Many people who provide medical, social or therapeutic services to people with MS are part of what is termed the Health Care Team or Multi-Disciplinary Team. In MS, a coordinated approach to managing the various affect of MS can prove most beneficial. Therefore making the best use of specialists in different fields or disciplines will capitalise on your treatments and interventions.
MS Ireland’s team of Regional Community Workers have much experience in working with the multidisciplinary team and the person or family living with MS. They can offer assistance on how to maximise the benefits of working the team and accessing their services.
