    Target Audience

    This educational activity is intended for any healthcare professionals with a special interest in neurology and multiple sclerosis (MS), including neurologists, neuroscientists and researchers, and allied healthcare professionals, such as MS specialist nurses

    Learning Objectives

    After completing this programme participants will be able to:

    • Identify how ‘measures of success’ guide optimum clinical practice in MS
    • Evaluate the relationship between disease activity and predicted disease course, and how this affects treatment choice in an era of expanding MS therapy options
    • Adapt patient management and maximize the opportunities arising from increasingly targeted approaches in MS
    • Propose partnerships between technology and biology that can – or will – benefit MS diagnosis and monitoring
    • Plan a change to make in practice now in preparation for the future
