DD SIG Episode 42: Frailty in Multiple Sclerosis with Jake Sosnoff 

In this episode, we talk with Jake Sosnoff, Ph.D. about frailty in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). We cover how frailty is defined in geriatrics and how that definition applies to frailty seen in MS, as well as how clinicians can use evidence-based tools to characterize frailty in their patients with MS. Host Herb Karpatkin also talks with Jake about whether frailty in MS is modifiable; how clinicians can approach treating patients with MS and frailty based on the available evidence; and why taking a multicomponent, interdisciplinary approach to treating frailty in patients with MS is important.
