    Outstanding webinar! Dr. Shapiro’s lecture was the most informative one hour in the subsequent 19 years. The stuff Can Do MS is putting up is cutting edge communication use of the Internet. I went to the CAN DO Program 19 years ago. It was the most rewarding 5 days of my 25 years with MS. There I learned to accept the disease I had. Thank you to all involved.

    Multiple Sclerosis Emerging Therapies Collaborative - UPDATE

    Posted Friday, November 18, 2011

    News from the National MS Society

    The Multiple Sclerosis Emerging Therapies Collaborative – which includes the members of the MS Coalition, the American Academy of Neurology, and the VA Multiple Sclerosis Centers of Excellence East and West – has as its mission:

    To develop and disseminate timely, evidence-based resources to persons affected by multiple sclerosis and health care professionals, in order to promote optimal, individualized treatment of the disease by facilitating effective communication and medical decision-making

    The emergence of new MS therapies is both exciting and challenging for people living with MS, the clinicians who treat them, and the organizations that serve them. The groups that form this Collaborative have united to speak with a single voice in an effort to promote understanding and reduce confusion within the MS community concerning newly emerging MS therapies.

    The Collaborative has established a dedicated, rapid-response website that will present downloadable information sheets for professional and lay readers about each newly-approved treatment. The information sheets, which include the known benefits and risks of each treatment as well as answers to commonly-asked questions, are written to complement one another in order to promote clinician-patient communication. Users can direct questions to emergingtherapies@ms-coalition.org.
