AANP developed and produced the educational tool through support from Janssen Biotech Inc., administered by Janssen Scientific Affairs LLC and Takeda Pharmaceuticals International Inc., U.S.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Symptoms and Management

Managing patients with MS in the primary care setting can be a complex process. One key component is understanding the signs and symptoms consistent with demyelinating disease. AANP has created a resource document for NPs who manage patients with MS that outlines the common symptoms found in MS and an overview of management techniques for the most commonly seen symptoms.

Patient Education Tools and Resources

AANP-developed MS Resources

AANP, in collaboration with educational partner Med-IQ and four expert NPs, has developed a series of educational resources to help NPs start important conversations with patients about strategies for living well with MS. The goal of these resources is to improve the recognition of potential MS resources and encourage patients to discuss issues they may be having with their NPs. The development of these materials is supported by an educational grant from Teva Pharmaceuticals.
