Biologics and Biosimilars: Preparing for the Future!  

Welcome to Biologics and Biosimilars: Preparing for the Future!
This is a series of 7 interactive modules. Each module builds on the content presented in the previous one, so it is highly recommended that you proceed through the curriculum in sequence. As biosimilar guidance evolves in the United States and these biologics are studied and FDA-approved for use, it will be important for clinicians to understand how biosimilars’ characteristics overlap with, and differ from, other available biologic therapies, so that effective treatment selection and monitoring, and related patient education, can be achieved.

A Practical Guide to Rehabilitation in Multiple Sclerosis advocates for a multi-dimensional, comprehensive care approach to promote positive outcomes for individuals with MS, and rehabilitation is an integral part of comprehensive MS care. There is a documented need for improvements in rehabilitative services, including incorporation of standardized measures for the evaluation and ongoing assessment of persons with MS, increased awareness for the signs and symptoms of a change in patient status, and a need for patient engagement in identification of rehabilitation goals and treatment strategies. Increased collaboration and communication between disciplines is needed to fully realize the goals of MS rehabilitation and optimize quality of life for those with MS.
