Data - Focussing on the best practice currently available

Data is at the heart of really understanding our population and its needs - data is what is happening, whilst audit is more likely to be why things are happening, and the two go hand in hand.

Data is one means of establishing the national and local picture in real terms, as one of the posters submitted demonstrates.

It is also often the route to digital and technological improvements, and the means of monitoring their efficacy, as two of the other poster submissions explored. This category of posters includes the winner of the overall poster competition - voted for as the best project showcased at the conference: the MyMedical Record.

Encouraging excellence, developing leaders, inspiring change

The six different levels of specialist MS training are dedicated to case-based learning and practical application of cutting edge research. Home to national programme Raising the Bar and the fantastic workstream content it is producing, this is an exciting Academy to belong to.
