Often seen in Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS), chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) and multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN), arise as a consequence of immune system involvement and can have myriad health consequences. Both CIDP and MMN are characterized by complex presentations and frequent misdiagnoses. CIDP shows gradual peripheral nerve demyelination, leading to weakness and sensory loss, while MMN presents with asymmetric weakness devoid of sensory complications. With an array of treatment options, managing polyneuropathy in CIDP and MMN can be challenging. This collaborative platform serves as a unifying space for healthcare providers, facilitating the exchange of insights and elevating the standard of care for patients affected by CIDP and MMN. In this learning activity, you will learn how to enhance the lives of CIDP and MMN patients via a program promoting local and cross-community support, driving effective practice-sharing for better outcomes.
The following questions are designed to assess your knowledge and practice of patients with CIDP and MMN.
This module will discuss the presentation and differential diagnoses for CIDP and MMN.
This module will discuss the approach for diagnosing CIDP and MMN.
This module will discuss the treatments of CIDP and MMN, and emerging new formulations.
The following questions are designed to assess your gained knowledge and practice of patients with CIDP and MMN.
During this session, we will review the self-study modules and discuss approaches to treatment that offer optimal care to patients with CIDP and MMN.
During this session, we will review the patient case and discuss treatment plans. Additionally, we will share our action plans and how this CME activity will shape our practice regarding patient care.
Meet Richard, a 71-year-old man who was brought to the ER after falling during an appointment with his family doctor.
