  • Satellite symposium 02-10-2013

    • ECTRIMS 2013

      There is more to caring for MS patients than prescribing drugs: The collaboration between clinical professionals and MS patients is vital. The patient should be engaged in decision making and clinicians should keep communicating and take note of their specific aims, hopes, and plans. These issues are discussed in detail by Prof. Mark S. Freedman, Dr. Anthony Feinstein, and Dr. Alessandra Lugaresi.

    • Anthony Feinstein - Understanding our patients: the importance of effective communication

    • Alessandra Lugaresi - Engaging with patients to achieve treatments goals

    • David Bates - Discussion: patient engagement with MS treatment
