9th of March 2017, second ParadigMS Symposium. The ParadigMS Foundation and the Belgian Study Group for Multiple Sclerosis (BSGMS) organised an interactive learning and networking experience. Here you can review one of the three lectures that were on the agenda: Monitoring of MS
Prof Sven Schippling gave a clear explanation on how to monitor MS in practice through the use of MRI technique.
Sven Schippling is currently Deputy Head of the Department of Neuroimmunology and Clinical Multiple Sclerosis Research (nims) at the University Hospital Zürich, Switzerland. He is also the Co-Director of the Clinical Research Priority Program MS (CRPPMS) and Consultant Neurologist at the Department of Neurology at University Hospital Zürich.
Schippling’s areas of special interest are clinical neuroimmunology, mainly within the fields of multiple sclerosis (MS) and neuromyelitis optica. His research focuses include multimodal imaging methods in MS, such as magnetic resonance imaging and optical coherence tomography, transcranial magnetic stimulation and clinical trials including stem cell therapies in MS (haematopoietic and mesenchymal).
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.
