Welcome to Shift.ms’ web page for MS healthcare professionals (HCPs) providing resources on discussing work with their patients. Here you will find our short compilation video, as well as helpful tools and resources, full video interviews and further reading on the topic of work as a health outcome.
Between 2016 and 2019 Shift.ms delivered a Comic Relief funded project which aimed to improve employment outcomes for people with MS. In this phase of the project, Shift.ms explored and promoted the topic of ‘work’ as a clinical health outcome among specialist MS HCPs through a pilot study. The resources developed for MS HCPs can be found here.
Please watch our highlights video featuring interviews with people with MS, as well as clinical and policy leaders in the work and health agenda. If you want to see the longer conversations with the experts, please click the ‘Full interviews’ tab.
Below are helpful resources mentioned by our experts in the ‘highlights’ video. Please consider drawing on these for your own practice or professional development.
This guide is being piloted and can be used to help structure conversations about work with your MS patients.
