Multiple Sclerosis: An Immersive Virtual Patient Simulation

Program Overview

Interact with virtual patients and physicians to learn practical, data-driven strategies that will help you diagnose and treat multiple sclerosis (MS). Take the challenge: Practice managing patients with MS with virtual peers in an interactive, 3D environment. Make decisions and receive conversational feedback from a virtual MS expert, just like in Grand Rounds. Two challenging scenarios include diagnosis, personalized pharmacologic strategies, adherence, how to manage treatment failure, and managing MS in the peripartum setting.

Target Audience

The target audience for this activity are neurology providers including physicians, as well as NPs and PAs, who diagnose and manage patients with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Diagnose the spectrum of multiple sclerosis (MS), from radiologically isolated syndrome (RIS) to clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) to MS phenotypes using updated diagnostic criteria and the latest expert consensus guidelines
  • Appropriately initiate and switch available disease-modifying therapies (DMTs) for high-risk CIS and MS on the basis of their efficacy, safety, and tolerability profiles, as well as treatment response, and anticipate the use of novel DMTs in late-phase development
  • Use shared decision making when prescribing and switching DMTs to promote treatment adherence and positive patient outcomes
  • Prescribe DMTs in women of child-bearing age on the basis of available DMT safety data, and adjust management according to anticipated changes in disease activity during and after pregnancy
