The programme first establishes your current practice, takes you through a six module e-learning course (including content from the UEMS/EACCME-accredited meeting “Integrating Innovations in the Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis into Clinical Practice”) and then provides a structured, self-reflective tool to help you implement new treatment strategies in your own clinical practice
This educational activity is intended for any healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of patients with multiple sclerosis
Upon completing of the programme, participants should be able to:
- Understand the evolution of the multiple sclerosis treatment landscape over the last 25 years, in particular how our evolving understanding of the disease has guided the development of new therapies
- Describe the current and new strategies for treating multiple sclerosis, including the use of new agents
- Identify the risks and benefits of these newer treatment strategies and reflect on your own patient interactions, in comparison to your peers, when implementing them in daily practice
This programme has been partly supported by an independent educational grant from Merck KGaA, Darmastadt, Germany
The e-learning course, Supporting the implementation of new treatment strategies in MS into clinical practice, developed and organized by Clinically Current, has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 2 European CME credits (ECMEC®s) to provide the following CME activity for medical specialists. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent on the educational materials.
The EACCME® is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS). Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) and the American Medical Association (AMA), physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM.
Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.
