MS Advanced MasterClass 12 – Module 1

04 Nov 2020 - 05 Nov 2020

Our most in-depth exploration into the complexities of MS management and treatment, this course is for specialists who want to really hone their expertise and maximise their impact on patient outcomes. If you are a currently prescribing neurologist, a final-year registrar, an experienced MS specialist nurse or a pharmacist working with MS therapies, this course is the next level in learning meets application.

These courses are for neurologists who are currently prescribing, experienced MS nurses, final year registrars and pharmacists who may be working in a unit that prescribes MS therapies who want to increase or update their knowledge & belong to a network of MSologists. The course will advance understanding of MS through taught sessions and mentorship (a mentor will be appointed for each participant if required).
