Multiple Sclerosis Guidelines Forum – 29th November 2017

Practical information – Biosketch  and program

Why a Multiple Sclerosis Guidelines Forum?

The objective is to better understand the existing Multiple Sclerosis guidelines development process and its implications in clinical practice. It is not to develop new guidelines, but to gather a multidisciplinary panel of leading international experts to discuss the latest evidence, ongoing research and controversial issues that have implications for the development of clinical practice guidelines.

All around the world, many chronic diseases are a burden for health systems and their management still needs to be improved. In most cases, the guidelines that are developed to improve outcome from taking care of these diseases are highly academic and have little interest to doctors, including neurologists. Those doctors are, in most countries, the only treating doctor that a patient with a chronic disease comes into contact with.
Accordingly, the process of guidelines elaboration needs critical improvements because of the lack of adherence of healthcare professionals and patients to their best practices.

The objectives of the Forum will be,

  • To have an in depth discussion between experts and industry about MS therapy guidelines optimization for the common interest of stakeholders during a closed meeting
  • To create a multi-stakeholders discussion Forum
  • To focus on most advanced knowledge
  • To identify gaps in treatment
  • To improve the development and utilization of guideline
  • To develop particularly “field guidelines” that are applicable to ethnically and racially diverse populations with different co-morbidities
  • To develop risk equations for specific geographies/populations
  • To define genetic profiles for specific geographies/populations to better understand responsiveness to therapies

The Translational Medicine Academy (TMA) is an international academic Foundation with focused activities in mission critical areas of high public health importance having significant professional and patient therapeutic and educational gaps.
