 Clinician-Patient Shared Decision Making in MS: An Essential Step toward Better Outcomes

A 3-Part CME/CNE-certified Series

 

This series focused on shared decision making and patient-centered care in MS, will examine the practice of motivational interviewing (MI) and how it can help clinicians prompt patients to think about their diagnosis and therapeutic options. The management of MS is increasingly challenging due to the wide variation in the clinical course for each patient, an increasing number of therapeutic options, and evolving best practices. Neurologists and other clinicians on the multidisciplinary MS care team have the opportunity to improve outcomes for patients with MS by supporting the tailored use of disease-modifying therapies (DMTs) and engaging patients more fully in their own care.

Target audience:

These activities is designed for neurologists, mental health specialists, physician assistants (PAs), and nurse practitioners (NPs) as well as nurses and other professionals who care for patients and families affected by MS.
