CME portals for HCPs designed to keep MSers out. Why? #MSResearch #MSBlog
"I am personally involved in several different CME (continuing medical education) platforms to help disseminate MS-related knowledge to healthcare professionals (HCPs). The frustrating thing about most of these web portals is that HCP education is done via a firewall and requires people to register and state that they are who they say they are. One of the portals that I contribute to is the Global MS Academy; the platform is very innovative and interactive. Being interactive helps the learner remember and engage with the information being presented. It is a great pity that MSers can't access this and other similar portals. In an era when knowledge is being rapidly democratised and access to knowledge is virtually free is this model sustainable? I suspect MSers want access to the same knowledge and information your neurologist and other MS healthcare professionals have access to. To make sure my assumption is correct I have opened a quick two-question survey. If you have time please complete it and have your say."
