“I’m a bit confused… you said ‘progressive’. Does that mean my condition is going to get worse?”
MS in the 21st Century is dedicated to improving communication between people with MS and healthcare professionals, and through three years of original research (see our publications here), the group has identified a number of key topics that both MS patients and HCPs feel could benefit from more effective communication; in particular, the concept of disease progression.
If you are a healthcare professional involved in MS care, or a person living with MS, please take our survey below to help MS in the 21st Century understand your perspective on disease progression conversations, and ultimately, develop solutions to help overcome barriers to effective communication.
