C116 - Multiple Sclerosis Therapy: Symptom Management

Event Time: Tuesday April 25, 2017 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): MS and CNS Inflammatory Disease
Director(s): Jonathan Carter MD
Description: Symptom management in MS remains a very important determinant of quality of life in MS patients, even with the advent of increasing numbers of MS disease-modifying therapies. Symptoms of MS may be under-recognized and there are knowledge gaps among neurologists regarding management of these common symptoms. Faculty will review the management of common MS symptoms including spasticity, fatigue, gait disorders, bladder problems, bowel problems, and sexual dysfunction, and conclude with a panel discussion regarding management of these and other commonly encountered symptoms in MS patients. This program complements C36: Multiple Sclerosis Therapy: Disease-modifying Treatment I and C54: Multiple Sclerosis Therapy: Disease-modifying Treatment II, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to diagnose and treat symptoms of fatigue, sleep disorders, spasticity, gait difficulties, bladder and bowel symptoms, and sexual dysfunction in MS patients.
