    10th International Symposium on Gait and Balance in Multiple Sclerosis is GOING VIRTUAL!
    https://www.chhs.colostate.edu/hes-h...iple-sclerosis


    The Role of Fatigue and Fatigability
    This year’s meeting focuses on the construct of fatigue in MS. People with MS are likely to experience abnormal levels of both fatigue and fatigability that can affect gait and balance, which subsequently decreases participation and quality of life. While rehabilitation and pharmaceutical interventions can improve fatigue and fatigability, treatment can be challenging for clinical providers, especially as it relates to gait and balance. This year’s symposium will disseminate current knowledge on fatigue and fatigability as related to gait and balance in PwMS by providing updates on operational definitions, underlying mechanisms, measurement, and clinical management strategies.


    Who should attend
    Multiple sclerosis clinicians or researchers, including physicians (neurologists, physiatrists), physical therapists, occupational therapists, rehabilitation scientists, nurses, physician assistants, and others in the field of gait and balance.


    Learning objectives
    After the program, attendees will be able to 1) define types of fatigue and fatigability, and explain how they relate to gait and balance in PwMS; 2) identify neural and physiologic mechanisms that contribute to fatigue and fatigability; 3) identify common methods to measure fatigue and fatigability in PwMS; and 4) apply appropriate management strategies for fatigue and fatigability with the goal of optimizing gait and balance in PwMS.


    Abstracts are due July 10, 2020. Please visit https://www.chhs.colostate.edu/hes-h...iple-sclerosis for additional information.
