Several national health organizations have come together to design a series of continuing education opportunities focused on better managing multiple sclerosis entitled, Optimizing Multiple Sclerosis Management. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of leading MS organization for professionals, the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC); Nurse Practitioner Alternatives (NPA), and Spire Learning, allied health professionals nationwide can learn about the latest on how to improve the lives of MS patients.

These free CME/CE opportunities are scheduled to start in November, with the first one taking place in Portsmouth, NH on the 8th. Two more sessions will follow on the 15th in Troy, MI, and on December 13 in Pittsburgh, PA. Each session will be comprised of presentations and interactive, group discussions, and will follow a two-hour program that will cover 5 main areas of MS updates and education:

  • Diagnostic challenges and controversies in MS
  • Monitoring of therapeutic efficacy and disease progression
  • Treatment selection and individualization of therapy for MS patients
  • Comprehensive strategies for overall disease management
  • Methods to promote adherence

Dr. Scott Newsome, the Activity Chair and DO Assistant Professor of Neurology, Director, Neurology Outpatient Services & Neurology Infusion Center, Johns Hopkins Neuroimmunology and Neuroinfectious Diseases, Johns Hopkins Hospital, said the complexity of MS across individual cases in today’s rapidly-evolving healthcare industry requires providers to be constantly updated with real-world experiences and noted trends in treatment and patient responses.
