Deciding about DMTs for MS

Enrol in Course


Deciding about Disease Modifying Therapies (DMTs) for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a free online course that aims to increase understanding about DMTs, help people communicate clearly about them and help people living with MS make informed decisions about using them. This includes deciding about starting, switching and stopping DMTs. 

The course consists of three modules. On successful completion you will be able to:

  • Explain what DMTs are and how they affect a person's body and MS
  • Describe the major types of DMTs
  • Discuss the major types of considerations affecting a person's selection of DMTs
  • Understand why a neurologist might recommend switching or stopping DMTs
  • Describe effective communication and how that relates to deciding on DMTs for MS.

This course was developed by the MS Research FlagshipMenzies Institute for Medical Research at the University of Tasmania in collaboration with the MS community and the Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre. Funding for the course development has been provided by the Australian Government.
