The multiple sclerosis (MS) field is rapidly expanding and the challenge to deliver high quality, cost- effective care is becoming increasingly complex. To navigate the landscape of MS service provision in the UK, effective leadership is required. However, the skills required to become a leader capable of impactful change are suboptimally developed at a time when they are the most needed.

The MS Academy has recognised this critical training gap and launched a 6-month multifaceted leadership programme tailored to MS experts, focusing on personal and professional development of key leadership qualities and skillsets.

Goals of the leadership programme:

Leaders who are most effective today know who they are in terms of their strengths and guiding principles. They also articulate a clear vision for themselves, their work and their teams. This programme provides guidance for delegates to first develop their own leadership in order to effectively lead others, and lead or influence their institutions.

Specific goals include:

  • Identify and develop future leaders from the MS field who have little leadership experience

  • Develop and implement a mentoring program between participants and established leaders

  • Enhance skills of those who have already assumed or are about to assume leadership roles within their Institutions, the MS field, and, more broadly, the field of neurology
