Minimum two MS experts collaborate to produce an educational slide deck. These slide decks are presented (live) to ParadigMS members, peer reviewed and updated.
The slide decks are published on the ParadigMS website “on behalf of ParadigMS”.
Based on the slide decks, publications are produced. These publications are peer reviewed and published as consensus publications.
Regional (fe: Scandinavian countries, Benelux, …) or national events where state-of-the-art science is transferred to general neurologists and other care givers (nurses, etc) that are confronted with MS in their day to day practice.
Webinars can complement the educational events.
The educational slide decks, events and webinars can be important building blocks of accredited educational programs.
