Program Overview:

Cognitive changes can be expected in more than half of multiple sclerosis (MS) patients and include deficits in processing speed, working memory, episodic memory, spatial processing, verbal fluency, and executive function. These impairments can be highly disruptive to personal independence, social interaction, and quality of life. Join Dr. Kottil Rammohan and a distinguished panel of experts for a unique, comprehensive workshop on the assessment of MS-related cognitive impairment, the role of neuroimaging in diagnosis and monitoring, and the potential impact of disease-modifying therapies on improving cognition.

Learning Objectives:
  • Incorporate the assessment of cognitive and psychological dysfunction into clinical assessment
  • Utitilize current guidelines for the use of MRI to correlate clinical findings with neuroimaging
  • Incorporate research findings on the potential efficacy of disease modifications into treatment decisions in those patients experiencing both active disease and cognitive and emotional dysfunction
