According to the CMSC, the 2013 Annual Meeting is “unique in bringing together all groups committed to improving the lives of people with MS,” and will provide “state-of-the-art information on the latest treatments, research, models of care, epidemiology, genetics, and much more.”

Among the learning objectives for attendees at this year’s meeting:

  • Identify key concepts of the immunologic and neuropathologic disease processes associated with multiple sclerosis.
  • Recognize that the pathophysiology of multiple sclerosis is affected by gender, ethnocultural origin, and environmental factors and tailor diagnosis and management appropriately
  • Appropriately utilize tools and strategies that facilitate patient assessment in order to differentiate between cognitive problems, depression, and related psychosocial issues.
  • Incorporate information obtained through appropriate assessments into therapeutic plans of care for each area of concern.
  • Analyze the complex mechanisms underlying the pathophysiology of multiple sclerosis in order to more appropriately initiate and sustain evidence-based therapeutic interventions.
  • Critically evaluate disease monitoring measures in order to facilitate effective therapeutic decision-making and outcome assessment.
