Topics for discussion

Age is highly a relevant factor in the clinical course of multiple sclerosis. This webinar will discuss the role of ageing in MS, how greater knowledge of this might halt non-relapse related progression and how the somatic and reproductive ageing processes are linked with the development of progressive MS. It will cover how comorbidities affect outcomes and where we as clinicians can improve outcomes through prevention and education for people with MS. The webinar will present an overview of the risks and benefits of disease modifying therapies in older adults and the comprehensive assessment priorities for the older person with MS.
