MS Foundation MasterClass 10 – 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 newly developing special interest in MS (GPwSI) or an Associate Specialist with a special interest in neurology then this course could be perfect for you.
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), specialist registrars (SpRs), GPs with a special interest (GPwSI) 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.
