MS21 was delighted to host its 4th symposium at the 28th Annual Meeting of the European Charcot Foundation (ECF) on Thursday 19 November 2020. The debate, titled ‘A hazy understanding: the effects of cognitive symptoms on patient engagement with care’, was presented by MS21 members Dr Paola Kruger, A/Prof Sarah A Morrow and Prof Dawn Langdon, and introduced the group’s latest research focus.
Discussions centred around controversial questions such as ‘should cognition be considered a higher priority to physicians than mobility?’, and also explored how cognition is currently addressed and measured, as well as the difficulties of distinguishing between cognitive symptoms of MS and natural ageing in a patient population with an ever-increasing life expectancy.
