How understanding of MS patient experiences, with respect to conversations about disease progression, differs among healthcare professions
Celius E G et al. 2020
Presented virtually at the annual congress of the European Association of Neurology (EAN) in 2020, this poster showcases the results from a 6-question survey developed by MS in the 21st Century to understand the perspectives of neurologists, nurses and people with multiple sclerosis (PwMS) on communication about disease progression.
Results highlighted several key insights about unmet needs in discussing progression, and the marked discrepancies between the perceptions of healthcare professionals (HCPs) and PwMS. The insights gathered offer an important resource for optimizing conversations between HCPs and PwMS about disease progression, which is a challenging but important topic to address.
