ECTRIMS Summer School 2013

"Every year the ECTRIMS Executive holds a summer school to teach young researchers in the field of MS. This is the first time I will be speaking on one of these courses. It is being held in Bari, in the south of Italy. I am looking forward to the trip very much; more thinking time. Maybe I will produce less controversial posts this time. The following is the programme for the 3 days; I note  there is nothing on MSer or public engagement. This is something that needs to be there for the future. I would be interested in your comments on the principle of the Summer School and the programme."

  1. Agreed, there should be something on public engagement - this will become a bigger feature of all medicine, I believe. People have the will and tools to become much more knowledgeable about treatment options, and want to work in collaboration with their health care professionals.

    1. Agree with you. Public engagement is something we take very seriously and this blog is a shining example. It's high time that more groups make this a priority.

  2. I'm jealous - enjoy the weather and the great food. Perhaps you could brush up on your Italian.

    Bring Dr Mouse back some nice Italian cheese.

  3. Hello,
    Its all looks a bit theoretical and not much thought given to those suffering from MS and how an MSer copes with their long term disabilities. I would have thought that a bit on the practical aspects of living with the disease would be essential.

    Is this typical of these conferences. Agree with thoughts of Mouse Doctor 2

    I fancy a trip to Bari, have not been there for 40 years
