About the resource

The fact that pharmacological options now exist for some people with MS means they need to be increasingly more informed and updated about their disease, its daily management and about progress in research. This has resulted in an evolution in the relationship between the clinician, the MS nurse and the “patient”. Today, more than ever, a person with MS has the tools to be an active decision-maker when it comes to choosing a treatment.

Whether you are a healthcare professional, a person with MS or a family member, we hope that this issue of MS in focus answers your questions about MS pharmacological treatments.
