1 2012 CME Annual meeting in multiple sclerosis MS: from disease management to patient management Valencia, Spain May 2012

2 Dear Colleague On behalf of the Serono Symposia International Foundation we are delighted to welcome you to the 2012 annual continuing medical education (CME) accredited meeting: MS: from disease management to patient management. At this meeting, leading international experts will come together to discuss current and future approaches to the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS). You will also have the opportunity to earn CME credits. This interactive meeting is divided into four sessions. Session 1 will cover the pharmacological targets of current and possible future therapies, and the requirement for close safety monitoring of newer therapies. In session 2 we will detail how the neurologist can best use the tools available for optimal diagnosis of MS and prediction of disease course. Session 3 will focus on current and future techniques to predict and monitor response to treatment, and in session 4 we will discuss the clinical management of MS, the relationship with the patient and how this can affect treatment adherence. Case studies will be presented, offering you the opportunity to discuss various aspects of clinical practice with the panel of experts. The aims of the 2012 annual conference are to provide an update on the latest understanding of MS pathophysiology and the mechanisms of action of current drugs, to discuss how best to diagnose patients and then predict and monitor treatment response, and to provide guidance on how best to ensure patients get optimal benefit from treatment. We anticipate that this programme will provide valuable updates for the clinician, and will stimulate engaging and enlightened debate on many of the complex issues surrounding the management of patients with MS. We hope that you will be able to join us and we look forward to your active participation.

By attending the conference, participants will: be updated on MS pathophysiology and modes of action of individual drugs discuss the use of standardized diagnostic criteria in daily practice improve their skills in sharing information with patients to increase adherence understand present and future biomarkers of response to treatment.
