17th of March 2016, first 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: Quality of life of patients with MS: the ideal outcome.
When you look at the definition of paradigms you can highlight one word and that is care. Dr. Lysandropoulos wants to talk with all kind of care givers because MS is an important example of a disease in which you need a multi-disciplinary approach.
Why do we care about our patients? What is our goal when we treat them?
You have to go beyond treatment, you have to go to the part of the disease that is hidden, namely the quality of life.

Minimum two MS experts collaborate to produce an educational slide deck. These slide decks are presented (live) to ParadigMS members, peer reviewed and updated.

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.
