MSIF have published What is an MS Centre in collaboration with Rehabilitation in MS (RIMS), the Consortium of MS Centers (CMSC) and the International Organization of Multiple Sclerosis Nurses (IOMSN).
Meeting the challenges of MS on a daily basis is a task that no one should have to face alone. People with MS need accessible, comprehensive care and services exist to meet their needs.
While some people have access to MS centres, with care teams made up of health professionals from a variety of disciplines, in many parts of the world such centres are non-existent.
This new guide from MSIF looks at the services and support an MS centre can provide, how MS centres are funded, relationships with MS societies and other topics. It should serve as the basis for discussion between countries where healthcare professionals and MS societies together are dedicated to improving the quality of the lives of people with MS.
