MS is a clinically complex, multifaceted disease whose management necessitates a collaborative care approach capable of adapting to the changing needs of the patient. Join Fred D. Lublin, MD, as he follows a patient with MS through initial diagnosis, relapse, and progressive disease. With this interactive, case-based approach, Dr Lublin will examine evidence-based strategies for treatment selection and modification relative to the patient's course of illness, as well as tools to assess treatment effectiveness. Collaborative care approaches to optimize patient outcomes will also be explored.

This educational activity is co-provided by the CMSC, IOMSN, NPA, and Spire Learning, and is supported by an educational grant from Genentech, Inc.

Registration information is coming soon.
