THE ROLE OF CARE MANAGEMENT IN IMPROVING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS (MS) CARE

According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, MS is thought to affect more than 2.3 million people worldwide.¹ The progressive, unpredictable nature of MS and its symptoms combined with the disease’s emotional and social impact creates a complex clinical challenge for healthcare professionals.² The Care Manager Multiple Sclerosis program is designed to support patients with MS through their experiences and outcomes. The program includes a live workshop and a website with educational tools and downloadable resources for patients.

The Care Manager Workshop Program

The workshop is designed to provide an opportunity to learn from other MS experts and discuss how care management can help.
