As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have learned valuable lessons pertinent to MS care. This includes knowledge about COVID-19 severity and infection risk (especially as it relates to DMT selection), a much greater understanding of how DMTs affect SARS-CoV-2 vaccine responses, ways to potentially optimize vaccine responses, and the role of telemedicine. This program covers some of these major lessons learned about MS care. The Gather-ed collaborative social learning platform establishes a network of providers who can support each other with the goal of learning and sharing best practices that will improve outcomes for patients with MS.
