CME: The Science of MS Management: Effects of Aging on the Disease Course and Management of MS

A major benefit of disease-modifying treatment, earlier diagnosis, and better comprehensive care in multiple sclerosis (MS) is the ability of many patients to live fuller lives. This has resulted in greater numbers of older individuals living with MS than previously. Although MS is often viewed as a disease of young adults, there is a growing population of patients entering middle or older age, and some whom were initially diagnosed at older ages. While caring for older patients can present unique treatment challenges, today there is greater emphasis on wellness, rehabilitation, and maximizing quality of life for this patient population.
Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant should be able to:
  • Describe the effects of aging on neurodegeneration and neuroplasticity in MS
  • Discuss how age-related hormonal changes affect course of disease in MS
  • RDetermine comprehensive management approaches for older individuals with MS
