COVID-19 vaccination. For many people with multiple sclerosis, it’s not a simple and straightforward process. The DMT they’re currently taking to control disease progression and moderate their symptoms — particularly if it’s a beta cell- depleting agent — may prevent the vaccine from working as it’s supposed to. What do clinicians need to know, and how should they explain it to their patients?  Dr. Joseph Sabatino from the University of California San Francisco presented the basics in his recent newsletter issue; now he brings that information into the clinic in this eMultipleSclerosis Review podcast. Take our post-test to claim CME credits.To read a companion newsletter click here.

Shared decision-making — what does it mean in multiple sclerosis? Can it really help providers more fully understand their patients’ concerns? Can it motivate patients to more readily and enthusiastically take ownership of their disease? And most important, how can it be developed in the clinic? Join us in this eMultipleSclerosis Review podcast, as we talk about the why and how of shared decision-making in MS with PA Lisa Fox from the Department of Neurology at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.  Take our post-test to claim CME credits.To read a companion newsletter click here.

As the number of new MS therapies continues to grow, so does the uncertainty about which management approach — escalation or highly effective disease-modifying therapy — is best for each patient. What are the patient-specific factors that indicate the most appropriate DMT selection? What’s known about the potential longer-term risks associated with highly effective therapies? That’s the focus of our discussion with Dr. Yujie Wang from the University of Washington and Johns Hopkins University, and Dr. Anne Damian-Yacoub from Johns Hopkins University in this eMultipleSclerosis Review podcast. Take our post-test to claim CME credits.To read a companion newsletter click here.

Selecting the most appropriate Disease Modifying Therapy (DMT) is becoming more complicated for patients with MS and clinicians who treat them. Newer approaches and newer agents are altering the benefit/risk equation, and making the question of which treatment is most appropriate for which patient more difficult to answer. That’s the focus of our discussion with Dr. Erin Longbrake, Assistant Professor of Neurology and Director of the Multiple Sclerosis Fellowship Program at Yale University, in this eMultipleSclerosis Review podcast. Take our post-test to claim CME credits.To read a companion newsletter click here.

Successful management of multiple sclerosis has gone beyond slowing disease progression and preventing relapses. Improving patients’ health-related quality of life by recognizing and addressing the pervasive chronic symptoms of the disease — spasticity, fatigue, depression, cognitive dysfunction — has become increasingly important. In this eMultipleSclerosis Review Podcast, Dr. Bardia Nourbakhsh from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine provides clinical insight into reducing the disease burden of these common symptoms. Take our post-test to claim CME credits.To read a companion newsletter click here.
