Social determinants of health – Raising the Bar workstream
After an initial meeting in 2018 to discuss service variance in MS, clinicians across the country agreed to a national plan to raise the bar for MS over the coming years.
To make sure that ‘no patient is left behind’, addressing the social determinants of health in people with MS is a must.
What the workstream is doing
Co-lead Prof Gavin Giovannoni tells us more about the workstream in this short video:
How can I get involved?
The workstream has developed a survey to gauge current healthcare practitioners’ engagement with SDoH in their work with people with MS. This is an area of health which affects us all. Please complete the survey to help gather the data needed to affect change.
