Conference highlights and looking forward: CMSC, EAN and ACTRIMS-ECTRIMS

Event reports

During the past two months, Neurology Academy has brought you coverage from two of the biggest conferences of the year for neurology: the European Association of Neurologists Congress 2020 from 23-26 May, and the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Center's annual meeting, from 26-29 May. From video interviews and recorded discussions to written summaries and capsule findings novel research, we have updated you on…

The EAN Congress 2020

MSologists and neuropharmacists who attended have reported hopes of potential remyelination and discussions of disease-modifying treatment (DMT) aimed at reducing PIRA rather than combating inflammation, have sat alongside the latest in DMT safety, efficacy and monitoring and recent, encouraging findings for prepubescents with highly active MS.

The CMSC Annual Meeting

Specialist nurses in attendance have summarised a wide range of topics from mental health and behavioural medicine to rehabilitation and the importance of movement, to cannabis use and the importance of nutrition. Many of our clinical reporters came away with practical changes they will be making, from implementing nurse-led cognitive testing, to altering the pattern of medication management in women looking to conceive.

ACTRIMS and ECTRIMS joint virtual meeting 2020

Now, we are looking forward to the next big conference: the joint ACTRIMS and ECTRIMS 2020 taking pace from 11-13 September. America's, and the European, Committees for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis's 8th annual congress was due to take place in Washington, but instead will take place virtually, due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Neurology Academy intends to provide coverage of this prestigious conference as with the EAN and CMSC – and we would love to know what you are most interested in, and how you would like the conference reported.
