MS Foundation MasterClass 17 – Module 1
An essential course in the fundamentals of MS clinically, as well as in terms of lived experience with MS and optimal service support, this is the ideal introduction to MS as a specialism. If you are a clinical nurse specialist (CNS), a GP with a new extended role in MS (GPwER) or an associate specialist with a special interest in neurology then this course could be perfect for you.
Module 2: 9 & 10 November 2023
To complete the course delegates must return for Module 2 where they will present their inter-module project/audit to the Academy.
Halifax Hall, Sheffield University Campus
Endcliffe Vale Road
The ideal course for those who have a solid grounding in neurology but want to develop a special interest in MS, course attendees might include clinical nurse specialists (CNSs), allied health professionals (AHPs), specialist registrars (SpRs), GPs with an extended role in MS (GPwER) or associated specialists.
This course, focussed on practical application as with all our MasterClasses, aims to provide an introduction and broad overview of the modern management of MS, including diagnosis and current treatment options. Promoting holistic management of MS, the course will provide practical learning and inspiring service models that are cemented through the inter-module project, an essential part of the overall course. Attendees have free reign over this project. It might be service delivery, patient management or drug treatments, and it could take the form of a service description, an audit, or another form of research. It should meet a local need.

Extremely well organised, excellent content and very knowledgeable, inspiring and experienced speakers.
