MS Brain Health Initiative: assessing the global impact

12 Oct 2020

MS Academy is pleased to support a survey aiming to assess the global impact of the MS Brain Health initiative. This body of work incorporates the report Brain health: time matters in multiple sclerosis,1 the consensus guidelines on MS care2 and associated resources for healthcare professionals and for people with MS.

Many of you will be aware of the work and its promotion of changes in practice to maximize lifelong ‘brain health’. The group is keen to understand how the work has influenced clinical practice and MS services across the UK and beyond.

The short questionnaire should only take 10 minutes to complete and your views will be gratefully received.
