Workshop for MSers – tomorrow!

Hey all,

Researchers from the University of Leeds are running a workshop for MSers and their caregivers so they can comment on the findings of a study on how people with RRMS make decisions about treatments.

In the workshop you will be asked to give your views on a number of factors that other people with MS have identified as being important when choosing treatments. Then these views will be discussed in small groups. In this way you will help researchers to refine and validate the study findings. If you wish, you are welcome to come with your care giver. The care giver does not need to be a ‘formal’ care giver but could be anyone who may be coming with an MSer who is able to comment on decisions regarding treatment options.

The workshop will last around two hours
Refreshments will be provided and a thank you shopping voucher (£20) will be given to attendees
Travel expenses will be covered (please keep your receipts and tickets)

Morning session: 11.00am – 1.00pm
Afternoon session 2.00pm – 4.00pm

Location: Russell Square House, 10-12 Russell Square, (1st Floor Seminar Room 115), WC1B 5EH

Please email Dr Ieva Eskyte – [email protected] if you’re interested in taking part.

Well the answer to how long it takes to get to LGI and see an MS specialist is a long long time. I think you have the misfortune to be in the Kirklees and Calderdale health authority. My recommendation is scrap Leeds and go to Sheffield Hallamshire especially if you are thinking of Lemtrada as an option.
