Comparing HCP and patient perceptions of conversations about disease progression in MS
Williams M et al. 2020
This poster was presented virtually at the annual congress of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) in 2020, and reports on the results of a 6-question survey developed by MS in the 21st Century to gain insights into the perceptions of healthcare professionals (HCPs) and people with multiple sclerosis (PwMS) of conversations about disease progression.
The results revealed several differences in HCP and PwMS perceptions of disease progression discussions. Barriers and common assumptions which limit discussion of progression were discussed.
The insights from this poster can be used to inform and improve HCP/PwMS communication about disease progression.
