Brain health: time matters in multiple sclerosis

Brain health cover 175

Brain health: time matters in multiple sclerosis presents consensus recommendations on diagnosis, therapeutic strategies and improving access to treatment in MS. Its core recommendation is that the goal of treating MS should be to preserve tissue in the central nervous system and maximize lifelong brain health by reducing disease activity. The report calls for major policy changes aimed at achieving the best possible outcomes for people with MS and those who care for them.

Brain health: time matters in multiple sclerosis was developed by an international multidisciplinary group of experts under the chairmanship of Professor Gavin Giovannoni and has been endorsed by a number of professional associations and advocacy groups.

The report, published by Oxford Health Policy Forum, is available for download on the dedicated MS Brain Health website www.msbrainhealth.org along with a number of other resources.MS Brain Health logo
