This course is the ultimate in specialism development and requires attendees to have a strong background and experience in MS as a starting point. Ideal for neurologists and healthcare professionals who already have a specialist interest in MS, this course is suited to those who, for example, are currently prescribing or managing patients on disease-modifying treatments (DMTs), are working in a unit that prescribes MS therapies, or are an MS nurse specialist or an allied health professional who has been practicing for at least three years in that role.
Our in-depth and practically-applicable learning tackles specific issues around the management of MS, such as de-risking MS DMTs or tackling the variation in MS care or service access in the UK. Course attendees are already equipped with a strong understanding of MS, including clinical management, patient experience and optimal treatment and service support.
