Brain health in multiple sclerosis: a nursing resource – now available    

The authors of the consensus policy report, Brain health: time matters in multiple sclerosis, have teamed up with five MS nurses to create Brain health in multiple sclerosis: a nursing resource.

This short guide highlights the most important ways that nurses can help people with MS to maximize their lifelong brain health.

We’re launching this new resource at CMSC 2017 this week (see below).
