Patients' DMT Decision-Making

In this issue:

How does a patient choose which DMT to start on?  Switch to?  Discontinue?  What do patients with MS need to know about common comorbidities to minimize their contribution to disease progression?  What evidence-based measures can clinicians take to provide the most effective care?

In this issue, Dr. Ellen Mowry, Associate Professor of Neurology and Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, brings recent findings about patient decision-making and addressing common comorbidities into the MS clinic.

Learning objectives:

  • Discuss the communications issues that influence patients’ disease-modifying therapy decision-making.
  • Describe potential strategies for addressing comorbidities in the clinical care of individuals with MS.
