Overcoming MS endorses policy report 

Global charity, Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis (OMS), has become the latest organization to endorse the policy report, Brain health: time matters in multiple sclerosis

Gary McMahon, CEO of OMS, commented, “It’s so important that we, and all relevant stakeholders, work together to raise awareness of the importance of early diagnosis, treatment and equally important lifestyle changes, to offer hope of a brighter future for people with MS.”

The report, available in English and German, has now been endorsed by 50 professional organizations and advocacy groups.

Quality standards gaining international attention  

Last month we announced the publication of International consensus on quality standards for brain healthfocused care in multiple sclerosis, in which we outline a timeline for key steps in the MS care pathway.

We are delighted to see that this publication has been gaining wide attention online. It has been ranked in the top 5% of ‘most talked about’ research outputs and shared across the globe.
