One of the important contributions, led by Dr. Montalban (ECTRIMS) and by Prof. Gold (European Academy of Neurology), is the consensus on some updated recommendations for the treatment of MS which are based on current scientific evidence. These recommendations will materialize into a comprehensive guide of european scope, which will also take into account the patients’ voice and opinion. The guide will be intended for healthcare profesionals that partake in the treatment and care of people with Multiple Sclerosis, including neurologists, nurses, family physicians, neuropsychologists and ophthalmologists.
