Burning Debate at ECTRIMS today 4pm (UK time)
Tune into our twitter feed and follow the hashtag #burningdebate at 4pm today (45 mins time) to follow the Burning Debate from ECTRIMS conference. We have Dr Klaus Schmierer arguing FOR the motion: Should people in wheelchairs be included in progressive trials, and Dr Patricia Coyle arguing AGAINST.
The debate will be chaired by Dr Celia Oreja-Guevara. Unfortunately the debate will not be live streamed, but we will be covering it on Twitter where you can follow the discussion by searching for the hashtag . A twitter feed will be projected in the debate room, so any comments or questions will be voiced : ) At the end of the debate, the BartsMSblog twitter account will post two tweets, one FOR the motion, one AGAINST. The tweet that is re-tweeted the most will win the debate. A secondary aim of the debate is to encourage clinicians to get onto twitter and use it in a professional manner.
