This live, Online Programme will take place at 15.00 (CEST), on both 11th & 12th October, 2021. International experts will address the main scientific breakthroughs in the field and will provide practical suggestions for managing patients in clinical practice.

Overview

Understanding and cure of Multiple Sclerosis is rapidly improving through the wide application of new technologies. They are used in all MS fields, like development of biomarkers, sophisticated imaging techniques of central nervous system, new drugs with innovative targets as well as new tools for remote patients monitoring.

The recent COVID-19 pandemic has boosted these processes that were already in place in MS in the past years. Nevertheless, the pandemic has also highlighted the need of new information and deep knowledge about the impact of viruses on immunocompromised hosts, such as MS patients, and of vaccines.

There are still many controversial themes, such as how to manage progressive MS patients, that are currently debated among neurologists and neuroscientists involved in MS field.

This workshop aims to provide updated scientific insights on the world of contemporary MS. International experts will address the main scientific breakthroughs in the field and will provide practical suggestions for managing patients in clinical practice.

Learning objectives

  • Describe new methods to measure cortical damage and disease severity in MS
  • Illustrate mechanisms of action and safety profile of new MS treatments
  • Describe emerging environmental factors influencing MS development
  • Discuss how to manage vaccines in immunosuppressed MS patients

Accreditation details

This educational programme will be submitted for CME accreditation to the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®).
