improve adherence and quality of life.
