Overview

The field of Multiple Sclerosis is rapidly evolving year by year requiring continuous education on all main aspects of the disease from pathogenesis to treatment. The aim of this blended learning journey is to strengthen knowledge in the main clinical  and  therapeutic  dynamics  that characterize  modern  MS.

A multistep  approach  will  be  used,  encompassing  web-based  and  live  activities.  The live intervention has come to its 16th edition and will provide an overview of advancements in MS through the knowledge and experience of local and international speakers. All  activities  –  in person and online – will involve the full interactivity of learners.

Learning objectives

By attending this live intervention, participants will be able to:

  • Describe immunopathogenesis of MS considering recent discoveries
  • Apply new diagnostic criteria for MS
  • Explain how to specific clinical challenges in MS (i.e. pregnancy, paediatric MS)
  • Illustrate new treatment targets in MS
