  Statement of Need/Program Overview

Despite the availability of more than a dozen disease modifying treatments (DMTs), health care resource utilization associated with multiple sclerosis (MS) is significant and continues to rise. The continually evolving MS treatment landscape accentuates the need for increased disease and therapeutic knowledge amongst managed care and specialty pharmacy professionals in order to optimize clinical outcomes, reduce treatment variability, and increase patient engagement in their own care. The expert faculty panel will discuss best practices to deliver quality care to MS patients and improve quality of life over the course of the disease.

  Educational Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to demonstrate improved ability to:
  • Review the safety, efficacy, and other attributes of emerging MS therapies
  • Discuss recent insights into cost offsets associated with new and emerging MS therapies
  • Employ specialty pharmacy management and benefit design strategies for MS therapies to promote appropriate prescribing
  • Analyze care pathways and their application to manage economic outcomes in MS
