Tackling Challenging MS Case Scenarios: Evaluating Missed Opportunities to Improve Care

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease with a complex clinical course, and many health care professionals may miss opportunities to deliver evidence-based care. Join our expert faculty as they discuss patient scenarios to highlight methods to avoid missed opportunities to provide optimal care for patients with MS.

Team Up Against MS: The Multidisciplinary Patient-Centered Team Approach to Multiple Sclerosis – Podcast

Patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) often need the intervention of multiple specialists, resulting in a complex organization of care. Listen in to this team of healthcare professionals from the MS Comprehensive Care Center at Holy Name Medical Center, who share their insights on best practices for patient-centered care of people with MS.

The MS Care Team share key aspects of their evolution as a team using two cases of patients with MS. This discussion highlights how they 1) evaluate existing practices, 2) identify areas of improvement, 3) prioritize and implement changes in care, and 4) assess their own progress toward achieving their patient-centered care goals.

Following the Trail of Evidence to Individualize and Optimize Multiple Sclerosis Care: Exploring the Use of Diagnostic Tools to Improve Early Detection of MS

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a progressive disease that causes irreversible damage to the central nervous system (CNS). This disabling neurologic disease is one of the most common causes of disability in individuals between the ages of 10 and 65 years old. It presents with a wide range of symptoms and therefore has a variable impact on motor and cognitive function, activities of daily living, and patient quality of life. Three-fourths of MS patients eventually become significantly disabled by this condition. Join Dr Edward Fox, Dr Jacquelyn Bainbridge, and Dr Stephanie Agrella in this three-part series as they focus on educating clinicians on the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of patients with MS.
