A mapping study to compare the educational offerings for patients in the fields of multiple sclerosis and HIV in Europe and Canada. Presented at ECTRIMS-ACTRIMS, Paris, France
Rieckmann P et al. 2017
This poster was presented at the annual congress of the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) in 2017, and showcases results from a mapping exercise which aimed to compare the number, format and topic of online patient educational resources for multiple sclerosis (MS) with those for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). This poster also presents analysis on the stakeholders who shared these resources.
Results showed that the educational resources for both MS and HIV come from a number of different sources and cover a wide variety of topics. There were also many differences in the educational offerings for the two diseases which highlight potential educational gaps for MS. For example, the MS educational landscape offers fewer resources on social/legal information, covering topics such as employment rights, compared with HIV. Furthermore, more information is available via social media for MS than for HIV, which has a higher proportion of resources from centralized organizations, such as government agencies or public health providers
