Systematic mapping of global family-orientated educational offerings for people with multiple sclerosis and members of their support networks
Laroni A et al. 2019
This poster was presented at the annual meeting of the European Charcot Foundation (ECF) in 2019, and showcases results from a systematic mapping exercise that aimed to identify the availability and distribution of online educational resources tailored towards the families, carers and support persons of people with multiple sclerosis (PwMS).
Results highlighted a saturation of repeated information online, which may prevent PwMS from accessing tailored local resources that provide a broader range of information. There was an overall lack of information to support patient–healthcare professional communication with the families, carers and support persons of PwMS. The insights from this poster may inform the development of future educational programmes and resources.
