Multifocal Motor Neuropathy
The course „Multifocal Motor Neuropathy” will give you a detailed overview on how to correctly diagnose this rare inflammatory neuropathy by walking you through the necessary clinical investigations and by presenting the current diagnostic criteria. It also provides practical guidance on how to manage this slowly progressive asymmetric immune-mediated disorder.
1. Understand the clinical characteristics of Multifocal Motor Neuropathy (MMN)
2. Know the appropriate diagnostic work up and diagnostic criteria for MMN and be able to differentiate the disorder from other neuropathies with similar presentation (e.g. ALS or chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy)
3. Be able to describe how to effectively use available treatments for MMN
4. Discuss treatment outcomes and unmet medical needs
This educational activity is designed for a Swiss/international audience of neurologists, neuroimmunologists, clinical and translational researchers, and other physicians and health care professionals treating patients with multiple sclerosis and other demyelinating diseases and neuropathies. In addition, members of patient advocacy groups will also benefit from this program.
