Stornoway research day series: Current and upcoming treatments

Another talk from our Stornoway research day series. Here, Dr Pushkar Shah talks about multiple sclerosis treatments that are currently available, and ones that are being developed.

The talk is part of a trip by the Barts-MS and Glasgow teams up to Stornoway, on the Isle of Lewis, in April 2018. In a change from the traditional research days held in London, Barts-MS teamed up with the Glasgow neurology team to present two days of talks: a day of talks to healthcare professionals on the island; and a day of talks to patients and their families. There are no neurologists on the islands and patients have to fly to Glasgow. Yet rates of MS are some of the highest in the world. The teams wanted to help healthcare professionals to more effectively care for their patients with MS, and to empower the patients and their families so they can self-monitor and better control their care and treatment. Read about the trip to Stornoway.
