Individualizing long-term treatment and care in active MS: How are therapeutic sequencing options evolving to address unmet needs?
After watching this activity, participants should be better able to:
- Evaluate factors guiding the use of high-efficacy DMTs in the management of active MS
- Summarize current approaches and safety considerations relating to DMT switching and sequencing in MS
- Appraise the use of DMTs in women of child-bearing age with MS, including considerations for family planning and implications during pregnancy and beyond
In this activity, two experts in MS explore the evolving practicalities of therapeutic sequencing options in MS. They discuss when to consider high-efficacy DMTs, how to optimize a switch in DMT, and practical considerations surrounding the use of DMTs in women of child-bearing age living with MS.
The discussion is guided by pre-canvassed questions provided by healthcare professionals involved in the management of people living with MS.
