16 June 2020 – Virtual Symposium.

The ParadigMS Foundation and the Belgian Study Group for Multiple Sclerosis (BSGMS) organised for their first interactive and fully digital learning experience.

ParadigMS Fifth Symposium

Covid19 threatened to throw a spanner in the works but we converted the event quickly into a fully digital livestream symposium.

As in 2019, we sent attendees home with valuable new knowledge through workshops and a plenary session that could be immediately applied in daily practice.

Neurologists, neurologists in training, nurses, researchers and healthcare professionals interested in MS experienced this conference in a new way.

The programme included the following presentations

  • Progressive forms of Multiple Sclerosis: pathogenesis and treatment options by Carlo Pozzilli (Italy) and Bart Van Wijmeersch (UHasselt).
  • NMO spectrum disorders: clinics, diagnosis and treatment options by Nikolaos Grigoriadis (Greece)
  • Biomarkers in MS by Nikolaos Grigoriadis (Greece)
  • Epidemiology of MS by Carlo Pozzilli (Italy)

You can consult all recordings of these presentations under ‘learning material’.
