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.

ABSTRACT
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.
